Having a balcony is a city luxury, let alone two balconies that offer up dazzling views of the skyline and harbor. But that’s what this condo has to offer. The unit itself is as bright and airy as standing out on one of those perches—whitewashed brick walls, lofty ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and vast maple floors run throughout the home, and a sweeping staircase anchors it all.

Among the white furnishings, an ethereal chandelier made of Italian-imported Murano glass dangles above the living room area like a crystal jellyfish. Through the open living area into the kitchen, hardwood gives way to honed granite flooring to coordinate with the granite countertops. A wraparound island with pockets of storage space and a Sub-Zero fridge and wine fridge populate the kitchen, and at the back of it a little breakfast nook is tucked in front of a window.

Up the winding staircase, skylights illuminate the master bedroom, and its bathroom features a marble soaking tub. With oversized windows, white brick walls, and a wooden beam, the second bedroom feels equal parts breezy and cozy—which is everything a waterfront penthouse should be.
