Charlesbank Apartment Homes
120 Pleasant St
Completed in 2012, the building that is home to the Charlesbank apartments is a freshly constructed wonder. Combining the desirable elements of 'old-school' living with those of modern day living, this development is a pure work of art. A total of forty-four apartments are housed within the walls of the four-story building. Each unit of the pet-friendly and soon-to-be smoke free facility is a design masterpiece. Of course, beauty isn't the only aspect this location has to offer - though it is often a favorite.
The breathtaking beauty of the units are apparent as soon as the door is opened. The eloquent kitchen is any chef's paradise, providing major appliances such as the stainless steel refrigerator, oven, microwave, and even dishwasher. The hardwood floors and custom cabinetry flow well with the gorgeous granite that tops the counter space. Dangling pendant lights are positioned throughout the units, providing an unbeatable balance of electric light and natural light - which gleams through the large windows. Also often a favorite element: In-unit washer/dryer sets are provided for residents' convenience. The flawlessly constructed bathrooms include a pearl-white theme, white tile floor with a wonderfully contrasting black granite countertop, and standing shower with sliding glass doors. These cable-ready apartments are available in one- and two-bedroom, as well as the studio option. With seven individual floor plans to choose from, the ideal home is just a few decisions away.
In addition to the awe-inspiring interior features, the amenities offered at this development are 'too good to be true'. Safety and security are top priorities, and this controlled access building is equipped with a visual and voice intercom system. And while there is off-site and street parking available, residents also have the opportunity to have (for a small fee) a garage parking space. With easy, immediate access to the Charles River and Charles River bike path, the bike and kayak racks are a handy feature. Also offering a lovely barbeque station, this location is certainly brag-worthy. In addition to the countless popular features, the Charlesbank apartment homes are situated in an unbeatable position: Right in the middle of outdoors living and living in the lap of luxury.

Elegant and modern, it contains granite counters, wooden cabinets, and professional-level appliances. The kitchen has a breakfast bar that enables food preparation and has room in the back for setting up a pair of high-backed chairs or bar stools for meals.

The sizeable dining room, conveniently next to the kitchen, is ready for a personalized finish with neutral tones and wooden flooring. The dining room can easily hold a full-size table, and there is still room left over for additional furnishings like a china cabinet or a decorative side table and a potted plant. Around the corner from the dining room is a living room that is lit by two tall windows. Like the dining room, the living room has a neutral color scheme and wooden floors, which opens the door to many types of designs and styles.

The bedroom is down the hall from the full bath, which has an attractive vanity and a stall shower.
