175 Marlborough St #2

Like many other Sundays, I spent the afternoon touring open houses. There were a total of 17 today. I made it to five of them. There’s a really good selection out there right now, but one really stood out. 175 Marlborough Unit 2. The listing agent is Ryan Clunan (617 686 4966 rclunan@campionre.com) from Campion and Co. It’s a five bedroom, three full and two half bathroom triplex with a roofdeck, outdoor space and a tandem parking spot. The building itself has only three units. The asking price is $4,999,000 for 4,171sq ft of space. Taxes are $55,472 and the condo fee is $1,830/mo and includes heat and water.

Now that that’s out of the way, here are the photos. The layout was really interesting with interiors windows and balconies, along with several staircases. At the end of the day, it’s a large condo with a single family feel.

I love this atrium. South facing. The brass looks well maintained.

I’m a big fan of the kitchen. No marble countertops. Full size sub, plus I noticed some drawer refrigerators.

There’s a pretty good sized patio off the kitchen.

This condo had a really interesting feel to it. The rooms were compartmentalized but everything was open. You’ll see when you scroll down, the center of the unit is pretty much hollow.

When I was in the unit, I counted four bedrooms. I think this was the fifth. High ceilings, big windows and built ins. My only complaint is the lack of working fireplace.

This walkway/balcony connects the master bedroom with the study.

Again, that great southern exposure.

I’m not really a bath guy, but I could definitely see myself having a soak to that view, if I lived there.

The top floor has a cozy family room, with even more built ins-not pictured.

And to top it off, there’s a private roof deck. So that makes 2 outdoor spaces. Oh, and did I mention it includes parking too? I think I did.
