Union Wharf, an old granite shoe-imports warehouse built in 1847 by shipping merchant John L. Gardner and later operated as a Boston-to- Maine steamship terminal, was renovated and expanded into 89 residential and commercial condominiums in 1977. Now you can reap the full benefit of its Boston Waterfront history, culture and location in a 2,429-square-foot penthouse unit for sale at $3.25 million.
Wide space, wide views
Feast your eyes on the sweeping panorama encompassing the calm waters and the busy city when you step into the spacious living-dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple skylights bring in the sun, sea, sky and city. High beamed ceilings and a fireplace add depth and warmth to the experience.
The kitchen is open to the living-dining space, brightened by the skylights, and appointed with light granite counters and custom white cabinetry, for a brighter, airier cooking experience than the average corridor kitchen. State-of-the-art appliances include a smooth-top electric cooktop in the island counter bar and a set of convection/microwave wall ovens.
In addition to two baths and a wood-burning stove, the master suite boasts a private deck with the most comprehensive sea-and-city view you’ll ever experience, stretching from Boston Harbor’s blue waters to the soaring skyscrapers of the Financial District to the narrow streets of the North End. The guest suite also has a private deck and marble bath. Deeded parking, guest parking and marina slips are available for the unit.
Those views make it clear what’s near you. Steps away from Union Wharf are shopping and dining at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the New England Aquarium, the North End‘s exotic Italian restaurants and cafés, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the Financial District, water taxi service to Logan Airport and the Harbor Islands, and much more.
