Listed: For $2.95 million, a South Boston condo with inescapable skyline views

Buying Luxury South Boston
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room offer stunning views of the Boston skyline. Jack Vatcher

With its staggered, sloping design, the 14-story Macallen building, located at 141 Dorchester Ave. in South Boston, governs the bustling corner of W. Fourth Street and Dorchester Avenue. Lofted high above its low slung neighbors, the building’s pitched roof gives the impression of rolling hills built into the city sky, thanks to several slanted plant beds that sit atop it.

Now there’s a chance to call the building home.

Unit 1002 is on the market for $2,950,000 – though those not ready to buy can rent it furnished for $13,500 a month, or unfurnished for $12,500 a month. The condo, which used to be two separate units, now offers a sprawling 2,801-square-feet on the 10th floor, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bathroom.

Wide-plank wood floors run throughout, and floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and a picture window in the dining room provide panoramic views of the skyline.

A breakfast bar with a wide pass-through to the kitchen connects the common spaces. The sink and an induction cooktop are built into the counter opposite the bar, allowing anyone cooking to take advantage of living room views. Everything is neatly tucked into the paneled walls here, including a double-door, floor-to-ceiling wine refrigerator; a stacked double oven; an appliance garage; and a discreet door to the walk-in pantry.

The striking views continue down the hall in the primary bedroom, which has its own wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and an automated projector (for those ready to look at something other than the cityscape). A barn door opens into the ensuite bathroom, which features two wall-mounted vanities each with a sink, a soaking tub, a walk-in shower, tile floors with radiant heat, and, of course, more floor-to-ceiling windows.

The other bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom, and is home to the unit’s private, covered balcony. Built in drawers, shelves, and wardrobes provide plenty of space for storage.

Currently, the third bedroom serves as an office, with a built-in wine refrigerator for convenient work-from-home happy hours.

In addition to the luxury unit, residents get access to a roof deck with a heated, outdoor pool; a media room; an around-the-clock concierge; and a fitness center located in the Court Square Press building across the street.

The condo also comes with two garage parking spaces, and a monthly $2,631 homeowners association fee that covers hot water, gas, water and sewer, maintenance, landscaping, trash and snow removal, and services for the pool, elevators, and exercise room.
