If you are looking for a beautiful apartment community in Boston with top-notch amenities and luxurious living then Lantera probably popped up on your search list. I took a tour during their grand opening event and absolutely loved the space. Located in the Brighton neighborhood it’s the perfect place for you if you like to live near the city, universities, restaurants, the Charles River and more.
Lantera has a variety of residences starting from studios to three-bedrooms. I toured a number of their units including this good-sized one bedroom 1 bath apartment. The apartment does not feel cramped and the modern finishings, especially in the kitchen, are a plus. The kitchens include light and dark cabinet options, quartz countertops, under cabinet lighting and stainless steel appliances.
With floor to ceiling windows, balconies and walk in closets you can’t help but fall in love with the rooms. There is a clear focus on technology and good quality, elegant finishings throughout the rooms and the entire building.
One feature that is usually a deal breaker for most renters is the presence of a washer and dryer in the unit. Lantera has that covered; all apartments are energy-efficient.
you’ll fall in love with the common areas, which are comparable or even surpass some hangout spots in Boston in my opinion. In addition to a zen garden, there is an outdoor pool deck area with cabanas, fire pits, outdoor dining areas and private grilling stations. There is even an open gathering space with a fireplace lounge, bar and gaming area. For those who work from home you will love the tech bar! I would just move in for the amenities but everything else about these residences is awesome. Covered parking, fit studio, pet friendly, beautiful grounds and the fact that it’s next to a commuter rail stop are just some of the other great features Lantera provides.
With the way I am raving about this place one would think I work for them which I don’t. I just give credit when its due. This place is a gem and if you are not sure you want to live there, I suggest at least stopping by for a tour before crossing Lantera off your list.
