In July 2016, a fire swept through this Victorian townhouse, destroying all four condominium units and razing the 1980’s five story rear addition. Sited near the apex of Bunker Hill Street, this through-lot property has commanding views of Boston and slopes down over twenty feet to the adjacent street. The original building is undergoing a gut renovation and a new addition has been designed for the rear. The top floor and roof are being completely rebuilt due to structural damage, providing the opportunity for replacing the historically improper 1980’s dormers facing Bunker Hill Street. In addition, a garage is being designed for the lower end of the property, covered with a green roof and irrigation system.
While each owner has specific customization requests, all of the units take advantage of the panoramic views and the natural light. From more traditional to more modern, each unit has high-end finishes, open living areas and a large deck overlooking the property.
