One of the fine luxury condos at Millennium Tower now has a new owner. Unit 3702 was sold for $2,550,000 on Feb. 25.

 

This home, which is located on the 37th floor, was originally listed by and has been sold with the Keith Shirley-Valerie Post Team of Engel and Volkers Boston.

 

Millennium Tower, which is the incredible 60-story towering glass palace of luxury and grace perched on the former site of Filene’s at 1 Franklin St. in Midtown, is still one of the most sought-after addresses in the city.

 

Since the grand opening three years ago, this has been a very popular place to call home for people desiring an exclusive mix of lifestyle amenities.

 

Millennium Tower hosts 442 luxury homes, incorporating a variety of floor plans among three classifications: City, Grand and Penthouse Residences.

 

Unit 3702 is one of the premier Grand Residence homes. This exquisite 1,486-squarefoot home with two bedrooms and two baths boasts an impeccable open design accented with wide-plank oak floors and exceptionally tall ceilings measuring a soaring 11.8 feet, bursting with traditional Millennium favorites plus one-of-a-kind thoughtful embellishments.

 

Collectively, this home showcases contemporary design, meticulous craftsmanship, state-of-the-art amenities and exceptional designer finishes.

 

The foyer opens to a spacious and flexible open area showcasing a well-appointed chef’s kitchen, serving as the hub of activity. This kitchen features Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances plus a handy full-sized wine refrigerator. Two elegant pendant lights are suspended above a gorgeous large honed marble island/breakfast bar with seating for three or four people.

 

On one side of the kitchen is a stunning living room; on the other is a formal dining room. While the living room entertains a custom gas fireplace framed by crafted built-ins, the dining area that can accommodate seating for eight people comfortably is graced with custom crafted cabinetry.

 

As with all the homes at Millennium, the master bedroom suite is spacious, offering a luxurious oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation and a haven for solitude and sleep. Unique to this suite are plush carpeting and custom California closets.

 

The en-suite bath looks and feels like a spa, complete with a Kohler Tea for Two soaking tub, large shower with a Grohe rain head and handheld shower, a double vanity and radiant heat under the marble floors to keep you warm during cooler times.

 

The second bedroom, which fits a queen– sized bed, has fitted shelves and cabinets. This versatile space can also be used as an office, library, hobby or multi-media room.

 

The aesthetically pleasing redesign of the guest bathroom comfortably accommodates the stackable washer and dryer conveniently relocated in the intimate area of the home.

 

The original laundry space, located in a closet facing the living room, was converted into a pantry. Along with plenty of other closets throughout the home, there is an abundance of storage space.

 

Another special treat are the windows. While every window in the home is insulated with UV coating and accessorized with motorized window treatments, the windows in the spacious living room wrap around the corner for widespread views. Whether you’re looking west at Back Bay, Beacon Hill and the Charles River or gazing south to the Blue Hills, the commanding, unprecedented vistas from all the floor-to-ceiling windows are absolutely breathtaking.

 

Residents at Millennium Tower have not only purchased a gorgeous luxury condominium – they have secured a place in a thriving, active community with an opportunity to create an amazingly, enriching lifestyle.

 

Millennium Tower offers a multitude of community features and activities for residents to enjoy. A 23,000-square-foot, two-story club entertains a high-class owner’s lounge featuring a private dining room, bar and function room. Residents can challenge each other to a game in the billiard parlor or enjoy a quiet afternoon of reading in the library, while children amuse themselves in the playroom. Entertaining on the outdoor terrace is intensified by the spirited fire pit.

 

Millennium Tower boasts the largest residential- only fitness facility in Boston, outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment. Residents can use a smart automated touch key on the exercise machines to access and record progress of their personalized fitness program.
