We’ve see some pretty posh properties here in the annals of Real Estate Porn. But none, I would wager, can top the immaculate condo on the 24th floor of the Residences at the W in Boston’s Theater District. Yes, its views are stunning, its interior design aesthetic chosen specifically to match the beautiful city in which it resides.
But it’s also going for the low, low price of … free.
Meet the latest offering from HGTV’s Urban Oasis sweepstakes, a downtown haven most of us could only dream of, that’s now being given away, starting August 26.
From New York to Chicago to Miami, Boston is the newest location in what’s become a lucrative giveaway competition.
With a mix of history and vibrant urban atmosphere, Boston is the home of HGTV Urban Oasis 2013, a custom-designed 1,000-square-foot paradise located on the 24th floor of the Residences at W Boston, the city’s newest residential hot spot. HGTV Urban Oasis will boast livable, contemporary design coupled with luxury hotel amenities.
Not only will the winner enjoy the space’s 1.5 bedrooms, gourmet kitchen, tricked-out bathroom, and silly views of the Charles River, Boston Common and Public Gardens, but the hotel’s perks are on the table as well, including in-residence dining, valet parking, 24-hour concierge service and access to the fitness center.
The winner, in essence, will get a whole new life, likely quite a few shades of sophistication higher than the one they’re leaving behind. Can you imagine treating out-of-town guests to your “quaint condo in the city?”
“This home is unique from previous HGTV Urban Oasis units, particularly with the sweeping views of the city of Boston and its history,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV professional house planner. “We were thrilled to work with [interior designer] Lindsay Pumpa once again to create this remarkable residence.”
I’m not sure why you wouldn’t enter to win this thing obsessively, but in case you need more convincing, check out the photos below.
