407 – 409 Shawmut Ave
The Royal is at the corner of Blackstone Square in the South End of Boston. The building that houses the luxury condos, was a row house constructed in brick, with five stories. The house and adjacent building were constructed during the 19th century. The two buildings have 12 condos that have from one to three bedrooms with a garage for residential parking that can accommodate six cars. The condos range in price from $575,000 to $2,400,000.
The two structures constructed of brick and limestone have been totally renovated. Both buildings have new heating systems, air conditioning and electrical wiring. Updated hardwood floors have been installed and the 12 units have new appliances including a range and refrigerator, disposal, dishwasher, wall oven, and washer and dryer. New, insulated windows have been installed and repairs to the masonry have been completed. Each of the condos has individual controls for heating and air conditioning. The buildings have a fresh, contemporary appearance and are landscaped. The main lobby has been updated, and residents enjoy decks on the roof.
The open living area has a curved wall with large, bay windows in the living room. High ceilings with recessed lights and a built-in fireplace complete the living room that opens into an oversized, gourmet kitchen with floor to ceiling cabinets and drawer space in the galley-style area. The kitchen has a built-in wall oven and microwave. The center island has seating and a sink at one end.
An en-suite bath with a large tub for soaking, a double vanity with two sinks and mirrors are part of your master bedroom. An adjacent closet offers space for linens, towels, and storage. The bath has soft, slate walls and coordinating floor tile. The condo association at The Royal covers water, trash removal, master insurance, and elevators. TV monitors serve as a security system.
The Royal is a Boutique Luxury Building in South End
The development known as The Royal is located in the South End neighborhood of Boston. It presents itself in the form of a luxury boutique building with condos that will please even the ones with discerning tastes. The property is right in the heart of the neighborhood at 407 to 409 Shawmut Avenue and has been around since its construction in 2014.
The Royal combines two brownstone buildings that are quite similar to those located in New York City. Nevertheless, these buildings have a charm of their own and the appeal is simply undeniable. The residences here have an unmistakable quality, thanks to the contemporary design. The units have sizes that range from 900 square feet for the one-bed condos while the penthouses have at least 2,300 square feet of space. These penthouses are truly a rare opportunity for the people to live in a real luxury condo as they come with spectacular views, spacious master bedrooms, and more.
There are also upper floor units where the residents can enjoy direct access to the elevator right to their condos. The living rooms have fireplaces and space for study. You can also transform the additional space to a home office or even for storage if you like. These units also boast high ceilings and huge windows where you can view the city and its skyline. There are also dressing rooms that are as private as you can imagine.
There is a marble kitchen and a huge master bathroom that will certainly show the difference when bathing at a luxury bathroom. The windows at the master suite will provide views of the Franklin Square or the Blackstone.
Different Condos for Different Needs
If you are searching for a spacious condo for you and your family, you will find it here at The Royal. It mostly has two and three beds where the units measure at least 1,600 to 2,300 square feet. There are also one bedroom units, which are of course smaller than the penthouses and the two to three bed condos but they are more affordable. Plus, most of the available units have one bedroom.
Although the development is quite new compared to the other residential buildings in the area, the property maintains the original character of the neighborhood. South End is known for the tidal flats, which were quite popular in the mid-1800s. Today, it has become a place for wealthy businessmen and merchants. There are large Victorian houses and townhouses in this place and the surrounding squares for the parks make it an ideal area for trading.
For this reason, it is easy to find restaurants that range from fine to casual dining. There are also fast food chains here, along with shopping centers to choose from. Retail stores are scattered all over the area so you can just take a short walk from the building and you will immediately discover these nearby establishments.
Whether you want to live in a one, two, or three-bed unit at The Royal, you should hurry because the opportunity does not last long. Most of the condos are already sold so you should grab the deal if you find one in this prime location in the city.
