Size: 2,842 square feet
Running out of room for your growing art collection in your current digs? Upgrade to this wide open loft in Fort Point with wall space to spare. The posts, beams, and brick walls harken back to the building’s past life as the Boston Button Company, but the bright white paint that cloaks the unit is brand new. The spacious living and dining room flow into a kitchen furnished with stainless appliances and poured and polished concrete counters. Owing to the massive living area’s lack of partitions, the glossy maple hardwoods and 13-foot-tall walls are both prime spots to showcase your design sense—so hang up some splatter-painted canvases or haul in those life-size sculptures.
Around the corner from the main living area, the sleek home takes a bookish turn: Reams of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves line two walls of the study and the corridor behind it. Not only does walking down the hall feel like strolling the aisles of a well-stocked library, it offers up endless storage space for your alphabetized archives and a very scholarly video chat background to boot.
The historical brick building’s former time as a factory doesn’t just offer the aesthetic perks of whitewashed brick and post-and-beam appeal, either. Direct access to a freight elevator makes the industrial unit a particularly practical choice—and makes moving day a cinch.
