This information was sent to me via Trulia, I thought it was interesting enough to pass on to you. Boston condo and single family home buyers, does this sound right?...:

Americas most lovable features*

While theres a small difference in what they love the most, our recent survey showed both men and women agree on which top features make them fall in love with a home. When we asked first-time home buyers which home amenity would make you, personally, fall in love with a home?, here were the top answers:

Boston Penthouse Loft Illuminated with Natural Light

One of the reasons people search for lofts is the perception that they will have enormous windows that let in rays upon glorious rays of sunlight - a big plus in a city like Boston that gets it's fair share of gray days in the winter. This is not always the case, as buildings have four (or more) sides - some that face alleyways or other buildings that are extremely close, and, of course, loft units can be on the first floor and even below grade. In addition, the size of lofts can mean that the interior living space suffers from a lack of the gleaming sunlight that other areas of the home boast. If incredible natural light in all aspects of your Boston loft is a necessity, this Midtown penthouse should be at the top of your list. Recently featured in local home design magazines, 5-7-9 Hudson is the result of combining two condo units into one magnificent floorplan that has: four exposures with incredible city views from factory-sized windows,2 European-styled glass tiled bathrooms with skylights, an interior central "zen" courtyard with reflecting wallsthat brings sunlight directly to the inside of the home. Crisp, bright, luxurious finishes and a cozy corner living area complete with wood-burning fireplace that can warm up the gloomiest day the Hub skies could offer. Not to be labeled as an inclement weather retreat only - In addition to the central courtyard, a private 468 Square Foot rooftop terrace with lush plantings that enjoy 360 degree Boston skyline and area views offers a dramatic warm weather urban oasis. Custom contemporary finishes, thoughtful design and smart storage complete this amazing 3+ bedroom, 2 Full bathroom Boston loft home.
