On the Market: 503 East First Street Unit 4, South Boston

This is the first building of its kind in Boston, and one of the units is now available.

There is no question that the Seaport is a budding market, with new businesses and an influx of energy to the area, and this building is distinct with loft-style units like this one featuring dark, wire-brushed hardwood floors and rooms lined with windows. “It’s a very particular property,” says Otis & Ahearn listing agent Mark Ruane.

The developer of this building used a Scandinavian-inspired design  to create this apartment complex, which is the first of its kind in South Boston. “This building really stands out,” Ruane notes.

The impeccable kitchen is lined with floor-to-ceiling glass tile, which contrasts beautifully with white Silestone counters, sleek cabinetry, and state-of-the-art appliances. The entertaining space is only outdone by the rooms, including a sumptuous master suite with two walls of closets and a full bathroom.

With nine other units in the building, each unit with some sort of outdoor space, only one other has a similar floor plan. Floor-to-ceiling glass double doors lined with drapes lead from the living room to the three-season porch, perfect for entertaining, with beautiful sunsets and skyline views. The porch also overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard, manicured with nearly $4,000 of maintenance.

Just three streets off East Broadway and minutes to the Summer Street bridge, this apartment has premiere access to all of South Boston and the emerging Seaport district.
