On The Market: 20 Tileston Street #PH3, North End
Who wouldn’t want incredible luxury, views, and access to some of the best pasta in town? This condo on the market in the North End offers those and more.
“To be in the center of the North End with a roof deck and parking is somewhat unique,” says Radford, so the apartment is a rare find.
Columbus Court was constructed in 1903 as a school, but was later renovated and turned into apartment buildings. “One of the attraction to the school buildings is that they generally have to retain ceiling heights, with ceilings that rise to 13 feet, which is quite striking,” says Coldwell Banker listing agent Jonathan Radford. The penthouse, added onto the original building, adheres to these requirements, with soaring ceilings and interesting angles throughout.
The contemporary architecture is only outweighed by the luxury features, including surround sound, a walk-in closet in the master bedroom, and a gas fireplace. The sunny aura of the condo is largely due to the Venetian plaster finishing on many of the walls, which reflects light during the day from the wall of windows and four skylights.
While Each room on the main floor (including the master bedroom) opens onto the roof deck overlooking the North End, the mezzanine level has views back to the Financial District.
With a wide range of ages and professions in the building, the condo would be an ideal home for those from singles and young couples working in the Financial district, to older couples moving out of the suburbs and into the city as empty nesters.
