                          Year Purchased: 2014

                          About the owner: Husband and wife, Richard and Victoria are your hosts. They already have 9 apartments in Boston that get first class, five star reviews and they can't wait to bring you their newest unit at the Kensington.

                          Why the Owner Chose Boston:
                          This is a hot neighborhood that has been completely redeveloped and this is a fantastic NEW building. The views are amazing and the apartment is brand new, with a great fitness center and a seasonal outdoor roof pool. This is where people want to be and we are so glad we have a five star spot! Early this year we put together unit 1404 in this same building and we love it. The people here make the Kensington one of our favorite spots, period and when we had the opportunity to get an identical apartment on the 17th floor, we jumped.
