About S. D. Berg

Retired legal professional and actor now involved with RE Developement bought this unit when in Law School and before going overseas to study in Lund, Sweden. I was renting this unit from a parent of a fellow law school student who had graduated. When I bought it and gutted it, I had 407 bags of garbage that had to be individually removed and discovered some very interesting items hidden in the walls. This unit was once part of a single family home built in 1891. The renovations were all done by myself.

S. D. Berg purchased this condo in 2008

Why S. D. Berg chose Boston

I grew up in the Boston area and when the previous owner said he was buying a building in NYC and needed cash, I quickly called in all my loans to friends and scrambled to have cash for the seller in 12 days. I remember counting out several thousands of dollars with quarter rolls, crumpled up $2 bills and plenty of $20 bills on the desk of the attorney handling the sale.

What makes this condo unique

I did some research of the history of this place and found that the exposed brick and views are quite beautiful and full of history. Place was originally a single family home built in 1891. I surrounded the condo with New England artifacts and art, all that tell a brief hostory of Boston from an original turn of the century subway sign from the oldest subway system in the USA to old porcelain street signs and license plates from the early days of Transportation.

Great property in prime Back Bay location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo for five days and it was PERFECT. The location cannot be beat. Anything you need is right around the corner at the friendly neighborhood market or CVS. The owner was very attentive. I couldn't figure out the TV and he was over in 15 minutes to show me what I needed to do. The kitchen has all brand new appliances and is immaculate (and I kept it that way by not cooking!) However, if you want to cook, everything you need is there. There is also and iron and ironing board, blow dryer and all the comforts from home. Additionally, there is a ton of closet space and drawer space. I would not hesitate for a moment to come back to this very same property and I hope to in the future!

Great Back Bay Stay in Boston

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property in August of 2012 and found it impeccable. The location was excellent, the furnishings the and property were all as described, clean and in perfect order. Our host, Stewart, could not have been more helpful in arranging airport transportation and providing great tips on local eateries and other nearby sights. We took advantage of everything the neighborhood had to offer – walking to Newbury Street, Fenway Park, downtown shopping, and the T Stations for quick and inexpensive transportation anywhere in the city. The unit was plenty comfortable for four – we were two adults and two children. Perfect convenience and great value compared to hotels in the area – the ability to use the kitchen and laundry helped keep things relaxed and comfortable. Terrific trip, great city, and great place to stay. We would definitely rent this place again.

Spring in Boston

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect for our time in Boston. The apartment is close to everything (averaging 10 to 15 mins) either walking or with the subway including: Fenway, Quincy market, Harvard, MIT, HMS, Mass General, Liberty trail, Copley Square, Hynes convention center, shops and restaurants. Located on beautiful Commonwealth Avenue; the entire street was in bloom with cherry trees and magnolias it was just gorgeous. The place includes a ‘chefs kithcen’ including a Viking range perfect for entertaining a small group. All this, in one of the coolest neighborhoods of Boston; we wanted to stay longer…

Excellent Location close to Hynes & ANA show

  • 5 of 5

We were in town displaying at the coin expo and had a great stay at Stewart's condo. He was most hospitable and advised us on great restaurants, parking and steered us in the right direction when it came to safekeeping some items. We will come back to visit again. Especially liked the instant hot water for tea, the extra touches upon arrival and the ease it was to get comfortable with his great big TV and wireless internet.

Enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, well equipped apartment recently.

A hotel room for 2 weeks would have been suffocating. Enjoyed the walks to Boston common and beyond, and also along the river.

Won't miss the traffic noise from Comm' Ave' or the heavy footed upstairs neighbour. Be aware of paypal charges if this is your chosen method of payment.
