Enjoy contemporary urban living, minutes from downtown, in this spacious South Boston loft.

Please Note:

The loft has recently undergone a renovation to upgrade the space to a true 2 bedroom unit.
Converted 12 years ago and subsequently renovated, this loft is an ideal canvas for open plan living.

Landlord requires tenant to have renters insurance policy for time of occupancy.

* Fee(s) include: Broker Fee (equivalent to 1 month's rent), Move In/Out Fee (if applicable) and, a $33.90 Credit/Criminal Report charge (per application copy of photo I.D. required).

** Additional fees may apply if your employer uses a 3rd party verification service for employment and salary.
Located on the 3rd floor, this unit is one of 32 in a modest-sized, elevator building with high owner-occupancy.

Please Note:

The main bedroom has been built in the top left-hand corner of the space, between the last 2 posts, and features double glass French doors, a walk-in closet and a ceiling fan.
9 large, high-efficiency, double hung, industrial-style windows give the loft a super-bright exposure with northern and western views.
The north-western exposure offers an unparalleled view of Boston's city skyline.
Across the Reserved Channel is the Black Falcon Terminal wharf, where watching passenger cruise ships dock is always a conversation stopper.
The loft easily accommodates multiple living areas for dining, reading, listening to music, watching TV or simply relaxing.

A unique addition to the loft is a 35,000 btu gas fireplace, operable via remote.

Built-in maple cabinets, a 9 foot-long granite mantel and sconce lighting complete the fireplace design.

The heavy timber columns with their original cast iron lintels have been restored, recalling this loft's industrial past.
A private alcove adjoins the main living space, adjacent to the kitchen.

As part of the renovation, this private alcove has now been enclosed with a door, creating a real 2nd bedroom and/or home office/study.
As a 2nd bedroom, the space can readily accommodate a queen-size bed with side tables.
The 2nd bedroom and/or home office/study also features a large double door storage closet.
