As one of the 1st buildings in the Leather District to undergo a residential conversion back in 1981, this unit has been subsequently renovated using custom built-ins + casework, sleek modern fixtures + lighting.
Located on the 3rd floor with a northern exposure, this unit is one of 8 residential units in a small-sized building.
At 1900 SF± of usable space, the space allows for flexible room layout to accommodate multiple living areas for dining, reading, working, watching TV or simply relaxing.
11½ foot-high ceilings and the open floor plan lend this loft an exaggerated sense of space + light.
Concrete wrapped columns, massive cross-beams and painted brick walls lend industrial charm to the unique design of the loft.
4 over-sized windows flood the main living space with day-long natural light.
All windows are double-hung, insulated, fully operable and offer a north-eastern exposure.
Looking left past the new 2 Financial Center building up East Street towards South Station on Atlantic Avenue.
Looking right through the fire escape over South Street towards the State Street building beyond.
Central heating and air conditioning are ducted throughout the loft with additional ventilation provided by two ceiling fans.
A recent renovation to the loft is the addition of a 2nd/guest bedroom adjoining the main living space.
The 2nd/guest bedroom is large enough to accommodate a king-size bed with side tables and features a flexible storage system.
Alternatively, the 2nd/guest bedroom can serve as an ideal home office and/or private study.
The original hardwood floors have been covered with a floating floor laminate for a clean polished look.
Custom track and suspended feature lighting illuminate the kitchen/dining area within the loft.
The kitchen has been completely upgraded with an integrated design, featuring a full complement of stainless steel appliances by Miele, Fisher-Paykal, LG and GE Profile Series.
The Miele gas-fired stove top forms the centerpiece of the L-shaped kitchen design.
The stove top features 2 standard burners, 1 super (wok) burner and an electric hotplate warmer.

Above the stove top is a recirculating extractor fan with bright task lighting.
All kitchen counter surfaces are finished with quartzite + mica speckled granite with mosaic tile backsplashes.
A formal dining area naturally adjoins the open kitchen space.
Beyond the kitchen/dining area is the main custom-built sleeping area with adjoining full bathroom en suite.
The main sleeping area can readily accommodate a king-size bed with side tables.
A full bathroom en suite immediately adjoins the main sleeping area.
The bathroom features black granite tile flooring, pedestal sink with vanity mirror and bright task lighting.
A deep soaking tub is an especial delight within the build-out of the bathroom en suite.
In addition to the soaking tub, the bathroom also features a large shower stall with a rain-maker shower head and a separate hand-held spray.
The sleeping area is separated from the main living space with heavy curtains and pull shades.
The view from the main sleeping area down the length of the loft to the windows at the front of the unit.
The sealed doors of a decommissioned freight elevator recall this loft's industrial past.
Adjacent to the main sleeping area is the entrance hallway to the loft.
Two, large twin sliding-door storage closets flank the entrance hallway to the loft.
Adjacent to the entrance of the unit is the loft's 2nd full bathroom.
The 2nd full bathroom features black granite tile flooring, pedestal sink with vanity mirror and bright task lighting.
The 2nd full bathroom also includes a large shower stall with specialty tile stall surround.
The entrance to the loft from the 3rd floor semi-private hallway.
Just to the right of the loft entrance is a storage closet that houses the unit's hot water system.
The semi-private 3rd floor hallway is shared with only one other neighboring unit and has space to accommodate additional storage.
Access to the loft is via the common area stairwell featuring the original steel decking and cast iron balustrade.
A walk-up to the 5th floor reveals the building's common coin-operated laundry and access to the common roof deck.
At over 900 SF± this is only 1-of-3 common roof decks unique to the Leather District loft condominium buildings.
The office towers of Boston's Financial District provide a spectacular backdrop to the roof-deck views.
The roof-top vista dominates the southern sky behind the Leather District.
With 360° views, the common roof deck is an ideal residential outdoor retreat.
The wide stairwell makes for easy moving in.
The building entrance lobby also includes secure off-street mailboxes.
The front entrance to the building features an intercom buzzer system.
Located on the corner of South + East Streets, the lofts at 86 South Street are just steps to South Station (Red Line), Amtrak and the Inter-State Bus Terminal.

Also convenient to the Commuter Rail, Boston Logan Airport, I-93 and the Mass Pike.

Within easy walking distance to the Orange and Green Lines and all the amenities of downtown Boston.
