On The Market: 51 Beacon Street, #4, Beacon Hill
For those who want the atmosphere and tradition of Beacon Hill but are looking for something a little more chic, there is an incomparable home available on the historic slopes. Created by noted architectural firm Ruhl Walker, this unit is one of five in the home and has never before been on the market.
This custom-created condo is a thorough renovation of a large floor-through. While contemporary apartments like this are more commonly available in Back Bay, most townhouses in this area are either extremely traditional or older and smaller. “There’s virtually no comparison,” Sprogis & Neale listing agent John Neale says of this modern home.
Each element of this residence combines traditional charm with contemporary living, from the lobby–finished with classic black-and-white checkerboard marble and a dramatic staircase–to the wide, open living area and high ceilings within the unit. “You walk out into this bright, modernist space,” Neale says of entering the home. “It’s a great contrast.”
Direct elevator access opens into a streamlined living room with incredible views out over the Boston Common. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances and stone counters, and the apartment has an expansive master bedroom with double walk-in closets and a grand, designer bathroom.
An unmatchable find in the city, this home also comes with another rarity–incredible parking–directly across the street at the Boston Common parking garage. There’s even a crosswalk straight to this fantastic home.
