The Ames Mansion Restoration

Ames Mansion Boston Exterior

The Ames Mansion, at 306 Dartmouth Street, stands as a shining tribute to the splendor of Boston's Gilded Age. Unparalleled in detail, scale and prestige, the Back Bay mansion is now being restored, updated and transformed into luxury condominium residences with a private underground parking garage. Master artisans have been called upon the restoration of the home's magnificent historic details, including the rare mosaic tile adorning the entryway, intricately hand-carved woodwork throughout, stained glass skylights and window panels by John La Farge, and museum-quality murals by renown French Orientalist painter Jean-Joseph Benjamin Constant. Learn more about the Ames Mansion's transformation in the clip featured on Chronicle below.

The brand new residences within offer an inspiring blend of traditional opulence and every imaginable modern comfort and luxury. This painstaking endeavor overseen by Hamady Architects builds upon the original architecture and legacy of both Peabody & Stearns and John Hubbard Sturgis and is finally restoring an architectural treasure to Boston.

Luxury Penthouse Living on Boston's Waterfront

There is no other private residence in Boston that surpasses the luxury of Penthouse 6 at 10 Rowes Wharf. Located in the heart of Boston directly on the water, Rowes Wharf is the waterfront’s most celebrated luxury address. Rowes Wharf is a mix-used development completed in 1987, but its history dates back as far as the 1630s. Rowes Wharf’s iconic architecture has been referred to as a gateway to Boston and has left an undeniable mark on Boston’s skyline.

Rowes Wharf features a marina as well as the Boston Harbor Hotel, Boston’s only Forbes Five-Star hotel. The Hotel offers Penthouse 6’s residents a white-glove living experience unmatched by any other. The private residential lobby at 10 Rowes Wharf is beautifully appointed and staffed with 24-hour concierge.

Penthouse 6 hasn’t been available since Rowes Wharf’s construction in 1987. You don’t want to pass on its three level, 7200 square feet of living space with sweeping views of the Harbor, Greenway, and city skyline. Penthouse 6’s living spaces were exceptionally designed by Buzz (Robert) Brannen of Jung/Brannen Associates, Boston. The main living space opens to the double-height foyer that features 23-foot ceilings.

The formal living space features a curved wall of windows that draws the eye to the stunning waterfront vista. The living room is centered around a contemporary fireplace and has a cleverly hidden bar which creates a pass-through to the gorgeously wood-paneled library when opened.

The master suite features a private deck, an expansive walk-in wardrobe, and two separate en-suite bathrooms clad in marble. The larger of the two en-suites features a luxurious soaking tub set beneath a large picture window that frames stunning harbor views.

Preparing To List Your Home

Ready to sell your home? Preparing for sale will help boost the value of your home, as well as capture the attention of potential buyers. As a seller, it is important to see your home through the eyes of the buyer.

Declutter & CleanSelling Your Home in Boston

Make sure your home is tidy and organized! You want to present your home at its best during showings. This is also a good opportunity to go through items you may no longer want or need. Clearing out clutter can be an intimidating task, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to get things in order and packed up.

Paint Touch-Up

A dramatic paint color or wallpaper could throw off potential buyers. You want to focus to be on the room itself and bold colors can throw people off. Taking the time to repaint your walls a neutral color, such as beige or light gray. If you had frames on the walls, fill in the nail holes to increase appeal.

Upgrade Curb Appeal

First impressions matter! From the outside to the inside, buyers are looking to be drawn in. This could include painting your home, or even replacing an old roof. If your home has a yard, maintain the lawn and garden. If not, small improvements to the front steps and door can make the curb appeal of your home more inviting. This includes painting the door, having a welcome mat, plants next to the door, etc.

Renovations

Renovations, big or small, will add value to your home. The kitchen and bathrooms are a huge focus for buyers. Replacing outdated appliances, adding new tiling, installing modern fixtures will attract buyers and give your home a new, sleek look. New windows are also appealing since they can help save on heating/cooling costs.

Preparing for Showings

Consider Staging

Keeping the decor neutral will give you an advantage when showing your home. This allows the buyers to imagine their personal belongings in each space and what it would be like to live there. Staging is a great way to bring simplistic design and an updated look.

Natural Beauty

Bring in some natural elements to your home will be inviting and give the impression that rooms are bigger. Opening windows, curtains, and blinds will bring in sunlight and potted plants and flowers will add a beautiful touch. Just be sure the flowers aren't too pungent and the plants are healthy.
