Welcome to the Studio, where sustainable design dances with elegance and exquisite detail in this lovingly handcrafted haven in the heart of Beacon Hill. The Studio represents the owners' (a husband-and-wife design team) philosophy of walking softly on the earth while living passionately and luxuriously -yet, without excess or waste....the truest measure of "being green"!!!

Top 4th floor apartment has large sunny windows on all sides. Facing distant rooftops and the sky, you'll wake to birdsong and quietude in your Queen size mahogany custom built-in "window bed" even tho you're in the heart of the city. Climb the stairs to your private plant filled roofdeck overlooking the Charles River....Pick some organic salad greens and tomatoes for an al fresco luncheon; Meditate, do yoga or simply sit and be present for the sun's rising or setting.

The Studio is beautifully appointed with Italian sheets, down pillows & comforter, fully equipped kitchen with restored vintage gas cooking stove, Miele dishwasher, full size (!) washer/dryer, tiled windowed bath & an eclectic library and music collection... Vermont Castings gas stove takes the chill off cool nights.

Practical Bits: 5-10 minutes' walk to Boston's "Red or Green Subway Lines," Charles Street fine dining, boutiques, flower shops, chocolatier, pastry shops, wine & liquor stores, etc; 10 minutes' walk through Beacon Hill to the new Whole Foods grocery store; 20 minutes' walk through the Boston Common & Public Garden to the shops on Newbury Street. Support our local organic farmers during the Summer when the Farmer's Markets come to Copley Square & Government Center twice weekly!

... utterly magical. I really didn�t want to leave ... and I could be happy there for very long stretches of time, I fear
It�s one of the quirkiest, loveliest and most charming little spots on the face of this earth. And it's imbibed with feelings of good cheer and warmth, felt immediately upon arrival, and at first I thought it was because so many of your personal things were blessing the place, and then I read thru the guestbook and I realized it's really because there have been Sooo many guests who passed thru, felt the same, and left a little of their happiness & delight behind, you can feel ALL OF IT, can't you?
and we were there 2 days before we noticed that the place is entirely (and very cozily) heated thru ambient heat, passive solar and that charming little stove!! And as a returning beacon hill�er � it's just the fantasy beacon hill flat, couldn�t be more spot on if it were a movie set!
Your design is genius � and I too am a fan of small spaces...
So, lastly let me say that we must be kindred spirits, I found all my favorite books on your bookshelves, and my favorite music in your CD library. We enjoyed the Sarah Brightman, Carole King, Sondheim and Cole Porter tracts all week, and I had a cloistered afternoon on Friday by the fire rereading Rilke�s Letters to a Young Poet � start to finish....
