Boston, world renowned in bioengineering, education, finance, healthcare and technology, is frequently ranked as one of the top five places to live in America. The Back Bay is one of the city’s premier neighborhoods. Number 280 Beacon Street has an outstanding location on both the “sunny” and “water” side of the street. Homes in this location, between Dartmouth Street and Exeter Street, enjoy some of the finest views of the Charles River, the lagoon and the Esplanade. This location is close to internationally renowned Newbury Street with its boutique shopping and art galleries, the historic Boston Public Garden, Boston Common, and Beacon Hill. Many of the city’s finest restaurants are within a few blocks of the property. Public transportation and major highways are within easy reach.
Constructed circa 1930, 280 Beacon Street is a fine example of pre-war architecture in Boston. The building has 33 residences, an elegant lobby and an elevator. Unit owners have access to a large common roof deck with spectacular 360 views that stretch up and down the Charles River, over to Cambridge and across the Back Bay skyline. Amenities offered in the building include exterior parking (for which occasionally there may be a waiting list – consult with listing agent), a common laundry (there is also an in-unit washing machine and dryer) and individual storage areas. The building is professionally managed and has the benefit of an on-site superintendent to ensure the smooth operation of the building and its amenities.
Residence 34 has the most coveted floor plan in the building – overlooking the Charles River and on a corner with multiple windows and great light. It is also worth noting that the opportunity to purchase this floor plan is rare. According to the MLS, the last unit with this floor plan sold in 2008.
