New 'Mira' Condo Development Offers Luxury Living in East Boston with Harbor ViewsSource: Redfin/Jyoti Justin

The Boston real estate market is buzzing with the addition of Mira, the new 64-unit condo development in East Boston. Priced at $760,000, the home of the week spotlight falls on a two-bed condo featuring a luxurious marble bath, as reported by Built in 2024, this third-floor unit doesn't skimp on style with engineered oak flooring, a quartz-topped kitchen island, and Bosch appliances solidifying its contemporary charm.

Conveniences include a laundry closet with stacked washer and dryer, and a private 50-square-foot balcony offering views of Boston Harbor and downtown skyline, nonetheless marred by the struggles of finding a permitted parking spot. The pet policy allows two fuzzy companions per unit, but puts the kibosh on "aggressive" breeds. Building amenities aren't short on appeal, providing residents with a pet wash, fitness center, and even a small art gallery to peruse or perhaps inspire. According to Redfin, even if this particular unit is without dedicated parking, street parking permits can iron out the creases for car owners.

Privacy is also a selling point as the two bedrooms are strategically positioned at opposite ends of the condo. The primary suite is a marble-laden sanctuary complete with a Silestone-topped vanity and Carrara marble embracing the walls and floors. The stylish building is situated near Central Square and is a mere 0.6 miles from Maverick Station on the Blue Line, offering an easy commute for those bitten by the travel bug or daily rat race participants.

Starting prices for units in this development begin at $619,000 and scale up depending on size and amenities. Prospective buyers or leaseholders looking for a one-bedroom pad are looking at the starting block, which is but for a corner, one-bed, one-bath condo featuring partial water views and an energy-star rated appliance suite, complete with in-unit washer-dryer. The home package enjoys a monthly fee of $519.80, which reportedly covers water, sewer, structural and grounds maintenance, and a reserve fund, thrusting unforeseen costs off the shoulders of residents.

For those with pet pals or electric cars, the building is accommodating with pet wash stations and EV charging ports welcoming to the unit owners. Still, the developers have drawn a line in the sand on short-term leases, refusing to let owners list on Airbnb or similar platforms, as pointed out by the listing agents. Those looking to revel in a new slice of East Boston life can consider the Mira condos, which seem to embody modern living's sleekness matched with the infamous Bostonian charm.
