On the Market: A Quirky and Colorful South Boston Single Family
Accent walls, a double decker deck, and deeded parking are all on offer with this home.
65 G St., Boston
Size: 2,700 square feet
This Southie attached single-family proves that you shouldn’t take everything so seriously. From the bold color choices to the accent walls throughout, the four bed, three bath stunner packs luxe details with a wink. It’s a personality-packed pad, perfect for those with a sense of humor—just check out that zebra wallpaper in the guest bath.
The dazzling white and light-flooded first level features hardwood floors, coffered ceilings and a quartz-wrapped fireplace. Foodies find a haven in the custom kitchen with its double-stacked cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and quartz counters. The mammoth eight-foot island calls for weekday breakfasts while the dining area—both spots anchored by cerulean statement light fixtures—is the perfect setting for long weekend meals. In the warmer weather, traipse outside to the deck. If you’re still stuck inside, the nearby powder room suggests a trip to tropical islands with its banana leaf wall covering and a teakwood accent wall.
On the second floor, up the stairway with its statement wall of filigree-like wallpaper, the main suite offers a glam getaway with its coffered ceiling and walls in the faintest puff of pink. Start the day with a quick rinse in the huge adjoining shower before you head to the two walk-in closets. Or, take your time with a soak in the teak-flanked Jacuzzi tub, where you can gaze out the window or catch up on Netflix on the smart TV on the wall.
Elsewhere, spaces are made for entertaining. A second living room with glossy cobalt walls and a wet bar awaits for entertaining on the third floor, where you can grab a cocktail after a work-from-home day in the handsome hunter green office. The guest baths balance whimsy with sophistication, with sleek furnishings and pops of color. Plus, the zebra wallpaper in one guest bath joins the dinosaur wallpaper in a guestroom, bringing the zoo to you.
The finished basement can find new life as a playroom, family media room, or even a gym. Meanwhile, take the play outside, where barbeques on the double-decker decks spill out onto the landscaped and fenced yard.
