I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with Mary Kelleher, superstar South End real estate agent to the wealthy and well-connected.

She gave me a private tour of several of the best homes for sale at “The Residences at the Bank”, the rechristened “Penny Savings Bank” development that was recently completed, in Boston’s South End neighborhood.

UniT #204 is a 1,688+/- square foot loft-style home, with two full baths (including a master with double vanity) and corner views. It is listed at $1,185,000, or $702 per square foot. Parking is available for an additional fee.

Unit #203 is even larger. It is 2,015 square feet, with two full baths (including a master with double vanity) andd corner views. It is listed at $1,500,000, or $744 per square foot. Parking is available for an additional fee.

New owners would almost certainly want to put down hardwood floors throughout most if not all of these units (negotiating this into your purchase price would be my suggestion).

In addition, putting up walls to enclose one or more bedrooms would be a necessity for some, although more-clever people could think of ways to assure privacy while leaving the room open and airy, making the best use of space.

There are sixteen units available in the 23-unit building, priced from $595,000 – $1.5 million, of sizes ranging from 813 to 2,015 square feet.

A CitiBank branch has opened on the first floor and a restaurant is rumored for the second space.
