On the Market: A Sunny and Eclectic Abode in Dorchester
Original stained glass windows and two butler's pantries grace this Uphams Corner condo.
11 Pleasant St. #2, Boston
Size: 1,306 square feet
What’s better than a window-filled home on a corner lot saturated in sunshine? One where several of those windows are made of 19th-century stained glass, of course. Aside from being stunning original features, the multicolored apertures bring a sense of liveliness to the digs. Even if you opt for minimalist furnishings or a grayscale scheme, the golden and green glass panes will cast the space in rays of color.
Planks of oak and maple hardwood stop at the edge of the tiled kitchen, which claims not one but two butler’s pantries—one serves up extra storage space just behind the oven, and the other acts as a breezeway between the eat-in and the dining room.
A half-mile from the JFK/UMass Red Line stop and the Uphams Corner Commuter Rail station, the second-floor condo is well-connected. But for those who aren’t commuting anywhere at the moment, basking in the sun by the living room’s bay windows and decorative fireplace is a pretty nice way to spend a morning.
