The north-western exposure offers an unparalleled view of Boston's city skyline.
The loft easily accommodates multiple living areas for dining, reading, listening to music, watching TV or simply relaxing.
The clean lines and interior finish accentuate the contemporary feel of the loft.

The bedroom alcove features a built-in, twin-door storage closet.
Vertical noise mitigation includes sheetrock and insulation between the ceiling beams.
Nine-foot high ceilings and the open floor plan add to this loft's sense of space + light.
