Not Your Typical North End Townhouse

55 Hull #1_12

Enjoy living in a peaceful historic neighborhood, while having the convenience of being minutes away from the citys bustling Downtown. This contemporary European renovation in the heart of Bostons North End offers only two boutique-style residences, both with two sleek bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. The lavish kitchens are highlighted by custom-designed Italian cabinets, white quartz countertops, and stainless Samsung appliances. The open-floor plan of both homes naturally flows from the kitchens to the sun-drenched dining areas. Each home has direct access to private outdoor space that allows for enjoying summer breezes and restoring connections to nature.

Boston'sNorth Endis a diners Mecca, with countless high-rated Italian restaurantsand bakeries in walking distance from its historical homes and buildingsfrom the Old North Church to the famed Skinny House. This waterfront community has been one of Bostons quintessential neighborhoods since the first residents settled the area in 1630. Today, the neighborhood is characterized by narrow streets, skinny four-story walkups, and a fierce pride in itself.

One of these houses is not like the others. Behold the newly constructed two-family home at 55 Hull Street: acontemporary composition of clean lines and glass.The place sticks out like a sore thumb, butit somehow works. Sure,its facade looks a bit different from the surrounding brick abodes, but thats part of its charm.The narrow rowhouse is in line with the character of the neighborhood while still flauntingsome personality.

Inside, the European-style units offer kitchens outfitted with white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and two-toned cabinets from Italian maker Arrital. Unlike the North Ends typical cramped, agingcondos, these units are open and airy, thanks to abundant natural light. Each two-bedroom also comes with its own private outdoor space. As an added bonus, its just down the street from theSkinny House, aquirky landmarkbuilt out of spite.
