You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more quintessential Boston location than Commonwealth Avenue, between Clarendon and Dartmouth streets, nor a home more evocative of the Boston you might see in the movies. Located in a stately 1880 brownstone on the prestigious Comm. Ave. Mall, Apartment 4 at 132 Commonwealth Ave. is in the heart of the heart of the Back Bay.

Steps from shopping and restaurants on Newbury Street and a short distance to Copley Square and the Public Garden, the apartment offers unparalleled access to the city.

A cozy but comfortable 663 square feet, the one-bedroom apartment feels more spacious thanks to 12-foot ceilings, decorated with a tasteful crown molding and an understated ceiling medallion. A beautiful fireplace with ornate wood mantel is complemented by three large windows with stained glass panels encased in the same handsome wood.

The bedroom makes an efficient use of space with overhead storage and a walk-in closet which ­includes a built-in dresser. The bathroom is well-­appointed, with glass walk-in shower and lots of closet space.

In the kitchen, you’ll find a surprising amount of space on the quartz counters, updated cabinets and drawers, and modern, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. Additional amenities in the professionally managed building include access to free laundry on the first floor, an elevator and even access to rental parking
