Located in the heart of the Back Bay. With stunning views of the Public Garden and the sweeping Boston skyline – from the Financial District to Fenway Park – this 13-story Art Deco building was originally constructed in 1929. Rebranded in 2009 as “Zero Marlborough”, this boutique condominium building is the result of the conversion of an Emerson College dormitory into 12 luxury residences.
Upon entering the building, the quality of construction is evident. The stunning guest lounge has a modern design aesthetic and features floor-to-ceiling wood paneling, tray ceilings with intricate detailing, a fireplace, and marble floors, all complimented by contemporary furnishings. There is a concierge desk from which building residents enjoy a full range of services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The developer of Zero Marlborough was Sea-Dar Real Estate, a specialist in luxury residential condominium development in Boston. As a result of thoughtful planning, sensitivity to the building’s historic architectural value, and attention to all details of the renovation/conversion process, The Boston Preservation Alliance awarded the project the “2009 Preservation Achievement Award” in the category of Significant Rehabilitation and Restoration.
Notable features of the 8th floor residence include 22 windows and two French doors that provide an abundance of light and stunning views from all principal rooms. The height of this home within the building allows for Public Garden and Marlborough Street views in the foreground and uninterrupted skyline views from the Financial District to Fenway Park. This rare offering of 3,319sf of living space on one floor comprises a spacious living/dining room with two fireplaces, an open plan kitchen and family room, and 4 bedrooms each with an ensuite bathroom. Additional highlights include a climate controlled 1,000+ bottle wine cellar and an exterior valet parking space. Building amenities include a recently renovated owners’ lounge, a fitness room, and storage.
