Dorchester isn’t one of the Boston neighborhoods you think of when it comes to lofts, but there are exceptions. Take the DNA Lofts, a 59-unit conversion of a long-ago printing-press building at 944 Dorchester Avenue in Dot’s Savin Hill area.

And within that building is Unit 10, a 1,238-square-foot two-bedroom with soaring ceilings and a bibliophile’s shelving dream. The capacious spread also includes a bathroom, a washer-dryer, and central air, and its $610,000 asking price through Redfin includes a deeded parking spot.

That price is on the south side of the Boston condo median of $700,000. What’d you think?

More of the living room, including very large windows and a standalone counter next to a treadmill.
The HOA fee is $617.
More shelves next to the kitchen, which the living room couch in the foreground is facing.
The building was converted to condos in 2008.
A bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower.
The loft has one bathroom.
