Located in historic 1847 brick bowfront brownstone, this unique artist-owned property features original details like exposed brick, hardwood floors, working fireplace w/ original marble mantle...and perhaps the very best views of the harbor and city. Filled with light and original art works--many created by the owner--the apartment has 2 levels including living room, dining room, fully stocked kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, additional 1/2 bath. Basic cable and wireless Internet included, laundry in building. Oversized deck is equipped with a grill and is wonderful for entertaining as you watch the sailboats glide by. Absolutely the best place in the city to view Boston's spectacular New Year's fireworks in the harbor!!! The property is in Jeffries Point--a quiet neighborhood with lovely parks but incredibly convenient to all Boston has to offer! Walk to the T and you are one stop from the heart of the city. Convenient to interstates 90 and 93.
CLOSE TO SO MUCH: Driving, you are minutes from everything...walking, you are literally 20 minutes or less from downtown....from the house go down the hill to our local Blue Line Maverick Square T station and take the train inbound to the Aquarium Blue Line T station (only one stop or 5 minutes....see MBTA.com)-- take a whale watching trip, enjoy a harbor cruise, catch the ferry to Provincetown, see the Aquarium and IMAX theatre, walk the Freedom Trail, visit the USS Constitution/Charlestown Navy Yard, eat at Legal Sea Food or the Chart House, visit the quaint old-world charm of Boston's North End with all of its wonderful Italian eateries, see the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House!
Continue inbound on the T to see the Public Garden, Copley Square, Newbury Street. If your destination is Fenway Park you can visit like the locals do---hop the train to Kenmore Square and then follow the Fenway Faithful to the game....or ride on a few more stops to Symphony Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts
