Back Bay Home of the Week: 169 Marlborough St., Unit 2

The well executed conversion of this historic townhouse effectively blends its rich history with today's preferences and conveniences.

Originally built in 1878, this fantastic historical gem in the Back Bay has been completely restored by a premier Back Bay developer to offer luxurious settings for owners to relax and enjoy the picturesque city views. And for those owners looking for a more active lifestyle, this convenient address could be considered Boston's front step opening into a plethora of cultural, retailing and restaurant pursuits.

The period oversized windows and soaring ceilings in this spectacular second floor unit assume dual responsibilities: they not only endorse the beautiful scenery, which includes the Hancock Tower and legendary Marlborough St., they drench the 1,500 square feet of living space with natural sunlight. Lazy Sunday winter afternoons can be easily spent enjoying the paper in the south facing Living Room in front of the ornamental gas fireplace while overlooking the metropolitan landscape. The open, custom gourmet kitchen lends all the culinary accessories for successful meal preparation, including an abundance of cabinet and polished mother of pearl Quartzite counter space, Franke sink and fixtures, 36" Wolf six-burn range, convection oven, microwave and a sub zero refrigerator and wine cabinet.

Both well-appointed bedrooms have en-suite baths with Waterworks fixtures throughout, including a steam shower, marble counters and tub decks and shower benches in the master bath.

The Cabot Mansion has been an integral and prestigious component of the Back Bay streetscape for generations on notorious Marlborough St., well known for its exclusivity and quiet private neighborhood. The effective conversion of this historic townhouse into three private residences was done with such efficiency and consideration to the property's prolific history, yet still offers and complies with modern conveniences and preferences. It provides direct key access into an elevator, garage parking, efficient gas-radiating heating and high efficiency air conditioning systems and superb insulation for noise and heat control. All this was performed while still preserving and exposing the integrity of its rich past.
