On The Market: 5 Byron Street #5, Beacon Hill
“What is behind the door is totally a surprise,”Gibson Sotheby’s listing agent George Ballantyne, of this understated building in prestigious Beacon Hill. Acclaimed architect Graham Gund turned an incredible amount of living area into a bold, creative unit.
This home unfolds over more than 5,300 square feet of dramatic, loft-like living space, which Ballantyne cites as the only double-height space he has seen in this part of the city for years. The open interior is highlighted by massive south-facing windows and beautiful skylights, set apart by soaring paneled accent walls and grid-motif suspended bridges that make the space a foray into modern design.
“It’s the most sophisticated space I’ve seen on Beacon Hill for 33 years,” says Ballantyne, “more like something you would see in SoHo or Tribeca in New York.”
While this property is both visually and intellectually stimulating, playing with architectural design in new ways, it is also has the benefit of multiple private decks. In the unit, the expansive master suite opens onto a private garden deck, while an elevator in the building goes to all floors, including directly to the roof deck with Zen garden, which is completely private to this unit.
