The unbeatable location is within easy walking distance to both Porter and Harvard Squares. Everything you need is only steps away including public transportation, a bike lane along Beacon Street, Star Market, coffee shops, and endless shopping and dining. If you prefer driving to walking or biking, you will appreciate the two underground parking spots in the building’s heated garage.

An inviting, common courtyard welcomes you to the unit’s private entry where modern style awaits in this luxury unit with an open concept floor plan, high ceilings, and three levels of light-filled living space. Entertain to your heart’s content or enjoy comfortable living with an open concept chef’s kitchen and dining area featuring granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar peninsula, cherry cabinetry, gas cooking, a tile backsplash, hardwood floors, pendant lighting, and recessed lighting.

The living room opens seamlessly, offering the perfect space to relax by the gas fireplace as a large window welcomes the sunshine. A convenient half bathroom adds the finishing touch to the main level.

Outdoor living is easy with a glass door to a private patio perfect for summertime entertaining. There is an additional common patio area and greenspace to share and a community garden right next door. The community garden is set just behind Unit 3 and its patio, offering an extra private feel.

Two generous family bedrooms on the second level offer versatility, both full of natural light with hardwood floors, overhead lighting, and large double closets. Choose one as a home office or den, if desired. The full bathroom on the second level offers a tiled tub/shower and a pedestal sink.

Retreat to your private, treetop paradise in the third level primary suite featuring a large walk-in closet with built-ins, recessed lighting, hardwood floors, and a vaulted ceiling for an added feeling of spaciousness. A sliding glass door opening to the Juliet balcony is perfect for enjoying a summer breeze or for gazing out at the cityscape beyond. The spa-like primary bathroom has a dual sink granite vanity, a large skylight, Jacuzzi tub, and a tiled shower.

The heated underground garage offers two EV ready parking spots, bike storage, and additional locked storage deeded to each unit. Even the garage ramp is heated to melt snow during storms for easy access in and out. The building is Energy Star certified due to its carefully selected building materials and design including on-demand hot water, quality insulation, efficient appliances, and insulated doors and windows. What an amazing location set just across the street from an architectural landmark, The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and just outside the Harvard University campus. Commuters will appreciate the bike lane, the Red Line Station at Porter Square, and easy access to highway routes. It’s the luxurious urban lifestyle you have dreamed of.
