About the Property

Just renovated studio apartment on fabulous Charles Street!

Completely renovated in the summer of 2012, this studio apartment is a joy to experience. Second floor walk-up with two large, sunny windows facing the back of the building. Very private and you don’t get Charles St. traffic noise. Non-working but gorgeous marble fireplace. The “small is beautiful” mantra fits in every way. It includes a fully equipped, extremely functional kitchen with new appliances, an eat-in kitchen counter, living room, desk, dining table and chairs and a cozy bed nook that is hidden from view. Quality linens and towels. The bathroom has a shiny new tub and vanity that fit in beautifully with the 1920’s black and white basket weave tile floor. The owner/architectural designer has anticipated your every need and provides you with a beautiful little package that is so inviting, it feels like you’ve stepped into your own new home. You'll love walking downstairs and being in the center of sweet Charles Street, with everything at your finger tips.
Fresh, cozy and comfortable. Staying here is a memorable and unique experience.
Free WiFi, a Hi-Fi radio with an iPod dock, 42 inch flat screen TV and DVD player with DVD collection, large walk-in closet.

Car: Not Necessary

Ideally located for visiting the rest of the city, Charles St is Beacon Hill's main street. Catering mainly to the surrounding affluent neighborhood are wonderful food shops such as Savenour’s, upscale clothing boutiques, antique stores and enticing cafes and restaurants. At one point, this street earned the honor of 'the most civilized street in America”. The evidence is clear: graceful homes, pretty facades, well-tended gardens, flower pots all abloom – all pointing to a well loved and cared for neighborhood.

Beacon Hill is one of Boston's smallest and most historic neighborhoods, featuring rows of brownstones and grand townhouses. Within this area, the most exclusive is Louisburg Square, which until this day remains as one of Boston's most sought after, and expensive addresses. Louisa May Alcott lived there and John Kerry lives there now.

The area is also a treasure trove for fans of the famous local architectural icon, Charles Bulfinch (the man behind the nearby State House, among others), who designed many of the patrician homes on Beacon Hill.

The famous Boston Gardens and Commons are at one end of Charles Street and the other end takes you to Mass. General Hospital or the Boston Esplanade and walkway along the Charles River.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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 Hancock St. as well.

Why the Owner Chose Beacon Hill, Boston, MA, USA:
Charles Street on Beacon Hill! Need I say more! Can't beat the location.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Once again, Charles Street! It's awesome and close to everything.
