The Somerset // Back Bay

The bygone days come back to life at this elegant address. The Commonwealth Avenue Mall spreads itself in front of The Somerset condominiums, which were converted from one of Boston's most elegant former hotels. The restored luxurious old-world accents include crystal chandeliers and sconces, gilt-edged mirrors and art, and fine artisan carpeting and marble flooring in the beautiful lobby and grand hallway. Current residents enjoy the numerous amenities: 24-hour concierge, elevators and an outdoor swimming pool and patio. Garage spaces are available for rent directly behind the building.
