Stunning triplex in Boston’s Back Bay is a spectacular sale
At the corner of Marlborough and Dartmouth streets in the Back Bay at 163 Marlborough St. stands the grand Cushing-Endicott House, which now comprises five luxurious condominiums.
The largest residence, Units 2/4, is elegant, for when the 1871 house was converted to condos in 1985, much of the interior design reflecting Boston’s Gilded Age was preserved.
Tracy Campion of Campion and Company Fine Real Estate was the listing broker for this 4,856-square-foot triplex, and William Montero of the Warren Residential Group was the selling broker. Its selling price was $4.418 million.
The nine-room home includes five fireplaces, four-plus bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths.
One of the most stunning features is the reception hall one encounters stepping through the private entry. A soaring cove ceiling, raised paneling and a huge fireplace enhance the intricate staircase that occupies the entire rear wall.
The main entertaining spaces are on the second level, linked by a columned stair hall that serves as an art gallery. At the right is a family room, richly paneled, with a grand fireplace and a lounge-like bar. A compact kitchen with high-end appliances is tucked into a corner.
The formal dining room lies between the family room and living room. Painted white, the room has exquisite crown moldings, a white marble fireplace and an oak parquet floor.
Adjacent to this room is the spacious living room, which was the original library and still has the built-in barrister bookcases. The main feature in this room is a huge fireplace with a carved oak mantelpiece featuring lion’s heads and an elaborate mirror.
The third level boasts the four bedrooms and baths. The master bedroom includes a fireplace, a spacious walk-in closet/dressing room and an en suite Carrara marble bath with radiant heat.
Of the three other bedrooms, one has a marble fireplace and an en suite bath. Another has an en suite bath while the third bedroom has its own bath outside the room.
Two parking spaces were included in the sale.
