While this condo is in a concierged building, there’s no need to worry that this is a cookie-cutter apartment. This loft was not created by a developer, but was instead gutted by the current owner upon purchase. Completely recreating the space, the owner brought in a new, contemporary feel that sets this home apart. “It’s her design, her layout, her finishes,” says Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent Laura Spence.

The apartment above this unit–the closest to #401 in layout as it also extends from the building–does not have a private terrace, let alone a 900 square foot one, which is a defining feature of this space. “It’s unique. Not just for this building, but in general,” Spence says.

This home maximizes the beauty of the enormous patio with windows lining three full sides of the apartment. The spacious, open living and dining room open out onto the terrace, while the sleek and contemporary chef’s kitchen sits just behind that looking out onto all three with a long divider of custom cabinetry to separate the space. “It’s very glamorous,” Spence says. “It’s almost like Florida with the windows.”

With the fantastic patio to sit on and enjoy the view of Peter’s Park in the summer, a fireplace in the living room to relax in front of on chilly winter nights, a library with floor-to-ceiling custom bookshelves to curl up next to in downtime, and a separate home office, this condo leaves nothing to be desired. Right in the SoWa district of the South end, this area is teeming with people and has a fantastic energy to accommodate the strength of the space.
