While many homes in Boston have history and character, it’s rare to find one that can be accessed directly from the lobby elevator—by key, of course. Winter Place Residences, six new luxury condos by Origen Ventures, were developed in a group of Greek Revival-style buildings dating back to 1832, and are located above the former 137-year-old Locke-Ober Cafe, just one block from the Common.

Here in penthouse 2, the entry leads to an open-concept floor plan with a large, well-lit living area, a chefs kitchen, a breakfast bar, and a separate space for dining. Two large bedrooms each have ample closet space and their own bath. The unit features walnut hardwood floors throughout, and two private outdoor spaces—one off of the dining area and one on the roof. There’s also a shared roof deck with a full caterers kitchen—a unique amenity for a building of this size.

“The property is high-end and right in the middle of everything, but it’s intimate,” says listing agent Keith Shirley. “I think the fact that you have two private decks is pretty amazing.”
