Back Bay penthouse has great location
In real estate, there’s the axiom: location, location, location. Now and then, however, there’s “location” in caps, bold lettering and underlined. This penthouse home at 157 Newbury St. between Exeter and Dartmouth streets in the Back Bay has that distinction.

In addition to three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room, Unit 5 is a southfacing 1,488-square-foot residence with a spectacular (and private) terrace overlooking the famed Boston thoroughfare and its score of celebrated eateries (formal or not) and well-known boutiques and shops.

All this and more (parking is also included) is listed by Keith Shirley and Valerie Post of Engel & Volkers - Boston for $2,700,000.

The terrace – all 500-plus square feet of it – is amazing, period. Rooftop views of the Hancock Tower, the Old South Church and the rest of the Boston skyline are mesmerizing.
