The living room is large and light-filled. Depending on the needs and desires of the residents, the flexible space in this room can easily delineate formal dining and living areas. One might also put a comfy chair in the corner nook to create a cozy reading area.


No matter which way you place the furniture, it will always be a “room with a view” as two walls are lined with expansive windows.


“A lot of people enjoy looking inside the Prudential Tower,” famed for its Skywalk Observatory and Eataly, an Italian marketplace and restaurant, “especially at night when it’s illuminated,” Ventresca said.


At certain times of the year, family and friends can celebrate the local sports championships with a bird’s eye view of the animated Duck Boats rolling down Boylston Street.


The sleek, custom European-style kitchen is decorated with a mini-subway tile backsplash that complement the granite counters and the stainless steel GE Profile appliances. A wall-mounted drop leaf mini-table is an included perk, conveniently placed for catching a snack or eating a casual meal or when an extra shelf is needed while preparing meals or making a shopping list.


Spacious and gracious, the master suite is well-appointed. The bedroom lets one relax and spread out in a king size bed. Two custom California closets, one a large walk-in, provide all the room necessary to organize clothing, footwear and accessories.


Stepping through the spacious walk-in closet-dressing room into the large and luxurious bathroom reveals a separate soaking tub and lighted glass shower. The marble-floored bathroom also has a long vanity with two sinks and plenty of storage.


A second bedroom, which also has an en suite bathroom with a combination shower/tub, is great for family or guests. This space, accessed from the living room, could easily accommodate a den or personal office if preferred.


While beautiful gleaming hardwood floors embellish the common areas, plush carpeting envelops the bedrooms. Attractive crown moldings emphasize the 10-foot ceilings. Additional in-home amenities include an in-unit washer and dryer, zoned central heat/air and recessed lighting.


The new residents will delight in the five-star services and amenities that combine New England elegance with refined Oriental touches to create a distinctive hospitality experience: 24-hour concierge, doorman, valet parking, dry cleaning, room service plus preferred reservations at Mandarin’s around the world.


An indication that this is a pet-friendly building - two golden retrievers often greet people with a few thumps of their tails when they are not lying by the front door snoozing.


The residents and their guests will enjoy fine dining at the French-inspired bistro Bar Boulud and shopping at on-site high end boutiques. The in-house chefs can cook an intimate five-course dinner or cater an elaborate private party in your home or in the function rooms.


Residents receive a discount membership to the 16,000-squarefoot, state-of-the-art fitness center and award-winning spa that co-stars his and her vitality pools and quartz crystal steam rooms as well as a comprehensive array of holistic treatment modalities to relax and revitalize the body, mind and spirit.


A 24-hour business center includes two conference rooms outfitted with projectors and televisions that can be reserved for professionals hosting business meetings; out-of-town associates can be pampered throughout their on-site stay at the illustrious hotel.


The Residences at Mandarin Oriental is connected to the covered arcades of the shops at the Prudential Center. It’s also a short ways to Copley Place. Accessing them during inclement weather is easy, safe and convenient.


The Boston Public Gardens, Boston Common and the Esplanade as well as a plethora of museums and theaters provide plenty of entertainment year-round.


Elite living, enriching amenities and perfect location are all part of the package at the Residences at Mandarin Oriental.


“The Mandarin brand is synonymous with luxury,” and “the amenities are unparalleled, even with new construction going up,” Ventresca said. “Many of the developments are built further out. For people who really want to be in the center of it all, the Back Bay really is where the heartbeat of the city is,” Ventresca said.


Whether you’re looking to live in the Residences at Mandarin Oriental or rent out the deluxe unit, the property is a great investment. The proximity to Northeastern University and other schools via a quick ride on the T makes an ideal spot for college students or working adults, whether it is for you, your children or other people.


The Residences at Mandarin Oriental embody the very best of urban living in an exclusive oasis of private residences.
