Property description

The condo is a designer inspired oasis in the city. Steps from a tranquil garden where you can see the imposing I M Pei tower you are surrounded by the largest historic district of 1850s meticulously converted schools and churches, restored brownstone homes and rejuvenated gardens. The condo is bathed in light and has all the contemporary amenities. A european kitchen is at the core of the condo. There is a master suite with private bath, study/library or extra bedroom and half bath, full dining room, and spacious living room.
You are just steps from the Boston marathon finish line; the trendy back bay and the 'elite' shopping on Newbury street; Copley Square and the famous Trinity Church and majestic IM Pei tower. You are in the edgy South End with all of its unique restaurants, urban clothing designers and emerging art galleries. You are a ten minute walk from Beacon Hill and the beginning of the 'Freedom Trail' to Faneuil Hall in the North End, the Bunker Hill Monument and 'Old Ironsides' in Charlestown. You have access to the Rose Kennedy Greenway on the Boston Harbor and ferries to all the near islands and the fast ferry to Provincetown. And last but certainly not least, in the winter you are a ten minute walk to Symphony Hall the home of the Boston symphony with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops. During the summer you can hear concerts at the hatch shell on the Esplanade along the Charles River or you can watch the championship Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. In the fall and winter you can walk to the TD garden to see the Boston Celtics or Bruins win. You can run, ride or stroll in the many parks, trails and roads of the 'Emerald Necklace' that extends from Boston to the surrounding areas. And when you’ve seen all of the museums and architecture at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the International Contemporary Art Museum and the Isabelle Gardener Museum, you can explore the museums and campuses at Harvard, MIT, Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University and Brandeis to name a few of the myriad of universities and colleges in the Boston/Cambridge area. And if you're still looking for more to fill your days and nights the condo is a train ride to Gillette Stadium to watch the New England Patriots (and summer concerts) or explore Providence, Rhode Island and New York City!
