Millennium Tower’s city views are unbeatable
As you stand before the grand floor-to-ceiling windows in every room of Unit 3701, the Boston cityscape unfolds below—wide views of Back Bay, the Public Garden and Charles River paint the walls of this two-bedroom, two-bath condominium. Resting on ivory oak hardwood floors, the marble kitchen island is a rare find, only offered in Millennium Tower’s “grand” floors, separating the open-concept living room and dining room while still maintaining a spacious feng shui. White Poggenpohl cabinetry and metal furnishings speak to the contemporary style accentuated by a chic, minimalist chandelier. Any entertainer is decidedly prepared to welcome guests with a Sub-Zero wine fridge, Wolf oven and gas cooktop. When it’s time to wind down, the inviting primary suite includes a walk-in closet and marble en suite with heated flooring for maximum comfort. But the amenities do not stop there. Beyond this unit’s doors, Millennium Tower boasts premier luxuries like a screening room, multisports simulator and 75-foot indoor lap pool for all of its residents. $2.995 million, 1 Franklin St., Unit 3701, Haley Cutter, 774.240.9174, compass.com
The grounds of 18 Longmeadow Drive.
Drive through the towering trees of Westwood’s desirable Stevens Farm neighborhood to reach an impressive traditional villa’s facade. “Anyone looking for a show house will find incredible value in this home,” says listing agent Rikki Conley. “It is grand and welcoming at the same time.” Stepping through the double doors of the eight-bed, 10-full- and three-half-bath estate, an immense foyer with white travertine floors welcomes visitors inside. For summer soirees, usher guests down the hallway and through French doors to a 70-foot terrace overlooking the pool. When you aren’t entertaining, the office’s work-from-home setup is a dream.

Upstairs, the primary suite features an extensive walk-in closet and two luxurious en suites. After unwinding in the soaking tub, continue your self-care on the lower level, where a sauna and gym await, or invite guests for a movie night in the tiered theater—visitors will never want to leave. $6.75 million, 18 Longmeadow Drive, Westwood, Rikki Conley, 617.413.0064, benoitrobinsonorourke.com

Estate of Being
Situated on a picturesque bluff overlooking a private beach on 500 feet of immaculate Atlantic shoreline, one dreamy property, better known as High Scatteree, spans over 3 acres of green land. With more than 7,200 square feet of living space, the abode is a dream summer compound and features nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a guest house. “Every town has that one property everyone knows about, and for Chatham, this is the one,” says listing agent Brian Dougherty. “The property is irreplaceable, and a buyer will appreciate that they’re acquiring a one-of-a-kind home in a beautiful, sophisticated but relaxed coastal town.” The sprawling Georgian Revival mansion is ideal for hostesses and homebodies alike. Manicured hedges offer plenty of privacy, but when one chooses to invite outsiders in, entertaining spaces abound. Serve cocktails in the expansive, open-concept kitchen and sunroom, or lead guests through French doors to an oceanside porch. Passing endless windows that frame Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, retreat up dark wood stairs to a glass head house and roof deck with panoramic views of the scenic vistas—but that’s not all. Outside, one can enjoy a brisk game of tennis on clay courts or a leisurely stroll through the rose garden and arboretum. And, if you’re feeling more adventurous, a private deep-water dock and boat house means the sea breeze and salt spray are never far away. $18.8 million 108 Cotchpinicut Road, North Chatham, Brian Dougherty, 617.217.1842, compassprivatebrokerage.com
