Boston condo description

Enjoy a stay in the middle of everything that Boston has to offer. This is a sunny condo WITH VIEWS - Boston Common and State House foliage - that few condos in Boston offer. The roof deck provides an expansive view of the Boston city skyline.

The location is perfect for exploring Boston – on foot or via public transportation. The unit is one block from the Freedom Trail and also from the Park Street subway station. Literally minutes away by foot are Beacon Hill, the Theatre District, Faneuil Hall, the North End, the Waterfront, Back Bay, and Downtown. Many of Boston’s famous restaurants and cultural attractions are near-by. Hospitals are a walk or short subway ride away.

This historic building has just been renovated. As part of the renovation the building lobby and concierge desk have been refurbished in elegant marble and wood paneling.

The unit itself has recently been tastefully redecorated and painted. Furnishings take advantage of classic high ceilings, ceiling to floor windows, and parquet floors. This specific unit has some of the best views – you will have views of Boston Common and State House gardens from the windows. Or visit the large building roof deck that overlooks the Boston skyline, Boston Common, Charles River, Beacon Hill, and the State House.

President Kennedy resided at this building in 1946.

                  About the owner: My wife and I have lived in the Boston area for many years and enjoy all that Boston has to offer. We now split our time between Cape Cod and Boston, renting out our condo when we are not in town. As long-time Boston area residents, feel free to ask us sightseeing questions when you make a reservation.

                  Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                  This property is a rare rental - great location and sunny, outdoor views. Very clean. The building has a rooftop deck (great breakfast and dinner views), an elevator, and security desk in the lobby.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This property is steps from (has views of) Boston Common and very close to Boston attractions such as the Waterfront, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, North End, Downtown, and the Theatre District.
