Situated at the corner of Comm. Ave. and Hereford Street, the Burrage Mansion is known to locals as Tom Brady’s former Back Bay apartment building. At first glance the building, designed in 1899 by famed Boston architect Charles Brigham, seems buttoned-up (see: the gargoyle- and cherub-clad exterior and the grand marble staircase in the lobby). But reigning over all of that historical glory is an ultra-modern, two-floor penthouse. Completely redesigned by Maho Abe, of Zen Associates, in 2005, the minimalist pad is perfect for the perpetual entertainer: The open floor plan can be customized with a movable partition; the alabaster around the fireplace makes a stunning statement in the living room when back-lit; and the stainless steel kitchen is equipped with Miele appliances and refrigerator drawers for stashing bottles of bubbly. After the guests leave, get some R & R in the creatively tricked-out turrets—there’s a hot tub in one, and a meditation space in the other. Or climb the cantilevered staircase to the master suite and sip a nightcap while you gaze at your kingdom…er, the Boston skyline.
