This dramatically proportioned home is located in the former Rice School (c. 1869); a stunning French Second Empire-style building situated on one of Boston's beautiful tree-lined streets. The light-filled 5th floor unit in an elevator building has hardwood floors, fireplace, central air, in-unit washer/dryer and an abundance of custom built in storage. The light filled master bedroom features custom California closets. The large versatile lofted area, currently being used as an office/guest room features a wall of shelves and storage. Ideally situated on the Back Bay / South End line, this home is a short distance to Copley Place / Prudential shops, some of the best restaurants in both neighborhoods, and the MBTA.
