There's very little schlep to living in a sixth floor condo in the One Charles building. After all, the asking price of $2.1 million should make that perfectly clear. This centrally located ivory tower on South Charles Street is just about in the middle of a circle that includes the Theatre District, the Back Bay, Downtown Crossing and Beacon Hill.
"It's close walking distance to all things Boston has to offer," says the listing agent William Raye of Engel & Volkers Boston. "There's all the shopping, restaurants, the theaters. The Financial District, Beacon Hill and the South End are close by."
But for those longer trips, car owners needn't worry about parking: "The price includes two parking spaces," says Raye.
One Charles, which was built in 2004 by Millennium Partners (who also built the Ritz Carlton nearby), is a full-service elevator building, which means there's a 24-hour concierge, a doorman and a porter. The common areas include a library, media room, conference room and fitness center.
This home is a spacious corner unit with marble entry, herringbone patterned cherry floors and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Boston Common. Surprisingly, the condo comes fully furnished --so even that's taken care of.
"The owners had custom built-ins made for this unit, and all the furnishings were purchased specifically for the space," says Raye. "It fits together perfectly."
