Symphony Court in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood
Latin Music Diva, Gloria Estefan, has purchased a new two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood for $1.1 million.
Estefan purchased the home for her daughter who is a freshman at the Berklee College of Music. The home is a 1,473-square-foot unit on Westland Avenue near Symphony Hall and is located in the 48-unit redevelopment of a 1910 brick & limestone building dubbed “Symphony Court.”
Some of the features of the building:
- 9′ to 11′ ceilings
- 5″ hickory hardwood floors throughout
- Expansive energy efficient dual action tilt-turn windows
- Recessed light fixtures
- Solid core doors
- Brushed nickel hardware
- Intercom system
“She’s an amazing musician — the best of all of us,” Estefan said. “She plays drums, guitar, piano. And she can sing…She sounds very similar to me…I would’ve loved to play an instrument like Emily. When you’re a frontman for a band, there’s nowhere to hide. It took me a long time to get used to that. But music is my first love. I started singing when I talked. For Emily, since she was 2 or 3, she’d make drum sets from garbage pails and things.”
