Less than two blocks from Boston Public Garden in the heart of Back Bay, a newly-listed penthouse is on the market for $1.8 million. In addition to the prime location, unique additions make this property a true standout.

Inside, hardwood floors, grand moldings, and smart built-in shelving are present throughout the space. The main living room has large front windows, a fireplace, and a striking mirror—handcrafted by the father of the previous owner and made of three different types of exotic cherry wood imported from Africa, it cost nearly $15,000 to make.

In the kitchen, neutral colors and a bold skylight open the space. “A portion of the ceiling was cut out so that a rather dramatic copper skylight could be installed,” says listing agent Will Loring. “On a mediocre day, it brings in great light.  On a sunny day, the light absolutely pours into the kitchen.”

The units bedrooms and study (an optional third bedroom space) also showcase thoughtfully placed built-in shelving and cabinetry. The master bath features marble countertops, double sinks, and a glass encased steam shower with dual shower heads.
