About the Property

Brownstone 1 Bedroom Condo with private garden and parking

The apartment was renovated five years ago as the architects own home.
After completion it was featured in several magazines and books for design excellence and inovative use of space, It was also featured on a television episode of HGTV's 'small space big style' and on ABC's sweet retreats.

The unit is loft style, very modern and sleek yet comfortable. European appliances and hardware was used throughout as well as extensive use of custom built ins and architect designed details and lighting. The rooms are decorated with fine contemporary furnishings and the architects own art collection.

The apartment is located in a small historic brownstone owned and renovated by the owner, it is one of four units in a quiet and well maintained private building.

Car: Not Necessary

The South End is one of Bostons most popular, energetic, and dynamic urban neighborhoods and a National Historic Landmark District.

The area is adjacent to Back Bay and Copley Square, Prudential Center, China Town and Financial District, and the Fenway / Symphony areas (all within a 10-15 min walk).

Besides being a distinctive historic residential district, the neighborhood has become one of the cities top dining destinations featuring over 100 restaurants, cafes, food shops and bakeries; In addition, numerous art galleries, small private shops and its historic architecture located on tree lined squares draw people to the South End.

The South End is the largest Victorian Row House District in the United States and was developed just before the civil war as Bostons premier neighborhood. By the 50's and 60's The South End fell into serious decay but as early as 1970 its come back started attracting many artists, intelectuals and students. In the 1980's The South End started to become a dining and shopping destination introducing it to main stream Bostonians and its tourists, Today The South End is one of the most expensive and desirable residential and commercial neighborhoods in the city yet maintains its young, diverse and energetic atmosphere.
