This Brookline Condo Is Great For Empty Nesters


This luxury condo at The Residences at Amory Parks in Brookline is the perfect landing place for area empty nesters who are looking to move closer to the city but might be priced out of living in Boston, the agent handling the sale says.

“It would be a very comfortable transition for somebody selling a larger home who wants to segue into a condominium,” Hammond Residential real estate agent Michele Friedler said of unit 103. “It’s a smaller association; there’s only 14 units, so the boutique feeling of the building is another nice feature that’s attractive to empty nesters.”

Located in the sought-after lower Beacon Street neighborhood, the 1,974-square-foot midrise condo — which went on the market yesterday for a little more than $2 million — was built in 2001, offers concierge service, a private balcony and has two garage parking spaces. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit’s open floor plan provides for an excellent flow between rooms, and the high ceilings make it feel far bigger than it is.

The dining room is framed by columns; the large master bedroom has a sitting area, en suite dressing room and bathroom — and the second bedroom has an en suite bathroom of its own. And when you need more room for visitors, the den — which could serve as an office space — also has a built-in Murphy bed.

The spacious kitchen has ceiling-height cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a center island. There’s also a gas fireplace, a large in-unit laundry room and storage.

Friedler said people interested in touring the unit can stop by an open house today from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or tomorrow from noon to 1:30 p.m.
