This unit just came on the market.  It is two bedrooms, two full baths, with close to 2000 square feet of living space and two balconies.  One of the balconies, the one that can be see in the pic here, is right off of the master bedroom.  Let me know if this unit is of interest to you and I’ll schedule a showing.  I can be reached at michael.breer@gibsonsir.com.

The Draper House is for sale.  Not to be confused with the Don Draper house.  For those unfamiliar with the Draper surname, the Draper’s were instrumental in the proliferation and technological advancement of textile mills throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the early 19th century.  Among such technological advancements, the flyshuttle hand loom doubled the efficiency of the conventional loom by allowing one weaver to run two looms simultaneously.   The company, along with the intellectual property, was sold by the patriarch Ira Draper to his eldest son, James.  James built this idyllic Wayland estate (the one in the video) to have sufficient room for family, while also being in close proximity to Boston proper.  This 6350 square foot home boasts six bedrooms, was renovated in 2005, and is surrounded by a lovely garden and gargantuan back yard.  Let me know if you’re interested in taking a look!

This PH was recently reduced to $2.495 million.  At $781 per square foot it is an extraordinary offering.  Also, if you are an international type, you’ll have close access to Logan International Airport.  See the Seaport’s finest while it’s still available.  Oh, the roof is retractable.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me at michael.breer@gibsonsir.com.

Check out this HD drive-through of Marlborough Street in Boston, MA. Marlborough Street is one of the most desirable streets in the most desirable locale in Boston: Back Bay. Below you will find statistics for listed properties as well as those that sold in the last 6 months. The video will take you from the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Marlborough to the corner of Marlborough and Berkeley. All things being equal, the price per square foot will typically be greater as you get closer to Berkeley. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me at michael.breer@gibsonsir.com.

Though the Macallen PHB has been “on the market”, it has recently been reborn.  This new construction was just recently finished and does not resemble the down to studs former self.  It is modernity, style, and functionality all rolled into one.  It also features one of the coolest features that I’ve seen in Boston’s high end luxury condo market:  a gargantuan retractable skylight.  The roof top deck ain’t too shabby either (see the video, and excuse the elevator music).  Come one, come all!  If you have any questions about his property, or any other property for that matter, do not hesitate to email me at michael.breer@gibsonsir.com.
