Living Large: Creature Comforts

Five stories above Newbury Street, just out of earshot of the undergrads abusing their parents’ credit cards, sits this tricked-out condo. And because a wealthy developer built the 2,124-square-foot unit for herself, it is truly no-expenses-spared. She’s a serious chef who loves dinner parties (read: a spacious Poggenpohl kitchen with plenty of room for guests). She also enjoys getting into hot water. Literally: The master bath boasts a Zuma whirlpool, and the 800-square-foot terrace overlooking the Life Is Good store features a tub with 14 rotary jets. A private elevator opens into a paneled vestibule and a 22-foot-long dining room with enormous skylights. Wine and espresso? Those libations get their own room, complete with a Sub-Zero wine fridge. This penthouse spans the top of three townhouses, giving it a depth and breadth you simply can’t find elsewhere in the Back Bay, unless you consider the Mandarin Oriental. But your condo fee there would probably be 10 times the $900 you’d pay here. So suddenly this Newbury pad is starting to look like a bargain, amirite?
