Tastefully updated with understated elegance, this timeless fifth-floor home resides in an impressive 1925 Georgian Revival building on Commonwealth Avenue in historic Back Bay, only 2 blocks from the landmark Public Garden. Filled with natural light from 3 exposures, the well-planned layout of 2,030± square feet includes 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths plus an office, which could be converted into a third bedroom. Classic moldings and hardwood floors add to the warm atmosphere. Views overlook Clarendon Park to the grand tree-lined promenade and skyline. Entered from the large foyer, which serves as a comfortable sitting room, the spacious corner living room and dining room/library are both appointed with beautiful fireplaces and custom built-in bookcases. Butler’s pantry connects to gourmet kitchen with glass-front cabinetry, hardwood counters, and stainless steel appliances. Inviting master suite captures scenic park view. Desirable, newly renovated building with on-site superintendent.
