While many Boston residents may have had the opportunity to reside at this 122 year-old address, only one, the building's developer, has owned this spectacular penthouse within the Albert A. Pope Condominium Building since its 1997 renovation. This unique opportunity is a magnificently decorated 3,500 square foot home featuring the interior design work of Celeste Cooper of Repertoire, a Boston-based interior design firm. With a total of 7,000 total square feet, this unit also provides an ultimate indoor/outdoor Back Bay lifestyle with unparalleled views from every room, roof art and private, enchanting gardens.
This duplex consists of six rooms, three bedrooms and two and one half baths and is wrapped around 3,500 square feet of lush terrace gardens. If it weren't for the city views, residents might very well forget their urban lifestyle location. A green thumb is also not a requirement with purchase as these bountiful gardens are independently maintained by a Rainbird, five-zone irrigation system and a snow-melt system and also includes a 41" Viking grill, (some grilling skills may be required.)
Inside, the well-appointed 23 x 19 square foot master bedroom includes the unique warmth of a wood-burning fireplace, an enormous walk-in closet, a cedar closet and a marble-lined bath with a Kohler whirlpool tub and a four-jet shower. The gourmet 16 x 15 square foot kitchen is fully equipped with premier culinary accessories and appliances that include Brazilian black granite, mahogany paneled cabinets/kitchen island, a Gaggenau double wall oven, SubZero refrigerator, Bosch stovetop, vented Thermador hood and a Sharp microwave oven. The spacious 33 x 18 square foot exposed living room is a sleek, modern setting with a second wood burning fireplace along with a beautiful mahogany-paneled media wall and a exquisitely crafted banquette.
In addition to its luxurious accommodations, this wonderful home also includes amenities that include two-car garage parking, radiant heat, central air conditioning, intercom, doorman, security and concierge service. Also, its communal benefits include many utility costs and maintenance expenses within its monthly fee tendering more time to relax and enjoy the views.
