The spacious living room has a stunning gas fireplace and an outdoor terrace.

Great news! One of our biggest sales this month was published as a story in the Boston Homes: The Complete Guide, May 28-June 3 issue.  Here’s the article, read all about it!

One of the stunning waterfront penthouses at Burroughs Wharf was among the city’s spectacular sales in May.

Carmela Laurella of CL Waterfront Properties was both the listing and selling broker for this 2,322-square-foot triplex at50 Battery St., which has southern and northern exposures and sweeping views of the harbor.

It sold for $2.595 million. That translates to nearly $1,118per square foot.

“It was completely renovated”during the past three years, she said. “The master bath was taken down to the studs and rebuilt, creating a spa.” A Japanese soaking tub and a steam shower were installed, and shoji screens imported from Japan were added to conceal storage shelves in the bath.

The fireplace in the living room was taken apart and rebuilt as well. The entry to the home opens into the main living spaces, with a powder room and a sleek kitchen on the left and an open dining room and living room straight ahead. The maple flooring was pickled and bleached and gleams. Floor-to-ceiling windows flank a set of double glass doors that open onto a spacious terrace.

The top floor or seventh floor comprises a master bedroom suite with two spacious closets and a study, off which is another balcony. The bottom level or fifth floor has two more bedrooms with en suite baths and roomy closets. The smaller bedroom has a three-window bay.

The grand kitchen features stone counters, custom-built cabinetry and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.

The larger bedroom could serve as a family room, especially because there is a similarly sized deck as that off the living room. This room also has a refrigerator and a wine cooler for added convenience. Between the two bedrooms in the hall is acustom-built wine-storage area that can holdmore than 760 bottles, and around the corneris room to store two more cases.

Other amenities include an in-unit laundry, central air conditioning and all the benefits of a full-service building, staffed with a 24-hour concierge. Two deeded garage parking spaces are included in the sale. Nearby are a marina and the new luxury Fairmont Battery Wharf hotel.
