On the Market: An Industrial-Style Penthouse Loft in Davis Square
Garage-style doors on this unit open up to an outdoor deck that makes the perfect indoor-outdoor living space.
50 Howard St #5, Somerville
Size: 1,054 square feet
There’s no question: the popularity of indoor-outdoor living has skyrocketed over the last year. City dwellers and suburbanites alike clamored for decks and rooftops to spend warm summer days and cool fall nights. Even among the rise of fancy patios and fire pits, the outdoor gathering space at this modern penthouse loft at Davis Loft Communities in Somerville is sure to impress your guests.
The condo, perched several stories up and overlooking the Somerville community bike path, comes with garage-style doors off the living room and bedroom that open up to two enormous deck spaces. When open, these doors allow partygoers to mingle between inside and out, truly bringing the indoor-outdoor living experience to the next level. The deck space was also upgraded during recent renovations to include a new deck surface designed to reduce heat, wood overhead shades, decorative lighting, and a walkway with built-in planters. So you can go ahead and plan to enjoy the deck on even the hottest of summer days and take in the scenery.
Visitors will be equally wowed by the interior of this home. The Davis Square Lofts were designed to emulate old brick and beam mill factories. With concrete floors, exposed beams, automated blinds, a fireplace, and an industrial kitchen, this place draws from these roots, but remains the epitome of contemporary style. The kitchen comes with soap stone countertops, custom cabinetry, and high-end appliances, including a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and washer/dryer. A center island with shelving provides the perfect storage space for your cookbooks and cooking gear. The oversized main bedroom has custom closets and a mirrored wall for yoga or working out. Afterwards, unwind in the soaking tub or steam shower in the bathroom.
Of course, part of the joy of living near the bike path is that you’ll also be within steps of Cambridge, the Red Line, and Davis Square restaurants and shopping, making it easy to head out for a night on the town.
