Available for rent is this true urban South Boston loft, located in the City Point neighborhood.
Original rock maple + oak flooring has been polished and preserved throughout the loft. Six oversized south-facing windows flood the loft with natural light.
This loft style condo is one of 32 units in a mid sized elevator building.
The large open kitchen makes for a home entertaining space that is as beautiful as it is functional.
This contemporary kitchen features maple cabinetry and a full complement of stainless steel appliances. A tile backsplash has been installed behind the kitchen counter and range.
Imported Mexican tile flooring delineates the kitchen area from the main space. The granite finish of the kitchen counter has been extended with glass trimming to create an expanded breakfast bar.
The gas-fired oven/range features a re-circulating extractor fan.
A formal dining area is ideally situated adjacent to the open kitchen.
A Nest Thermostat has been installed. The Nest tracks your energy usage and shows your daily and monthly reports. This is an efficient way to manage your utilities.
The design of the loft retains some of the original elements recalling the building's past.
Brick, beams, and hardwood floors with oversized windows are part of the charm that makes the loft special.
A uniquely designed sleeping area has been incorporated into the build-out of the loft.
The sleeping area can easily accommodate a queen-size bed with side tables. Off the room is a large walk-in wardrobe with California Closet built-ins.
Adjoining the main space is a full bathroom. The bathroom features custom finishes including vanity and cabinetry for storage needs.
The fully enclosed bonus room with pocket door can be used for a home office, guest room, or additional storage.
