On the Market: A Modern, Boho-Chic Dwelling in South Boston
The recently-renovated home boasts an adorable yard and a roofdeck with harbor views.
Size: 2,500 square feet
If you’re moving into the former dwelling of a well-known local contractor, you know your new residence is probably going to be well designed. At least, that’s certainly the case with this modern-meets-bohemian single-family home in Southie. Though built in 1893, the abode has a contemporary vibe today—all thanks to a 2016 overhaul that breathed new life into the Victorian-era space.
On the ground level, the bright kitchen’s white oak floors, Carrara marble countertops, and subway tile complement custom cabinetry painted in a blue-green hue. Pass through the open concept space to the other side of the sizable kitchen island, and a glass door at the rear leads to a private 300-square-foot backyard. Enclosed with rustic wood-paneled walls and outfitted with lifelike faux turf, it’s the perfect place to Zen out while lounging or kick back while grilling a meal. The yard also offers access to the home’s garden level, where brick walls, polished concrete floors, and snug quarters are ideal for cozying up on movie night or getting in a quick workout with abundant privacy.
Climb up the green-painted staircase to the upper levels of the home, and you’ll find three bedrooms on two floors—all with en suite bathrooms. The stunning sun-filled master features a walk-in closet, and the bathroom boasts a vintage rosewood and walnut credenza converted into double vanity, as well as a spacious shower outfitted with Italian porcelain tiles and Carrara marble.
Ascend the stairs one final flight to round out your tour, and you’ll discover the property’s 250-square-foot roof deck. That’s right: This city home boasts not one, but two outdoor spaces, and this one comes with 360-degree view of the neighborhood and glimpses of the harbor in the distance. Did we mention M Street Beach is a 10-minute walk away?
