Black is the new black at this penthouse apartment at 360 Meridian St. in East Boston. The “midnight-themed” apartment (as it’s described in the listing) has black accents throughout: black doors and black tile floors in the bathrooms, black window trim, and a sleek black kitchen.
“The bold black theme, I think it’s just a truly unique design that we don’t see in Boston at all,” said listing agent Ryan Acone of EVO Real Estate Group. “I think that, coupled with the 12.5-foot ceilings, really gives it a grand feel.”
The three-story building underwent significant renovations after it was seriously damaged in a three-alarm fire in 2017. Now the 1,036-square-foot unit is on the market for $699,495.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has herringbone-patterned wood floors throughout the living room and kitchen and in the two bedrooms. Three picture windows and a glass-paned door in the living room face the harbor and allow lots of natural light into the shared living and kitchen space. The door leads to a deck with stairs to the ground level.
In the kitchen, say goodbye to the white countertops and subway tile backsplashes. The double-stacked cabinets, backsplash, pendant lights, honed-granite countertops, and island are all black, creating a chic look highlighted by the stainless steel appliances and modern farmhouse sink.
The bedrooms are down the hall, both with closets (one has a walk-in) and en-suite bathrooms. One bathroom has a standalone shower and a vanity with two sinks, and the other has a shower/bathtub combo and a single-sink vanity. Both have black tile floors and black honed-granite countertops.
