Welcome to an adorable ground floor studio apartment, located in an 1860s building at the very top of the Hill and the center of downtown Boston. This true to name, Boston pied à Terre is eco-friendly and luxurious and simultaneously shows off its historical origins with exposed beams and re-claimed architectural elements. The studio has very easy access to the street and adjacent patio. The owner’s mission is to live with a small footprint but without compromise.
Aside from a great example of small-space design in a location that promotes walking and public transportation; bed linens are eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging in the closet and the electricity is generated from wind. (Scroll to bottom for more apartment details.
Basics:: The kitchen is very well appointed with beautiful slate counters, classic European fixtures, deep sink w/disposal, Miele dishwasher, gas range/oven and full-sized refrigerator. The bed is a Beauty-Rest plush-firm queen with down pillows and sateen sheets. The bathroom has full-sized tub and shower with high-end easy-to-usel fixtures and original cross-hatch beams overhead. Washer/dryer is in the hall around the corner. Place to keep bike.
Essentials:: No smoking, no pets, no parking (ask), sleeps 2 maximum, no extra space even for children. Includes all utilities and furnishings, ground floor, direct access patio. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the apartment and for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.
Expectations: Please note that Beacon Hill is on a hill, so there is a fair amount of walking if staying in this neighborhood. Also note that the bed is higher than a normal bed, as the dresser drawers are built underneath. We provide a small stepping stool if required, but this extra height may not be suitable for all guests.
We have other accommodations in the neighborhood with different profiles, so just ask. We've been successfully renting high-quality furnished apartments for over 5 years.
