On the Market: A Dazzling Residence in Beacon Hill
This fireplace-equipped master bath puts all others to shame.
142 Chestnut St #7, Beacon Hill
Size: 3,480 square feet
Luxury is the name of the game for this Beacon Hill condo, formerly three separate units that have since merged into their own city on a hill. Coffered and tray ceilings add dimension to the already spacious duplex, which takes up almost 3,500 square feet. Beautiful hardwood floors impress, too, and serve to ground the cavernous and whitewashed chambers.
Adding to the space’s architectural interest, a wide arched doorway leads into the kitchen. There, marble counters sit atop a pair of stainless steel ovens, and an intricate herringbone backsplash graces the wall. A grand staircase leads from the third to fourth floor, where plenty of sunlight pours through two French doors into an in-home office. Plus, recessed lighting illuminates a variety of built-in storage space in a closet that is a room of its own—just the excuse we were looking for to online shop from some summer collections.
When you’re done upstairs, take the in-building elevator down to the eight-unit townhouse’s common courtyard, which looks like a slice of European paradise. Arched embellishments enhance the interior walls, which enclose a brick paved patio.
With all that, the magnum opus of the condo is somehow still yet to come. The stunning master bathroom simultaneously says “nice try, kid” to every candlelit bubble bath, and solves a classic New England catch-22: We’re too hot, we’re too cold. Never again, in this soaking tub bordered by glass walls, which sits in a marble enclave with its own fireplace. Prepare for the best bath of your life.
