Economy of design comes into its own in this spacious South Boston studio loft.
Converted 5 years ago and subsequently renovated, this loft is a perfect canvas for open plan living.
Located on the 3rd floor, this unit is one of 32 in a modest-sized, elevator building with high owner-occupancy.
9-foot high ceilings and the open floor plan add to this loft's sense of space + light.
Original rock maple + oak wood flooring has been polished and preserved throughout.
The open plan allows for flexible room layout, accommodating multiple living areas for dining, reading, working, watching TV or simply relaxing.
The heavy timber columns with their original cast iron lintels have been restored, recalling this loft's industrial past.
A bright easterly exposure, from 4 large windows, fills the space with great morning light.
The view from the loft looks over Pleasure Bay to the outer harbor, where a five minute walk takes you to Castle Island, Lagoon Beach, and miles of newly refurbished boardwalks.
The interior design of the space forms a natural bedroom alcove within the loft.
The bedroom alcove is large enough to accommodate a queen-size bed with side tables.

A twin-door storage closet is also featured within the bedroom alcove.
The building is pre-wired with fiber optic throughout for high speed digital cable and internet connectivity via RCN.
Vertical noise mitigation includes sheetrock and insulation between the ceiling beams.
A full bathroom is located adjacent to the sleeping alcove.
The bathroom features unique finishes including, tile flooring and a vanity with bright task lighting.

Please Note:

All 3 hanging wall mirrors are excluded from the sale of this unit.
The bathroom also features an integrated tub/shower unit.
The interior finish and clean lines are complemented by the timber beams and wooden floors.
Gas forced hot air heating and central air conditioning are ducted throughout the space.
Incorporated into the interior design is a 2nd alcove, which provides access to the loft's utilities.
The twin-door closet to the right houses the loft's utilities, i.e., hot water system and heating/AC air handler unit.
To the left is the loft's in-unit laundry closet, complete with a vertically integrated washer/dryer unit.
Adjoining the main space is an additional twin-door storage closet, featuring closet built-ins.
Next to the open kitchen is a formal dining area, a natural focal point for entertaining at home.
A unique feature of the kitchen is its expanded workbench/bar-top that separates the kitchen from the main living space.
The galley-style kitchen includes plenty of cabinetry and a full complement of appliances, including: fridge, gas stove, compactor, dishwasher + disposal.
