Loft in converted Chelsea schoolhouse on sale for $425,000

Soaring ceilings come with the one-bedroom spread as does the original hardwood floor from 1900

Unit 306 at 220 Spencer Avenue in Chelsea is the product of the conversion of a Tudor-style building from a Catholic school into condos.

As such, the condo is a capacious affair, with exposed beams helping prop up a high ceiling that peaks over the living room-dining room-kitchen area. The 1,147-square-foot spread in the elevator building includes one bathroom and one bedroom, and there’s central AC too.

Jeffrey Bowen of Boston Harbor Real Estate has the listing in the property now known as Keen Lofts. There’s one caveat: It’s only open to “certified artists” for its first 30 days on the market (which end in under two weeks now). After that, it’s anybody’s game. The asking is $425,000—which would be a steal a few miles southwestward in Boston.
