Back Bay Home of the Week: 42 Commonwealth Ave., Unit 5

Luxurious penthouse unit available on the first block of Commonwealth Ave.

Commonwealth Avenue. This legendary street can lay claim as probably one of the most well-known addresses in the state. This fantastic three-plus bedroom penthouse is conveniently located on the first block of Comm. Ave. within walking distance to many of the city's cultural activities, retailing and restaurants and also boasts some of the most scenic views of many of Boston's infamous structures.

This spacious and extraordinary unit tenders direct elevator access into a sprawling well-renovated 2,375 square foot duplex penthouse. A large, elegant living/dining room offers not one but two main focal points. One is the mounted flat screen tv mounted above the fireplace that is flanked by custom built-ins and the second is actually outside; the picturesque city landscape. The open gourmet kitchen provides an incredible amount of space for family and guests to gather during meal preparation, which contains all the upgraded ingredients in top-of-the-line appliances, granite surfaces, an abundance of storage space and a convenient breakfast bar.

The upper level master suite will exceed expectations with its luxurious accommodations of en-suite bath, sitting room, wet bar, oversized closet and private roof deck. Two handsome bedrooms are also located within this unit as well as a full and a half bath with many equally well-appointed deluxe and modern enhancements.

Only five units are located within this historic 100+ year old building and future residents will be delighted to experience both the Boston of yesterday and today as they approach their home with its many exterior period features and as they enter their contemporary and stunning home. An exclusive parking space also comes with the purchase of this penthouse and all common maintenance responsibilities are fulfilled with a monthly fee. Extended family, the four-legged kind, will also enjoy these lush comforts as pets are more than welcome at 42 Commonwealth Ave.

The city of Boston truly blossoms throughout all four seasons which can be enjoyed easily by foot or from the top floors of this striking penthouse. However the new homeowners choose to experience the city, from this address, they will never be disappointed.
