On The Market: 20 Greenwich Park #1, South End
There is no question that the South End has been revitalized with an influx of high-end buyers (including Bruins players) and a renewed energy, making it a prime location to buy right now. A triplex just opened up on Greenwich Park that blends original architectural details with all of the modern amenities buyers are looking for.
“I’ve been selling since 1986, and back then there were better streets and blocks in Boston,” says Coldwell Banker listing agent Paul Whaley. “Basically I can’t think of one street that’s not a great street anymore.” With the current popularity of the South End, however, and a café and restaurant right down the block, a 5-minute walk to Whole Foods, and access to both a playground and a dog park, Whaley says that Greenwich Park is exceptional.
While the location shines, the unit itself stands out among other triplexes on the market right now because of the proportion of the rooms, which are noticeably more open. “The building may be wider by three feet, but it makes all the difference in the world,” says Whaley. Even compared with a competing property with brand new construction, the scale of the units is smaller, making this triplex a catch.
A front garden leads into the apartment, which is complete with a study, grand-scale living/dining room, and a gas fireplace. The kitchen opens onto a private balcony with space for seating and a grill. Below is a sunny outside patio, which is two-tier; the patio on the upper level is all fenced in with a gate that slides, so when you’re not in the back area, you can bring another car onto the patio, giving you one parking space inside the gate as well as outside.
