Back Bay Home of the Week: 214 Beacon St., Unit 3

This Victorian style Civil War era townhouse was custom built as one of five contiguous homes for developer William Dehon.

This tri-level penthouse residence encompasses an impressive 3,301 square feet of living space. The majestic sun-lit entry foyer boasting oak floors and an oversized floor-to-ceiling window guides guests to a sky-lit staircase and the home's main entertaining spaces. The spacious living room, which flaunts an original Carrara marble fireplace, offers spectacular views of the Esplanade and Charles River and contains French doors that lead to a 21 foot-long deck with even more splendid local scenery. In the middle of the floor is a fabulous open, formal dining area accented with a dramatically lit ceiling and built-in display cases. The sun-drenched L-shaped kitchen offers alternative city views overlooking legendary Beacon Street and includes a granite island and provides a great setting for informal dining before another Carrara marble fireplace.

The upper level boasts three generously-sized bedrooms, each with a fireplace, liberal closet space and share a full bath. The luxurious master suite is situated on the top floor and presents magnificent views of the Charles River and the Cambridge skyline. This renovated space features a wall of windows and an elevated ceiling and includes a dressing area with clerestory windows, a restored vintage linen cabinet, custom bookcases and a full, private bath with bead board wainscoting and a skylight. This level also includes a concealed laundry area and a large family room with more built-in storage, a fireplace and direct roof access.

Behind the building is a deeded garden space for this unit which would make an ideal location for summer grilling or a vegetable or flowering garden. With this unit, a slice or rural or suburban lifestyle is still possible in the city!

This enviable location is centrally located within the heart of Boston and while so much of the city is within walking distance, public transportation is nearby and this unit also comes with a deeded parking space. This charming home is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Boston living at its best!
