Penthouses for Every Style and Budget!

There is nothing that screams luxury living more than an address with a Penthouse unit. Living high above the city, with views that rival a bird, in units equipped with higher ceilings, upgraded finishes and, of course, all sorts of fun perks! Those perks can range from complimentary gym memberships, to valet parking, to private use of luxury cars so they certainly can be enticing, but not every Penthouse means the top of the top! Some buildings create their Penthouse units throughout the top several floors so make sure you double check if your top priority is no footsteps above you! We are constantly watching the city boom with new developments, so let’s take an insiders look at these ultra luxurious homes!

The Seaport area, which has been completely transformed over the last several years from the land of parking lots to a sea of skyscrapers, many of them residential. Pier 4, opening this spring, has paid special attention to their penthouse units. Though the building stands only 9 floors high, most units have completely unobstructed views of the harbor, and their penthouses capitalize on these incredible views with large private roof decks. The development team ensure that these spaces were truly an extension of the unit and equipped all with outdoor kitchens. Inside these units boast top of the line appliances, marble waterfall islands, and another private outdoor space to fully enjoy those views and salty sea air!

Of course if the birds eye view is what you’re looking for, Penthouse 2B located in the Ritz Carlton Residences may be more your speed. This duplex unit, freshly renovated, contains 4,300 square feet of living space on the 40th floor of 2 Avery Street, with views of Boston Common, the Charles River and the Harbor. Beyond its smart home system, wood burning fireplace, and more sunlight than one could imagine, this unique home also includes a 1,200 square foot private terrace -combining the very best of both worlds.

Perhaps you’re looking for that luxurious feel but with the old Boston charm we’re known for? 21 Beaver Place in Beacon Hill is currently offering their penthouse unit, placed on the 4th floor of this quintessential townhome. Though the home has kept many of its original features, including hardwood floors, and 6 fireplaces, it also combines the new amenities like an elevator access to all floors, a roof terrace including its own pool, and 4 parking spaces! A true masterpiece combining the very best of Boston.

The Ink Block is one of the hottest addresses in the South End, with this new community showcasing its own Whole Foods, boutique fitness studios and a variety of incredible restaurants and right in the middle of it sits the Siena building. Here, on the 9th floor, with 11’ ceilings, is Penthouse unit 2. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two separate private use terraces set apart this incredible home. Walls of windows that showcase views in two directions, and the open concept floor plan makes this the perfect Penthouse for the entertainer!

Here’s the thing though- a Penthouse doesn’t always have to be designated with that prestigious PH on the door, you can make your very own Penthouse all over this city in a variety of top floor units! Take 94 Conwell Ave in Somerville: priced at a cool $619,000.00 this 885 square foot top floor beauty boasts a fully updated kitchen, NEST technology, TWO outdoor spaces and two garage parking spaces!

How about water views? 64 Percival St in Dorchester, spanning over 1000 square feet, a private deck perfect to watch the summer sails, and deeded roof rights to further enhance those views all priced under $500,000!

No matter your price point there-are incredible Penthouse units throughout the city. Your home is absolutely the place to find a true respite from the day- to ensure that every need and desire is taken care of. If living on top of the world is your thing -Boston’s definitely got you covered in every area and style!
