Panes in the Glass: The Hub Windows That Won't Be Denied

Friday Finishes is Curbed Boston's celebration of what brokers call "the bones" of homes—the walls, floors, ceilings, stairs, windows, etc., that physically comprise the places we dwell. (All photos and info courtesy of Trulia, unless otherwise specified.)

Where: 75 Glen Road, #B6
Price: $399,000
The Skinny: This 1-BA, 1-BR penthouse condo in Brookline wins in a technical knockout. It's got 17 windows, which is not unheard of in the Hub, of course. But it's 17 windows in just over 800 square feet. That's a lot of natural light, kids.


Where: 2 Avery Street, #29E
Price: $8,990,000
The Skinny: A renovation by Payne/Bouchier left this 5-BR, 4.5-BA on the 29th floor of the Ritz Carlton with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides.


Where: 69 Hancock Street
Price: $4,200,000
The Skinny: The sorts of windows in this 5-BR, 5.5-BA Beacon Hill single-family convey a certain timeless sturdiness via the stark lacing. And what'd you know? The house dates from 1839.

Where: 56 Beacon Street
Price: $12,500,000
The Skinny: We've written before about this Beacon Hill mega-manse, au pair suite and mud room included, but we return to it here because of the nearly floor-to-ceiling bay windows in the living room.

Where: 192 Marlborough Street, #1
Price: $2,999,999
The Skinny: Like a team with one great player shouldering the crucible of expectant victory, the bay window in the dining room carries this 3-BR, 3.5-BA Back Bay condo.
