Home of the Week Luxury
206 Beacon St. Unit 1
206 Beacon St. Unit 1 Jack Vatcher and Stager / Sean Splading Design

Embellishing the ceiling of the great room in this Back Bay parlor duplex is a 17th century Venetian oil painting. Relax in front of a gas fireplace in the spacious living and dining room with the artwork overhead, or step out through glass doors onto a large rear deck with a view of the Charles River on the waterside of Beacon Street.

206 Beacon St. Unit 1 is listed for $2,199,000 by Monic D’ Alcantara, of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. The unit offers three beds, two full baths, and one half bath. The lower level has the master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and a washer and dryer.

The kitchen maximizes space with a wall oven, as well as a breakfast bar, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator. Additional details include hardwood floors, updated granite countertops, and an elaborate tile backsplash. 

Directly outside the front door is a tandem parking space, but driving may not be necessary considering close proximity to the Boston Common and shopping on Newbury Street.
