Fort Point penthouse loft wants $1.55 million

The cavernous corner unit has one bedroom right now, but there’s potential for more—and lots of brick and beam

Boston’s Fort Point is one of the best areas in the city for homebuyers hunting for a loft. The neighborhood’s seafaring and industrial past left behind many buildings with capacious interiors and oversized windows, never mind plenty of exposed brick and beam.

The 109-year-old former warehouse at 15 Sleeper Street is a good example of such buildings repurposed. And its Unit 502—retailing now for $1.55 million through Donnelly + Company’s James Souza—is an excellent example of the residential lofts that spring from them.

The 1,450-square-foot cavern has lots of exposed brick and beam, and a run of oversized windows. And, while it’s a one-bedroom now, the listing makes clear that the condo could easily host two or three.

As for that price, it’s hefty, no getting around that—the median Boston condo price was $700,000 as of the end of the January—but it is a choice location right across the channel from downtown and right next to the Seaport District and Southie. What’d you think?
