For the longest time, we’ve called this cozy city condo our home. My husband bought the unit when he first started residency at Harvard medical school, with a resident’s budget. What I love most about our home is that our bedroom boasts tons of morning light, the Harbor is just a 2 mins walk away, our roofdeck has a million-dollar city skyline view, and heading into the city is just a 2 T stops away. Although we’ve shared many memories in this home, it’s time to move on.
We’ve outgrown the space, especially since Zoey has marked her territory! Now, with a new budget in mind, we are on a mission to find the home of our (my) dreams. I thought it would be fun to start a mini-series call “House Hunting.” Who doesn’t love to go house hunt? I’ll take you inside some of the units that we are considering. I’m curious as to how many House Hunting series I’ll post before finding the one that’s meant to be.
Today, we visited a Leed-certified (GREEN) unit in the city that has floor to ceiling windows with an insane city view! Very modern with clean lines, open floor plan, and lots of light. It was everything that I’ve ever wanted- 5 yrs ago. But now, it’s not what we are looking for. It doesn’t have the charm, sophistication, and details that I would die for- marble fireplace mantels, clawfoot tubs, massive crown moldings, ceiling medallions, a private green space, bow-front windows, etc. This space just doesn’t have that FEEL, for me.
Living in this condo would be like living in a hotel. With a 20K common terrace area, a lap pool, and 24 hr concierge.
See for yourself…

What do you think of the space? Is modern your preference?
