Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays—especially if you’re still on the hunt for a new house. If you’re looking to lay down the welcome mat and deck the halls before year’s end, check out six of these gorgeous houses for sale. ‘Tis the season to turn the key!
Imagine hanging mistletoe in the doorways of this Victorian estate on Cohasset’s Little Harbour. This total renovation features a library, office, sitting room, sunroom, a spacious master suite, an in-law apartment, formal living room and dining room, and chef’s kitchen, all with spectacular water views. The kitchen’s large work island with three subzero fridges, Wolf double oven range, and Shaw farmer sinks give ample space to cook Thanksgiving and yuletide feasts for years to come. The master suite features a spa bath, dressing room with wet bar, and a large sitting room. The lower level boasts a private office, mudroom, and exercise room. The heated pool, sundeck, patio, private dock, three-car garage, and backup generator system are just extra tinsel on the tree.
Did you ask Santa for endless harbor and skyline views? Wish granted! This corner condo in the West Wing of Flagship Wharf offers floor-to-ceiling windows, a private deck, a custom-designed open kitchen with creative office space, an in-unit washer and dryer, walk-in closets, recessed lighting, abundant storage, and valet parking. The luxury full-service building at the head of the Boston Harbor offers a 24-hour concierge, fitness center, resident lounge, and elevator. Just steps away from lively neighborhood restaurants and nightlife, the waterfront location can’t be topped.
This hip home in the heart of the Seaport District is new to market, featuring an open layout with double living room and a dining area designed for heartfelt holiday meals with family and friends. Wall-to-wall windows flood the space with natural light, and a custom sliding wall instantly creates a second bedroom or office with closet, built-in storage, and shelving. The kitchen features Viking appliances, a double oven, gas cooktop, new custom upper cabinets, granite countertops, and a large pantry. The master bedroom has an ensuite bath, and large walk-in closet system. Take advantage of the full underground parking garage, but know that the full-service concierge building is only walking distance from cafés, restaurants, and all the retail shops you need to cross off the names on your gift giving guide.
Warm up this winter in your welcoming loft. The brick and beam corner home features 12-foot ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, 10 large windows to let in light, and a Juliet balcony. Enjoy an open granite kitchen with a custom-designed, four-stool bar next to an entertaining dining area. Stay cozy on snow days in this large master suite with a double window, huge walk-in closet, and ensure master bath. Use the second space as a private office, or convert into a second bedroom. This sophisticated spot has plenty of storage options and a generous laundry room. You won’t want to venture far when the frigid weather hits, so it helps that this to-die-for location has all the best restaurants, public transportation, and nightlife right outside your door.
This suburban four-bedroom in one of the best school systems in the country is the perfect place to call home this winter. The large living room has soaring ceilings and an inviting wood fireplace for roasting chestnuts. The master bedroom suite has not one, but two walk-in closets, plus cathedral ceilings. The bright living room leads to a patio surrounded by a half-acre landscaped lot, and the kitchen is a chef’s dream with granite countertops, a large granite island, and stainless steel appliances. Upgrades include a new boiler, windows, central air conditioning, and renovated bathrooms. For house hunters grappling on which neighborhood to choose, it’s beginning to look a lot like Lexington.
Nestled between the waterfront and historic North End, this boutique two-bedroom in The Bulfinch will be all you want for Christmas. Enjoy harbor views from floor-to-ceiling windows and a Juliet balcony, or whip up some gingerbread cookies in the open concept kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite countertops. The oversized bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and double vanity, while the rest of the space has inlaid hardwood flooring, a custom built-in, and recessed lighting. The breathtaking vaulted ceiling solarium gives residents year-round views, and you can access the stunning rooftop deck with sweeping vistas when it’s not below freezing outside. On-site management and concierge, deeded storage, and a full-size parking space make city living easy.
