On The Market: 64 East Brookline Street, #5, South End

Rather than the typically vertical South End units, this home has a spacious layout occupying one full floor.

This condo brings New York to the South End with a traditional, loft-style floor plan that’s rare for the South End, which tends toward the vertical. Rather than newly constructed buildings that advertise one-level-living as “lofts,” this home truly lives up to the title. “The terminology with lofts when they started in New York was the name for a converted industrial building,” says Gibson Sotheby’s listing agent Danielle Bing.

The current owner bought two units in this building and converted them into one larger apartment occupying the full second floor, so this home has almost 3,000 square feet of living space all on one level. This convenient layout has two living rooms and three bedrooms—one of which is currently being used as a home gym—but the flexibility of the space could afford more bedroom space, if desired.

Luxury abounds in this loft from a brand-new kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a sumptuous master suite with a hotel-quality bath, to the high ceilings and large windows throughout.

Thanks to the full-floor layout, the home has views from the front and back. The back of this building looks out onto a back patio, which faces a new community garden, recently added to the area.
