As one of the 1st buildings in the Leather District to undergo a mixed-use conversion back in 1980, this unit has been subsequently renovated using custom built-ins + casework, sleek modern fixtures + lighting.
Located on the 2nd floor with a south-western exposure, this 'walk-up' space is one-of-six units in a true live/work loft condominium building.
12 foot-high ceilings and 6 bright over-sized windows lend the main living area an exaggerated sense of space + light.
The original wood flooring in the main living space is over 100 years old and has been super polished and preserved.
The morning sun hits the top of the buildings along the western side of South Street in Boston's historic Leather District.
The 1 Lincoln Street, aka., State Street office tower provides a dramatic juxtaposition to the historic neighborhood architecture.
The built-in bookshelf + casework delineates a natural home office 'alcove', adjacent to a utility closet that houses additional storage space and the loft's AC + heating air handling system.
With over 1700 SF± of usable space, the loft readily accommodates multiple living areas for dining, working, listening to music, watching TV or simply relaxing.
A newly renovated kitchen is open to the main living space and embodies the quintessential design elements for entertaining at home.
The open kitchen is functionally and aesthetically a design masterpiece featuring a split-level, counter + bar.
Whether its cocktail hour or breakfast the next morning, the open kitchen with its raised counter + bar, is a natural focal point when entertaining at home.

Note the mosaic glass-tiled accent delineating the raised counter/work-bench section from the granite bar below.
Steps lead up from the floor of the main entertainment/living space to the raised-platform kitchen area.
Granite counter-tops and custom-milled wood cabinetry creates a kitchen workspace as beautiful as it is functional.
The raised-platform, custom-built kitchen area is finished with slate floor tiling, which lends a unique rustic design aesthetic to the space.
The extended work-bench/counter includes a ceramic, scratch resistant, 5+ element electric JENN-AIR cook-top.
The extended work-bench/counter also includes a JENN-AIR euro-style, island-mount, ventilation canopy hood.
The kitchen build-out features other JENN-AIR signature appliances including a double wall oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher.
Adjacent to the raised-platform kitchen area is a short hallway leading to the rest of the loft's amenities, i.e., 2 x bedrooms, en suite bathroom and additional storage.
The access hallway and both bedrooms are carpeted lending a unique quality of warmth + comfort to the private living area at the rear of the loft.
The main bedroom suite is spacious, comfortable and large enough to accommodate a king-size bed with side tables and additional sitting areas.
The main bedroom suite is also large enough to accommodate additional furniture pieces, if required.
Two big, double-doored built-in storage closets with custom built-ins flank the glass-brick shower stall wall of the en suite bathroom.
The en suite full bathroom features a soaking-tub/Jacuzzi with hand-held spray-pull and swivel jet nozzles.
The bathroom is finished with a marble tile flooring and half-wall surround, including the whole shower stall.

'His and Hers' pedestal sinks with matching mirrored medicine cabinets complete the en suite bathroom design.
The glass-brick shower stall wall is a unique feature of the main bedroom and full bathroom en suite.
Adjacent to the main bedroom suite is the entrance to the 2nd/guest bedroom and/or home office/private study.
Currently used as a baby crib, the 2nd/guest bedroom is fully carpeted, has bright task-lighting and features two operable windows.
The 2nd/guest bedroom and/or home office/private study also features a built-in storage closet.
As a 2nd/guest bedroom, the space is large enough to accommodate a queen-size bed with side-tables and additional sitting areas and/or furniture pieces.
The fully carpeted private living area within the loft features an additional double-door storage closet with some closet built-ins.
The unique slate tiling and exposed brick feature wall form a dramatic contrast to the wooden flooring and kitchen casework within the main space of the loft.
At the opposite end of the raised-platform kitchen area is the entry to the loft's 2nd full bathroom + laundry facilities.
The unique rustic design of the slate tile flooring in the kitchen area is continued through into the 2nd full bathroom and laundry facilities.
Ceci n'est pas une toilette.

(With apologies to Réné Magritte)
The 2nd full bathroom features a tub/shower unit with fixed shower head, shower curtain, tub and tile tub surround.
Adjacent to the tub/shower and toilet area within the 2nd full bathroom is the laundry room/closet.
