Ask Alexa to queue up some Rene Rancourt and prepare your offer: Boston Bruins star Brad Marchand is putting his Lincoln Wharf penthouse duplex on the market tomorrow. But fear not—he’s not leaving the team or the city, just unpacking into even more spacious digs. So for those hunting for a sparkling three-bedroom condo with epic waterfront views at the outer edge of the North End and a bit of a claim to fame, a singular opportunity is about to come your way.
“It is bittersweet to leave the home where we started our family but plan to grow in the near future and needed more bedrooms closer to the rink!” Marchand told Compass. As for what he loved about the home? “Our favorite memories were the countless nights we spent on the balcony overlooking the skyline with the kids. We will miss living right on the water in walking distance to so many great restaurants and friends.”
Starting in the oversized foyer, the home doesn’t skimp on space. Up the steps, a family room with coffered ceilings and a chic trio of built-ins easily leads into the kitchen. Sunlight beams down into the eat-in through the overhead skylights, and a Dacor oven, Wolf range, and Sub-Zero fridge fill out the wall opposite a massive, quartz-topped island. Take a seat at the breakfast bar, or set a place in the formal dining room underneath an opulent chandelier.
The fresh gray and white palette that dominates the lower level continues upstairs in the largest bedroom suite. The huge retreat boasts dual walk-in closets and easily accessible city vistas from the walk-out deck that wraps around the home. And the hottest feature of all: When hockey is back in season, TD Garden is less than a mile away, so you can leave home during warmups and still make it to your seat before the faceoff.
