Inside Lovejoy Wharf: A Robert A.M. Stern Experience
Robert A.M. Stern encapsulates Lovejoy Wharf perfectly when he says, “On this very special gateway site facing Boston’s harbor and the Zakim Bridge, we’ve created a contemporary building rooted in the city’s traditions, one that prioritizes spectacular views.” From the moment you approach the property, you are immediately met by the stunning architectural work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
Designed with Boston in mind, the property’s red-brick façade lined with large windows, pays homage to the city’s historic architecture, and as it rises breaks free into a faceted glass curtainwall, giving it a contemporary vibe. You’ll notice a three-story-high limestone-trimmed passageway, which gives way to a breathtaking view of the Bunker Hill Monument across the Charles River, and leads to the property’s wharfside restaurant collection.
As you approach, you’ll be sheltered by a bronze canopy as a staff member guides you through an entrance that boasts hand-selected granite and limestone. Immediately as you enter the distinctive lobby, your eyes are drawn across the travertine floor to breathtaking imagery curated by Boston Art with input from Bruce Beal, a theme that is carried throughout the entire property.
While walking through the building it is immediately apparent the amount of thought that went into every intricate detail of Lovejoy Wharf’s exquisitely designed interior. The residences are timeless, each one drawing the outside in to emphasize the views over the Charles River, Boston Harbor, and extensive city skyline. A blend of natural finishes that include wide-plank oak, bronze and marble create the perfect classic luxury setting. You will notice first-class appliances in the kitchens complimented by custom-oak cabinetry, handset tile backsplash and quartz countertops while the marble-tile bathrooms offer Kaldewei deep-soaking tubs paired and elegant vanities.
To complete the Lovejoy Wharf experience is a host of exquisitely designed, state-of-the art amenity spaces crafted to provide residents with a sense of calm and relaxation. The library boasts artisan-designed furniture that provides a warm yet vibrant palette of leather and suede, adjacent to a billiards room perfect for unwinding and enjoying time with friends. A nearby open lounge makes for the perfect spot to for read or have coffee. The decadent party room provides the perfect vibe and aesthetic appeal for gathering with family and friends for a cocktail event. Or, you can venture right to the spacious rooftop sun terrace, which is beautifully landscaped and offers sweeping views of the city. Finally, a state-of-the-art waterfront fitness center offers the latest equipment and gives you the unique ability to exercise while looking out at Boston and the harbor.
The meticulous detail and design that went into the creation of Lovejoy Wharf is unmatched. From the structure of the property to the interior design, one visit leaves you with an unforgettable experience.
