One of the two penthouses at the Lincolnshire in Beacon Hill, this 1-BR, 1.5-BA wins the award for Most Creative Use of Exposed Beams: the potentially hideous black beams jutting through the second-floor loft oddly enough work really, really well, adding a bit of graphic oomph to the whiteness and hardwood. There's also one heck of a view from either of the two private decks. And, oh, it's in walking distance to Whole Foods, according to the listing, though that's debatable by our math and physical shape in this weather (
at least 2 miles to any plausible location actually, a reader points out the Whole Foods on Cambridge is under 1 mile).
