On the Market: A Stylishly Renovated South Boston Home
An incredible kitchen and master bath, au-pair suite, smart home system, and spacious back deck and fenced-in yard round out this three-story Telegraph Hill house.
65 G St., South Boston
Size: 2,370 square feet
As nice as a home might be, it falls flat without a quality kitchen and bathroom. If you can’t take a relaxing shower or cook a nice meal, what’s the point of being a homeowner? This three-story dwelling scores high by those measures, with bright and fresh spaces you won’t want soon want to leave.
Take a seat at the eight-foot-long quartz-topped island, which looks sleek and cleans easily. Across from you, a wall of double stacked cabinets forms a white grid of storage, an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the slate-hued island base and lower cabinets, customized by Boston Cabinets.
A pot-filler faucet is conveniently installed above the stainless stove, and the main farmhouse sink looks out the window at the ivy-covered neighboring house. Trendy details such as a herringbone tile backsplash and a pair of floating shelves inject some youthful interest into the minimalist eat-in kitchen.
Wind your way upstairs to the master bath, which is flanked by two walk-in closets. There, shuttered cabinet doors bring in cabana vibes, and Spanish-style ceramic tiled floors reflect the current owner’s time living in Seville. A deep jacuzzi tub is framed by teak wood and glass subway tiling, positioned below an adjustable fixture made of exposed light bulbs that give off a warm yellow glow. Even considering its spa-like decor, the bathroom’s niftiest element may be the smart TV—hung at the perfect height for leaning back in the tub—which transforms into a mirror when not in use.
The Brilliant smart home system offers another cool chameleon moment, with the tablet serving as the control center for lighting, sound, video intercom, and more, and acting as a digital photo album when not in use.
To be clear: This house is more than a well-designed kitchen and bathroom. Large and well-lit bedrooms are also lovely spaces to kick back, and a lower level au-pair suite enjoys its own entrance off of the covered Trex deck and fenced-in backyard.
