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?
