It is not every day that you come across the opportunity to purchase a generously sized single-family home that blends historic detail with 21st-century living in Boston — but that is exactly what you find in this Back Bay classic.

Expertly renovated, this 1869-built home beckons with architectural charm and craftsmanship that cannot be replicated today. Dramatically high ceilings, medallions, trim, and marble fireplaces recall an elegant Boston past as an extraordinary floorplan makes brilliant use of its 3,998 square feet. Tailor-made for modern-day entertaining, the double parlor living room practically ushers guests inside with wet bar and powder room. A formal dining room opens to a gourmet eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances and a fireplace. Also on the entry level, an office with fireplace and half bath offers the perfect work-from-home arrangement. A spacious primary suite with a fireplace, lovely bay window, ensuite bath and a spacious dressing room awaits on the third level. Two other spacious bedrooms and a full bath also take their place on this floor. From here, you’ll want to take in the sweeping city and river views from the private roof deck overlooking some of Back Bay’s most stunning architectural masterpieces. The lower floor features the fourth bedroom with kitchenette and ensuite bath and a spacious family room — ideal for an in-law, long-term guest or staff. A door leads to a brick landscaped patio and two parking spaces.

Between the rare collection of outdoor spaces to the sought-after parking and past-meets-present ambiance, this prime residence offers a refined idea of city living.
