Amongst the many historic townhomes that Boston’s South End is so famous for lies a truly unique alternative. After years of meticulous restoration and innovation, six captivating townhouse style homes have transformed this once revered pudding stone church into a symbol of style and luxury.
The two remaining residences, each measuring over 4,500 square feet on two levels, are lessons in design and proportion designed by Hendren Associates. Contrasting the original exposed interior stonewalls are perfectly proportioned rooms of the highest quality with contemporary finishes and state-of-the-art systems. Each masterfully crafted Ciuffo-designed custom kitchen is a lesson in quality and taste as well as the ultimate in cooking technology. Contained within the soaring 13-foot ceilings are the finishes and details seldom found outside of a custom build. 8-inch wide European white oak and 8-foot tall doors thoughtfully continue the grand scale. The bathrooms contain the finest quality tile and hardware in a carefully chosen organic palette complimenting the original stone details. Original architectural details were captured and retained, masterfully blending with the modern design aesthetic.
Apparent throughout are quality materials such as triple glazed steel casement windows, sound lined HVAC ducts, 4 zone hydronic heating and sound proofing insulation – all painstakingly fitted to the highest standards. The unit pictured here includes 4+ bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, as well as separate living, dining, family and laundry rooms. This unit also includes over 2,500 square feet of professionally landscaped gardens and terraces. Both units include two oversized garage parking spaces with direct garage access to the homes. Each is priced at $4,750,000.
Boston’s furniture boutique Molteni&C Dada, a part of Casa Design Group, curators of the finest European furnishings brought the space to life by virtually staging one of the homes. The showroom design experts thoughtfully selected furniture to complement the homes’ natural beauty. A testament to the ageless appeal of great design, Molteni&C’s modern classics look right at home in this former Gothic church. The space’s soaring ceilings, windows, and exposed stone have the ideal balance in refined details and craftsmanship of these timeless pieces.
