Boston condo description

Stunning! This neighborhood is one of Bostons coolest. On a tree lined street, with water fired brick sidewalks in the Historic District, this beautifully furnished studio was just renovated this year.

This is classic 'old Boston' on the Back Bay / Fenway line, everything is steps from the door to your own Studio in restored 1890s Brownstone.

Walk score of 97 - steps to 'restaurant row' and everything at your fingertips. You won't need a car, but if you do, you can use ZipCar or walk to Avis to pick up a ride.

Studio 3 is FULLY FURNISHED with the best, most comfortable and most fashionable, yet classic, furniture we could find from Crate and Barrel, Boston Interiors and Pottery Barn.

Setup includes a first class Murphy bed that folds up to wall with when you want it to disappear. When it's down, this plushly made up bed features a Posturpedic mattress that gets rave reviews.

Also for dining, a gate leg, drop leaf dining table hides by the marble fireplace waiting to be unveiled and comfortably seats 4.

A kitchen bar, with aluminum counter stools with backs makes a large work space, or a great place to enjoy dinner.

A a full size leather sofa bed, and a 42' HDTV with full cable, a dresser, leather chair and stool to match the couch with a coffee table make up the main living area.

Decorated with local artwork, and finishing the original wood floors with an area rug make this Studio one of the South End's fanciest!

The view from the windows is of a tree lined street, brick side walks and people walking their dogs, pushing their babies or going for a run.

The park that runs from Massachusettes Avenue to Back Bay Station has public basketball courts, tennis courts and community tended gardens all along the corridor.

This park is steps from this condo and bustling with people day and night. Walk a few houses down to the end of the street to access the park.

Included with every stay at Studio 3 are plush towels, linens and a fully appointed kitchen with service for 6, as well as pots, pans, knives, serving spoons, a wine key and all of the things that make up a great kitchen.

Book with confidence! Victoria and I will ensure your stay is perfect.

This place is steps from Copley, Back Bay station, Mass Ave orange line, Symphony and Prudential T stops, bus #1 and #39. It is near the hospitals, universities and almost any Boston landmark.

Managed, decorated, and outfitted by your hosts, Richard and Victoria - we only accept FIVE STAR RATINGS! We PROMISE you will love this place if you book and back it with our spotless reputation, managing and renting FIRST CLASS properties in Boston's Best neighborhoods for over 10 years.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are your hosts - Richard and Victoria. We have been traveling together for 18 years, and we have been Boston landlords since 2005. Our standards are 'FIRST CLASS and FIVE STAR' and we won't accept less. Since we started doing short term rentals it has become our passion to provide the cleanest, most tastefully furnished, and simply best accommodations available. In every circumstance we personally guarantee that everything will exceed your expectations. Every detail has been carefully though out and implemented to ensure the best possible stay.

Why the Owner Chose Boston:
This property met the standard for 'First Class, Five Star Accommodations' and we snapped it up. It was just renovated and it is in the best neighborhood in town. - it was an easy decision. This is Victoria's favorite location. It just feel like home. Steps to everything, it is central, but it is a real neighborhood feeling. The people are great, the history is deep, and the Studio is perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This a beautifully restored historic brownstone. There are only 5 units in the building. The tree-lined street, with brick sidewalks borders Back Bay and is two blocks from the Orange Line 'Mass Ave' T Stop. If you never leave the South End you can find everything you need, from amazing restaurants, to boutiques, galleries and shops - it feels like home right away.
