Introducing The Penthouse at 185 Marlborough - a magnificent home ideally located on the sunny-side of Marlborough Street in an extra wide brownstone. Built by famed Boston architects Peabody & Stearns for merchant Edward Sturgis Grew and Annie Crawford Grew and later expertly converted into five private residences.
The Penthouse at 185 is a sophisticated and inviting turn-key home offered to buyers with all existing furniture and furnishings. With over 2200 square feet of floor-through living accented by bespoke designer details and complimentary luxury finishes, this residence has it all.
The direct elevator whisks you to the penthouse level with ease and opens into the gracious foyer. The great room is the heart of the home with 13.5 ft beamed ceilings and Back Bay views. Custom Venetian Plaster adorns the walls, and a gas fireplace with grand mantle, intricate millwork, and crown moulding complete the space.
The adjacent dining area with chandelier can seat an intimate group or cater to a crowd, and transitions beautifully to the gourmet kitchen. The welcoming kitchen features ample cabinetry with under-mount lighting, honed granite counters, and is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and wine fridge. The front facing den/bedroom with pocket doors is highlighted by a wall of custom built-ins and houses a sleek, paneled entertainment center.
Gorgeous hardwood floors, woodwork and wainscoting lead to a quiet bedroom wing. The primary king-sized suite is a serene escape complete with a sumptuous marble bathroom with abundant cabinetry, dual vanities, soaking tub and spa glass shower. The generous second bedroom with thoughtful lighting and tray ceiling includes a walk-in closet and ensuite full bathroom. A powder room, in-unit laundry, and numerous closets flank the hallways for additional storage.
Interior stairs lead to the exclusive walk-out roof deck preceded by a wet bar and fridge, perfect for entertaining or dining al fresco. The show-stopping deck offers unparalleled 360 degree views. Gardeners rejoice - the plants and flowers are nurtured year-round by a local specialist. Direct access to one full parking space with radiant heat. Central a/c and professional management round out this rare and desirable home.
