Bathed in Beauty
Tucked away deep inside this Beacon Hill townhouse condo is Bostonâ€™s sweetest en suite.
Apparently, the sharing economy has reached the upper echelons of homeownership. Consider this 3,857-square-foot triplex in an 1852 Beacon Hill townhouse. The condo offers the posh amenities of Public Gardenâ€“side living without the burden of basement-to-roof responsibilities. Its developers, PEG Properties & Design (the Modern II, Chevron on Tremont), are known for taking high-end risks. They purchased this unit in 2004 and created a top-of-the-line interiorâ€”400-bottle stone wine cellar, paneled library with coffered mahogany ceiling, and smart-house technologyâ€”designed to be turnkey ready. Luxe bells and whistles aside, what we truly covet is the en suite master bathroom, finished in black-and-white marble. The oversize glass shower doubles as a steam room, but the centerpiece is the gorgeous claw-foot tub fit for a kingâ€”or, you know, the filthy rich.
