On the Market: A Striking Second Empire in the South End
With five bedrooms, seven fireplaces, and four parking spots.
26 Holyoke Street, Boston
Size: 5,090 square feet
Meet the new most expensive home for sale in the South End: a striking Second Empire asking $6,950,000. Sure, $1,365 per square foot is a pretty penny, but the newly restored townhouse boasts ultra-luxe features that make the price tag almost understandable.
For one, the kitchen offers Sub-Zero appliances, double-wall ovens, quartz countertops, and doors to a cute little balcony. Upstairs, the master suite comes with a walk-in closet and a bathroom with double-vanity sinks, and downstairs, the lower level is complete with a home gym. There’s also parking for four cars under a carport (with a green roof, no less), and above it, a roof terrace makes room for a hot tub and a wet bar.
All those brand-new bells and whistles certainly don’t outshine the home’s antique features, however. In addition to seven fireplaces, there are period crown moldings, high ceilings, and tall windows, not to mention the townhouse’s original limestone facade.
