11½ foot-high ceilings and the open floor plan add to this loft's sense of space + light.
A unique materials palette, including wood, stone + glass, decorates interior partitioning walls within the loft.
One such partitioning wall separates a home office from the main living space.
Alternatively, the home office could serve as a possible private study or TV room.
The midday sun bounces along the rooftops of the historic buildings along South Street.
Looking up South Street across the Rose Kennedy Greenway to the Financial District beyond.
The main space easily accommodates multiple living areas for sleeping, dining, reading, watching TV or just simply relaxing.
Hardwood floors have been stained, polished and preserved throughout.
Central heating and air conditioning are ducted throughout the loft.

Additional ventilation is provided by a twin-rotor ceiling fan.
Custom-built framing and casework delineate the kitchen/dining area without closing it off from the main space.
Three fixed barstools at the kitchen pass-through plus the custom wall paneling give the kitchen/dining area all the charm of your local diner.
The kitchen build-out features plenty of glass-faced overhead cabinets, a kitchen counter with diamond cut stainless steel backsplash.
A heavy duty Wolf integrated oven/range with griddle + broiler module complements the Sub-Zero refrigerator.

Other appliances include a dishwasher + disposal and a microwave oven.
The kitchen pass-through opens to the dinning area and allows natural light to filter through to the kitchen workspace.
Adjoining the dining area is the entrance to the 1st-of-2 sleeping areas.
Wall-to-wall carpeting lends a quality of warmth and comfort to both sleeping areas.
The main sleeping area is large enough to accommodate a king-size bed with side tables.
Twin folding doors open to reveal a storage closet with custom closet built-ins.
The centerpiece of the main sleeping area is the decorative picture window with sitting banquet.
The picture window is flanked by two louvered windows, whose glass slats can be tilted open for greater airflow.

A short hallway between both sleeping areas provides access to a full bathroom.
The full bathroom features granite flooring, a tub/shower unit with tiled tub surround, pedestal sink and vanity mirrors with bright task lighting.
The bathroom also houses a custom-built laundry hamper and linen closet.
The bathroom can be accessed via a 2nd door opening from the 2nd/guest sleeping area.
The 2nd/guest sleeping area currently doubles as the loft's TV room.
The 2nd/guest sleeping room also features custom-built casework and a large storage closet.
Picture windows set into the partitioning wall allow natural light to flow through into the 2nd/guest sleeping area.
The concrete wrapped columns and the painted brick + beams lend industrial charm to the unique design of the space.
The loft has been sound-proofed with noise mitigating insulation and sheetrock between the beams.
10 deep-cut windows band this loft's corner exposure filling the space with natural light.
Adjacent to the entrance of the loft is a coat closet and a half-bathroom, for the convenience of friends + guests.
Ceci n'est pas une toilette.

(With apologies to Réné Magritte)
