A deeded parking spot with a charging station? Check. Solar panels on the roof? Check. An electric car? Well, if you buy both units in this building, there's a BMWi3 in it for you.

London- and Boston-based designer Beatrice M. Fulford-Jones has helped transform this former two-family into Wetherby Place, offering two furnished condos with a definitive European flair. Try high-end furniture chosen by Fulford-Jones and Spanish white oak flooring, for starters.

The lower unit offers 1,105 square feet, two bedrooms, two full baths, and a deeded parking spot with charging station for $879,000.

The other condo, the focus of this article, occupies the upper two floors, with recessed lighting and high ceilings throughout the home.


The first level welcomes with an open floor plan consisting of the living and dining areas, each with banks of windows, and the kitchen, which features long counters of seamless, nonporous Krion, a Bosch flex-induction cooktop, Míele double ovens, Cabico frameless custom white cabinetry, and an island with a pop-up USB-power column.

The bedroom on this floor, located off the kitchen, is decorated with indoor-outdoor furniture that can easily be moved onto the adjoining deck overlooking the fenced-in yard. The full bath can be found off the living room.

The other two bedrooms — both master suites — share the upper level and a hallway where the laundry area is hidden behind white doors. These bedrooms have distinctive touches. One offers a walk-through closet that ends at a translucent pocket door. Behind it, the bath is a respite, with an oval soaking tub and a separate shower with four heads.

The second suite lends distinction with high, angled ceilings. Its en suite full bath is shower only. All three bathrooms have rain showers and heated flooring and towel bars.
