Property’s Morning Obsession: Unique Queen Village Loft in the Fitzwater Factory

This two-bedroom is being described as a “real” loft–which is a meaningful distinction in the world of overhyped listings copy. The word “loft” gets applied to almost anything with an open floor plan and vaguely high ceilings these days, which can be confusing when it’s a rowhouse.

This beautiful and unusual unit in the Fitzwater Factory, however, merits the description more than most, since it’s an open 38×27 space with 15-foot-high ceilings, 11-foot-high windows and a loft bedroom.

Aside from that loft bedroom, there’s another bedroom on the first level, which offers a measure of privacy; and a third delineated space that can be used as an office or den. Industrial character comes from the original wide-plank floors, the claw-foot tub, a salvaged-wood vanity and a wood-burning fireplace. And all that is just for starters; there’s so much more to admire. Is it any wonder we’re obsessed with this place?

The sale is being handled by the City Block Team’s Jeff “City” Block, who wins the award for Best Adaptation of a Last Name By a Realtor. Asking price: $419,000.
