Commonwealth Ave, Estate of the Day
After my colleague Jared Paul Stern mentioned Boston's most expensive real estate listing, I thought it might be fun to check out another pricey home in the city. October always makes me long for Boston and crisp fall days. Walking up Commonwealth Avenue on a sunny cool autumn day, one can't help but admire the stately townhomes that line the grandest part of this thoroughfare. This Beaux Arts home was built in the mid 1800s and renovated and combined into one gorgeous single family home in 2005. The home is five levels and includes three private decks and an impressive five parking spaces, two in garage parking spaces which occupy the garden level and three outdoor spaces.
The home has arched glass windows and beautiful marble and stone inlaid floors. The parlor reception room has arch bay windows facing the street with 15 foot ceilings and 12 foot pocket doors and the mahogany wainscoting billiards room / library is an elegant place to enjoy cocktails and conversation after dinner. The gourmet kitchen has a 15 foot granite island and a gorgeous handmade La Cornue range. The master bedroom suite has a fireplaces and two large wallk-in closets, one which is currently in use as a gym and a huge onyx / marble bath with a Jacuzzi, steam shower, double vanity and an intricately designed floor with radiant heat. On another level, a private three bedroom suite includes a formal and an informal living room or study and full kitchen, wet bar and lounge. The den leads to a deck with a Jacuzzi. This home is listed at $11.95 million.
