Welcome to an elegant one bedroom apartment in a building from the late 1800's, located at the very top of the Hill and the center of downtown Boston. This luxury accommodation includes a separate bedroom with a vintage quality queen-sized bed, a spacious open plan kitchen and living area and a bathroom with high-end fittings and custom marble shower.
Beautifully restored original windows that can be raised with one finger, exposed beams and brick and a charming little decorative fireplace capture the time period. Located on the 4th floor rear of the building for a quiet stay and nice afternoon sun. This is a recently100% renovated high-end boutique apartment designed by a master architect and built by master craftsmen.
Named "Luci Bella", this apartment derives its inspiration from the antique Italian bed sconces. With a leaning towards classic Italian design, and an eclectic mix of fixtures and lamps and old windows, we've had fun creating a comfortable and very livable home away from home.
Sleeping: The bedroom has a high quality queen size bed with plush firm Beautyrest mattress; down pillows and nice linens. In the living room, the day bed is an organic bamboo-fiber mattress twin-size for one separate person with the same nice linens and pillows.
Electronics: Excellent high-speed wi-fi in living room and bedroom. Living room has 40" Sony HD television w/ internet connectivity for Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, etc. music and video streaming services. Subscriptions not included but log-in your own or sign-up. Cable is standard plus package (CBS, ABC, CNN, CNBC, ESPN, Showtime, HBO, etc.) DVD/CD Player. A window unit air conditioner in the living room during the summer season, fancy fan year-round. Telephone provided with free U.S. and Canada calling.
Bathroom/Kitchen: Shower (no bathtub) with very high-end rosebud overhead spray and separate hand shower option. Hair-dryer in the linen closet plus all towels. 4 burner gas stove, Bosch silent dishwasher, standing refrigerator/freezer. Microwave, coffee maker, iron & board.
Eco-Green: Aside from a great example of small-space design in a location that promotes walking and public transportation; bed linens and pillows are Eco-certified and cleaning agents, paper supplies and soaps/shampoos are earth-friendly whenever possible. We recycle. Cloth shopping totes are hanging at the door and the electricity is generated from wind. We re-used old wood from the demolition where possible, the insulation layers use old shredded jeans, and we installed a cork sub-layer for softer floors and additional noise mitigation.
Essentials: No smoking, no pets, no parking (ask), sleeps 3 maximum (no exceptions), not suitable for small children. Includes all utilities and furnishings. The owner has written a very detailed manual for the apartment and a personal guide for all services and restaurants in the neighborhood.
Expectations: Please note that Beacon Hill is on a hill in an urban historical zone, so there is a fair amount of walking if staying in this neighborhood. The apartment is a 4th floor walk-up (3 flights of stairs) without an elevator and may not be suitable for all guests.
We have other accommodations in the Beacon Hill neighborhood with different profiles, so just ask.
