This penthouse apartment now on the market in the South End proves that you don’t have to climb to the top of a high-rise to get spectacular views. Thanks to multiple skylights flooding the space with great light, combined with impressive views of Back Bay, this unit has a lot to offer.

This condo has a unique attention to detail, with vaulted ceilings in the living room, walnut-stained oak floors, and exposed brick, offering a loft-style setting. It also has its own private rear deck with a gas line available for entertaining or relaxing by the incredible Boston skyline.

Located in the middle of Eight Streets Neighborhood in the South End, arguably the most desirable socket of the South End. “It’s a neighborhood within a neighborhood,” says Coldwell Banker listing agent Rob Kilgore; “so it’s just steps to all of the sought-after coffee shops, restaurants, and bars.”

Thanks to the size of the unit, it offers a price point just over a million dollars as opposed to many of the duplexes in the South End, which are slightly larger, taking the price point higher by approximately half a million.
