On The Market: 163 Marlborough #5, Back Bay
There’s no shortage of metaphors used to describe this property in the Back Bay: “You’re on the 50-yard line; it’s center court, the best seat in the house,” says Coldwell Banker listing agent Maureen O’Hara.
Situated between Marlborough and Dartmouth Streets, this condo is located in a nexus of activity in Boston. “You could conceivably live there for a year and not have to walk more than three blocks to have all of your needs met,” O’Hara says.
The property was originally built as a trophy property for the Cushings, a deep-rooted Boston family. As a corner building, it has an extra-large front yard, adding to the incredible façade. “It has a very calm, serene feeling when you walk up to the front door of the building,” says O’Hara of the building which she explains “lights up at night.”
Highlights include an extremely large “suburban kitchen in the city” that’s lit by a massive skylight, which runs the whole length and width of the kitchen, as well as a slightly raised formal dining area and an open living room.
“It’s really ideal for someone who wants to be right in the thick of the city but wants to be on a quiet street and not have a lot of noise,” says O’Hara.
