On-site underground valet parking and 24-hour concierge service will be offered at the Archer Residences, a 67-unit condo building at 45 Temple St. in Beacon Hill slated for completion in late 2019.

Other building amenities include a fitness and wellness center; a club room with a private dining space; a playroom; a pet spa; a boardroom; and a 4,800-square-foot roof deck with views of downtown Boston. The roof deck features seating, a kitchen, and sustainable plantings.

The Archer Residences will offer one- to four-bedroom units priced from $1,500 to $2,500 per square foot, depending on the home, Manuel Davis, senior vice president of residential sales at Advisors Living, the property’s listing agent, wrote in an e-mail. The homes will range from about 1,100 to 3,500 square feet and will feature details like high ceilings of 10 to 15 feet and windows that are 7 to 11 feet in height. There are two styles of kitchens, and some will have walnut finishes, marble counters, and copper hardware.

The homes will be backlit with LED lights and include recessed lighting throughout, according to Davis. The homes will also come with CinemaFrame, which is a concealed home entertainment system, and surround sound.

The most exclusive suite in the building will be the Archer Penthouse. The 6,000-square foot, two-story unit will have four bedrooms, four full baths, two half baths, and a 2,350-square-foot terrace with a gas fireplace, an infinity-edge hot tub, grilling stations, and a fire pit.

The building’s lobby will be decorated with artwork curated by Boston Art and have a fireplace and a concierge desk with a bronze waterfall countertop. Materials used in the building’s common spaces and residences will also include polished copper, imported marble, white oak hardwood, custom limestone mosaic flooring, and curated lighting fixtures, paneling, and wall coverings.

“All the materials are sleek and timeless yet steeped in craft and tradition. They are truly a step above what you may encounter at other luxury properties,” John Day of LDa Architecture and Interiors, one of the companies involved in the development and design of the building, said in a statement.

Investing in Beacon Hill Real Estate: Understanding the Luxury Market

Claflin Building - Beacon Hill, Boston - Statehouse

As the first quarter of 2016 comes to a close, the volume of sales in the luxury market has continued its upward trend of year-over-year growth. We’ve seen an 11% year increase in luxury sales from December 2015-February 2016 in comparison to December 2014-February 2015. This increase can be partially attributed to the delivery of 22 Liberty in the Seaport. However, a large part is also a result of the increase in existing inventory value.

The demand for new luxury construction in Beacon Hill continues to climb despite the high barrier to entry in this picturesque, historic neighborhood. Since 2012, the average price-per-square-foot for luxury condominiums sold per year in Beacon Hill has increased by almost 35%, further illustrating that luxury real estate today is very hot. It’s also the investment choice of many because it is viewed as a “safer” and “higher return” option compared to investing money in the stock market or in a bank CD.

As more and more buyers purchase real estate in Boston, prices will only continue to increase in this supply-constrained market until new inventory is built or old inventory that is severely dated is purchased, renovated and resold.

Beacon Hill Real Estate

New developments are creating exciting investment opportunities as builders continue to move forward with their projects per the market demand. Today, it has become even more important to understand the luxury market and stay appraised of the current offerings in Boston in order to secure a new home or investment property to not only have a comfortable place to live but an investment that will maximize its return later on.

Working gas lamps and brick sidewalks accentuate the charm of this distinguished residential area, cordially referred to as “Billionaires Row.” With a starting price at $6,500,000, which includes plenty of outdoor space including a large front yard in the most desirable part of Boston, this has the potential to be a very savvy investment.

The Archer & Donahue Buildings in Beacon Hill have Great Potential

Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s most picturesque and historical locations but new real estate opportunities have been few and far between in recent years.  It was announced back in February that Suffolk University would be selling two of its classroom buildings on Beacon Hill.  The Archer and Donahue buildings are situated next to each other at the corner of Derne and Temple streets and both stand 6 stories high and are a combined 175,000 square feet.

The future of this location would be perfect for a boutique hotel, commercial office space but especially a residential building.  There is very little inventory in this highly sought after location so a luxury residential building would be quite a draw.  It would be a convenient location for anyone working at Mass General or in nearby Cambridge.  Beacon Hill features amenities like the Charles River, Boston Common and numerous shops and restaurants.

On the rare occasion that homes do become available, they can easily fetch $1,000+ per square foot.  For instance there is a 472 square foot, 1 Bedroom / 1 Bathroom until available on Revere street for $450,000 while there is also a 3,799 square foot, 5 bedroom listed at $4,100,000 on Pinckney Street.  These two homes come in at $953/sf and $1,079/sf respectively.  It will be very interesting to see what comes of this rare and valuable opportunity.  To explore other existing for sale and rental opportunities in Beacon Hill, visit the Advisors Living neighborhood page.
