While beautiful, many of condos in South End brownstones feel narrow and compact, with light entering from opposite walls and rooms partitioned in between. This newly-listed penthouse duplex is different, featuring a spanning main floor that’s filled with light from all four sides. In the living area, the kitchen, dining room and living room flow together with wide-plank pine floors. Two large ceiling beams define the spaces. The living room has a built-in bookshelf and a wood-burning fireplace. In the kitchen, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops make for an inviting space. From the dining room, a full staircase leads to a large private roof deck with panoramic views. Two spacious bedrooms, also featuring pine floors, have ample storage.
