Many residences on Commonwealth Avenue, while beautiful, maintain some level of stodgy Victorian opulence that can be a turn-off for fans of contemporary design. Here, this 1880-built penthouse offers the best of both worlds, with a traditional Back Bay facade and modern interiors. An open layout is a highlight of the unit, with space for a living area and dining area connected to a clean-lined kitchen with a breakfast bar. Beamed ceilings are painted white, and dark wood floors polish the look. Two spacious bedrooms and two baths, including a spa-like master with walk-in closets and a soaking tub, are part of the design. A full staircase with a skylight leads to a private landscaped deck. Two parking spaces are available behind the building.
