If your goal aesthetic is “Boston’s fine dining of yesteryear,” you’ll want to take a look at this condo for sale near Downtown Crossing. The two-bedroom residence is inside part of the former Locke Ober restaurant, and boasts the eatery’s original wood-paneled walls, mirrors, and gilded crown molding.

Locke Ober, once the third-oldest restaurant in Boston, closed in 2012. According to the home’s listing agent, Collin Sullivan, one of the restaurant’s original owners brought in craftsmen from France to create the dining room’s ornate marble mantle and china cabinets. Now, this dining room is the condo’s main living space, accessible via a private elevator.

Beyond the living room, a modern kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances and island seating for six. Each of the home’s two bedrooms boast walk-in closets, and upstairs, a sprawling roof deck comes with an additional kitchen and bathroom.

For information, contact Collin Sullivan, William Raveis R.E. & Home Services, raveis.com.
