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.

Prioritize Real Estate “Must Haves” To Ease Your Home Search

Intercontinental DoormanWith over 150 condominium units available in the North End and Waterfront, searching for the perfect home can be very time consuming.  One way to narrow your search is to do your homework up front.

Focusing in on where you want to live, what neighborhood in the city, should be your first priority.  Once you have established where, determine your price range, then consider making a list, and prioritize the criteria for your ideal unit.

When inquiring about a property or working with a real estate consultant, be sure to share this list with them to save you the time of trekking to units that just will not work for you.  Think about what you are looking for in a building, in addition to the unit, because although you can renovate your unit, you cannot alter the building.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

1.  Do you want a full service building with a concierge, or will a building with a simple security buzzer system work for you?

2.  Do you want a pet friendly building, or are you deathly allergic to dogs and want to be sure you won’t run into one in the lobby?

3.  Is private outdoor space a priority; a common roofdeck; or no outside space at all.

4.  Do you need an elevator?  If not, how many flights of stairs are you willing to climb?

5.  Unit placement in the building is also an important consideration.

6.  Are you willing to renovate or make upgrades to a unit, or would you prefer that be done for you.

7.  Consider the list of unit amenities that you cannot live without:  air conditioning, hardwood floors, large closets, additional storage space.

Keep in mind, the “Ideal” unit in the “Perfect” building may not exist in your price point.  However, by knowing what is important to you, the list of available properties can more easily be narrowed to fit your needs.

You can use our Keyword Search Tool in the ‘Advanced Search Options’ under the MLS Property Search on our website to help you narrow down your selection.  Search for ‘pet friendly’ or ‘roof deck’ or ‘concierge’, whatever amenity you’re interested in.  You can even save your favorite listings or search criteria if you sign up for a free user account!
