On the Market: A Swanky Triplex Apartment Rental across from Boston Common
Check out the mahogany library in this four-bed Beacon Hill pad.
14 Chestnut St. # 1, Boston
Price: $18,500 per month
Size: 5,000 square feet
Located right across the street from Boston Common’s Frog Pond and nestled among a road of brick row houses with black shutters, it doesn’t get much more quintessential Beacon Hill than this home. And now, for $18,500 per month, you can rent it as your own.
Yes, $18,500 sounds like a ludicrous sum to pay each month, even considering its primo location. But paying $18,500 for 5,000 square feet breaks down to nearly the same price per square foot as those of us wiring $1,800 to our landlords each month for a 500-square-foot studio. Such is renting in Boston.
Take a closer look inside this four-bedroom triplex to see its opulence come into focus. Probably the most remarkable room is the mahogany-paneled library, where long, scarlet walls offset the rich wood built-ins and beamed ceilings beautifully. The three-story apartment contains a total of six carved marble fireplaces, plus custom bathrooms, some of which were modeled after the marble-clad baths of the London Ritz Carlton.
As for spaces to get a breath of fresh air, you can take your pick between the private brick patio and the giant roof deck. Still not convinced? Short-term stays are allowed, so you can try out the swanky digs for a minimum of three months before committing to settling in for good.
