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 the name, Boston pied Ă Terre is eco-friendly and luxurious while simultaneously showing off its historical originations with exposed beams and re-claimed architectural elements. The apartment has very easy access to the street and adjacent patio courtyard. The owners mission is to live with a small footprint but without compromise.
Just 2 minute walk to the Mass. State House and Freedom Trail and an urban Whole Foods grocer; 8 minutes to three subway "T" lines, the Boston Common and Charles Streets boutique shops and fine dining. 15 minute walk you will reach Faneuil Hall, Newbury Street, the North End, Theatre District and TD Garden for events.
The kitchen is very well appointed with beautiful slate counters, polished nickel fixtures, deep sink w/disposal, Miele dishwasher, Delonghi toaster oven, 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 polished nickel fixtures and original cross-hatch beams overhead.
