BOSTON

WHAT: A penthouse overlooking Boston Harbor, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms

HOW MUCH: $2,350,000

SIZE: 2,618 square feet

PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT: $898

SETTING: This condominium is in an old warehouse on the Boston Harbor waterfront, a former industrial neighborhood next to Boston’s North End now known for its loft conversions, private docks and waterfront parks. The mouth of the harbor is across the street; ships can be seen from the condo’s living room. Coffee shops, restaurants and bars are within walking distance. Bus and subway stops are within a few blocks.

INDOORS: This two-story penthouse is in a four-unit building built about 1890 and likely used as a warehouse. It was converted to a condo in 1986 and updated within the last seven years. Wood beams, brick walls and other vestiges of the original structure were left intact, augmented by contemporary fixtures such as stainless-steel kitchen appliances and walls of glass.

The entry level has a kitchen, a living area and two bedrooms. The second level has another, larger kitchen, a living and dining area and two bedrooms, including the master suite. Connected by a floating staircase, both levels have open floor plans and harbor views.

The second level is spacious and bright, with a vaulted ceiling paneled in skylights that rises nearly 19 feet, and a wall of glass facing the harbor. The kitchen is all stainless steel, from appliances to surfaces. A built-in wood credenza with a granite top extends from the kitchen into the living area along an exposed brick wall, painted white. Floors here are Asian walnut.

The master suite, in a loft over the second-level living area, has a massive skylight and harbor views. A heavy wood door salvaged from a barn inVermont slides to reveal the master bathroom, which has a jetted tub set against a rough stacked-stone wall, as well as a stone-backed shower and a custom wood vanity.

Parking is available at a nearby garage for about $400 a month.

OUTDOOR SPACE: The second-level living area opens to a 21-foot-wide deck overlooking the water. The deck has bench seating and a hot tub.

TAXES: Approximately $18,041 a year, plus $741.57 a month in condo fees, which covers hot water, gas, insurance and building maintenance

The Boston condo market continues to grow stronger

By

Boston Condo Sales Up

The Boston condo market continues to grow stronger. According to a recent Boston Globe article, condo sales have jumped an astonishing 29% since this time last year and the median sales price has seen a 6% increase. Consumer confidence has been regained in the market place and many buyers are beginning to re-enter the market taking advantage of low interest rates. The Waterfront market alone has shown record setting growth over the past year with a 21% increase in median sales prices and a 4.82% increase in price per square foot. CL Waterfront Properties, LLC president, Carmela Laurella, was quoted in the article saying; “We have more demand than we have property to sell…We can barely list anything without it going under [a purchase agreement] within a couple of weeks.” For questions and inquiries about Boston real estate please contact CL Waterfront Properties, LLC.

High Praise for CL Waterfront Properties from a Very Satisfied Client – Thanks!

By

Boston's North End

We Specialize in Boston's North End And Waterfront

Our Clients’ References Are Our Best Advertising

We always love to hear from satisfied clients – this glowing reference came from a recent sale in the North End:

“4/17/2012 – We owned a high end condo in the North End with a very unique 2000 sq. ft. outdoor deck. Because it was so unique, Carmela and her staff did everything possible to make certain it sold. Their approach was always  professional, creative, timely, gracious and helpful.

They provided input on removing personal items, staging if need be, lighting, high quality photographers at the time of the day when the deck looked its best ( even if it meant 2 or 3 shootings), were candid in their assessment of value compared to the real estate market; answered and returned phone calls within minutes (even on weekends); made certian the unit was opened and closed properly before and after showings: sought advertising by having write-ups in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Home, Boston Globe; provided links on the web site to TV shows and magazines in which our home was featured; made suggestions on details that should or should not be addressed and generally were very very service oriented and customer oriented. I would use Carmela Laurella again in a heart beat.

– Karen L. Semmelman, Boston Ma”
