Boston apartment description

'Strike me God if I could find a better place! ' To quote one guest comment. This historic building (Nathaniel Hawthorne lived next door in 1836) boasts old Beacon Hill charm, exemplified in this apartment. . The space is so well apportioned, you'll feel completely at home. In this small space, you'll find a breakfast room, office, living room, dining room and bedroom/bath. With the original marble fireplace with grand mirror above, the floor to ceiling windows, crown molding and ceiling medallion, this apartment is elegant. The lighting is designed to create whatever atmosphere you desire with dimmers on most lights, adjustable reading lamps over the bed, chandelier in the bedroom nook and under-counter and over-cabinet lights in the kitchen. The decorating is classic and comfortable.
There are many incredible restaurants within minutes by foot. Whole Foods is 2 blocks away - you can cook or pick up excellent healthy prepared foods if you just want to stay home and watch a movie.

Architectural designer/Owner has painstakingly considered every detail to make staying here a memorable and unique experience. Recently renovated. Every surface has been scrubbed, painted and/or built in last 18 months. This lovely 2nd Fl studio was the formal parlor for 1800s Brownstone. All new appliances including Miele dishwasher.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We are an architectural designer and social services counselor who live and work on Nantucket Island. In our spare time, we like to create 'homes away from home' and share them with friends and renting guests. We actually take a lot of pleasure anticipating one's every need in order to make each environment exceedingly comfortable and tasteful. Our children find it annoying to go to restaurants or hotels with us because we constantly deconstruct the design and reconstruct an ambiance that we would enjoy being in. An intimate, calm and comfortable ambiance is the key component to our success. We have no doubt you will feel that way in the spaces we have created on Beacon Hill. We have another apartment on Charles St. as well.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
