A sophisticated urban oasis comes into its own in this AIA New England award winning, one-of-a-kind designer loft.
Condo Fee: $517/mo. includes water + sewer, C.A.M., elevator maintenance, snow + trash removal, master insurance and professional management.
R.E. Taxes: $6,499.20/FYR2012 with residential exemption.
This stunning loft is located downtown in Boston's emerging residential conversion mecca that includes Lafayette Lofts, The Dexter Ditson Building and the newly re-conceived Downtown Crossing Project, now finalized with Millennium Partners.
Converted in 2005 and subsequently customized, this space is one of 4 units in a small-sized, elevator building with high owner-occupancy.
11 foot-high ceilings and oversized windows, front + back, lend this floor-thru loft an exaggerated sense of space + light.
The main space readily accommodates multiple living areas for dining, reading, listening to music, watching TV or simply relaxing.
A modern, custom-designed kitchen is open to the main living space.
A unique palette of materials, including wood, concrete + glass, creates a kitchen workspace as beautiful as it is functional.
Maple wood Europly has been employed to integrate both cabinetry and appliances into a uniform design theme.
The kitchen build-out also includes high-end appliances + fixtures including, Jenn Air, Franke and Dorn Bracht.
A glass panel backsplash complements the clean lines of the kitchen counters.
All counter + center island surfaces have been finished with polished concrete.
Whether it's cocktail hour or breakfast the next morning, the kitchen + adjoining dining area are a natural focal point when entertaining at home.
Integrated into the wall of storage cabinets, extending from the kitchen, is a custom-built Murphy bed.
Simply move the dining table aside and pull down the queen-size Murphy bed... perfect for visiting friends + guests.
Situated in the connecting hallway, between the main space and the bedroom suite, is a built-in 'home office' counter, complete with open shelving and upper storage cabinets.
Looking down the connecting hallway towards the bedroom suite.
A custom-built, translucent slider/wall panel can be closed, providing privacy for the bedroom suite.
The bedroom area is large enough to accommodate alternative sitting + entertainment areas.

Please Note:

Since this photo shoot a second bedroom has been added to the interior build-out of the bedroom suite — see floor plan below.
Space abounds within the bedroom area to have room for a king-size bed with side tables.
The bedroom is complete with an adjoining full bathroom + laundry en suite.
Translucent slider/wall panels separate the bathroom/laundry facilities from the bedroom area.
The Bamboo flooring featured throughout the loft is continued into the master bathroom.
Featured among the custom finishes within the bathroom is a unique zebra-wood vanity with a trough-style double washbasin.
A concrete, deep-soaking tub sits aside the translucent, sandblasted polycarbonate wall panels of the bathroom ensuite.
Ceci n'est pas une toilette.

(With apologies to Réné Magritte)
Also featured within the bathroom is a separate shower stall with back-painted glass paneled stall surround.
Adjacent to the shower stall is a floor-to-ceiling medicine cabinet.
The bathroom build-out features high-end fixtures including, Boffi, Duravit and Agape.
A large twin-door closet houses storage + laundry facilities in the bathroom.
Within the closet is a washer/dryer hook-up for a full-size electric stackable unit and plenty of open shelving for linen.
With the privacy slider/wall panel open, the design of the space provides a clear sight-line from the bedroom to the front of the loft.
2 panel doors, within the connecting hallway between the bedroom suite + the main space, conceal access to a storage closet and a 2nd means of egress, respectively — see floor plan below.
This panel door opens to a large walk-in storage closet.
Featured within the walk-in storage closet are floor-to-ceiling California Closet built-ins.
The building is wired for satellite TV and high-speed Internet access.
The translucent back wall of the master bathroom features a pivoting panel that can be opened for ventilation.
Unique, wall-mounted spigots allow free air-flow of central heating and air conditioning throughout the loft.
A 2nd/guest full bathroom, featuring a back-painted, glass-panelled shower stall, adjoins the main space.
The 2nd bathroom includes a custom-built wooden washbasin + shaving mirror by Agape with Boffi fixtures.
Adjacent to the 2nd/guest bathroom is a wall of storage closets featuring open shelving and closet built-ins.
Foresight has been employed to integrate dimmer-controlled, ceiling-mounted, pendant and feature lighting throughout the loft.
Floor-to-ceiling wood panels open + close to reveal alternative means of egress to the unit and additional storage spaces within the loft.
With the panels closed and concealing both the elevator + stairwell access, the loft transforms into a sealed sanctuary from the pell-mell of modern urban life.
Slide the panel open and the private elevator access to the loft is revealed.
The private, keyed-off elevator provides direct access to the building's lobby below.
The Loft is located on the 3rd floor of 289 Devonshire Street, above the popular lunchtime destination - Viga Café - around the corner from Summer Street.

One (1) designated tandem rental parking space for $350/mo. is available right next door in the building to the left.
