On The Market: 167 Commonwealth Ave #3, Back Bay
This fantastic property is in a beautiful building, in an even more beautiful location.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to snap up a two-bedroom condo right in the heart of Back Bay, an extremely prime location in the city. Even more enticing than the location, this condo is in a meticulously maintained building with eight other units and historic charm.
While many renovations of older townhomes in Boston completely convert the traditional details in the interior to a modern design when redone, this building has retained its charm over the years. “When the building was converted in the 70s, they kept a lot of the original detail,” says Gibson Sotheby’s listing agent Chris Anderson. Some of these include stunningly patterned hardwood floors and a period fireplace, among other aspects.
The second floor of townhomes is known for having the highest ceilings, the Italian piano nobile, according to Anderson. This unit, located at the front of the “noble floor” lives up to expectations with high ceilings throughout. Paired with a spacious layout and well-appointed rooms, this condo is the clear choice in the building.
And let’s face it, everything’s brighter on the sunny side of the street, so this home is a shining find.
