Say what you will about the Boston apartment market (we certainly do) but one thing that cannot be taken away from it is its consistent smattering of truly gorgeous offerings. There is always something(s) to make one stop and stare. To that end, we drop a photo-heavy list of the five most beautiful rentals currently up for grabs in Boston proper. Not surprisingly, the rents within this quintuplet are on the higher end. Like the rent for the first one: the Presidential Suite at the Taj Boston at 15 Arlington Street. It is asking $75,000 a month and is the priciest rental listing in Boston. The furnishings come with the 1,543-square-foot spread as do the hotel's services. __
The most expensive non-Taj rental listing in Boston is Penthouse 1-D at the Mandarin Oriental at 776 Boylston Street. It wants a mere $35,000 a month, and is yet equally mesmerizing. The condo for rent is 2,025 square feet and comes with hotel services as well as three curved flat-screen TVs and a sweeping private deck. Now that's beautiful.
The pricing wattage dims considerably with No. 3, though not the gobsmackingness. Unit 2 at the newish Winter Place Residences in Downtown Crossing is asking $12,000 monthly for its plushly baroque interiors. It's 3,435 square feet and comes with a private deck.
The private deck for Unit 209 at 201 Newbury Street (a.k.a. the Prince) is alone beautiful enough to land it on this list. The rest of the 1,250-square-foot condo for rent is cleanly done and chock-a-block with natural light. It's asking $7,800.
This townhouse-style condo for rent in the Church Court condos at 492 Beacon Street is simply adorable. Just look at the windows in one of the three bedrooms (are those clovers?). The living room's quite capacious, not surprising given the building's previous life as a church. Asking rent: $7,500.
