Early in the last-century rush to loft downtown properties, this 1914 warehouse got converted into 15 condo units, each with a glass-and-iron fronted balcony. That was back in the mid-eighties. A see-it-all-at-a-glance corner spot on the 2nd floor within the San Jacinto Lofts showed up in the listings last week for $195,000.
But which corner? The listing cites a shared rooftop terrace with downtown views — but you’ll need to study the views carefully (or maybe schedule a visit) to figure out the 1,177-sq.-ft. unit’s position in the building. The property is located near I-10 and I-45, where Buffalo and White Oak bayous bend, and it’s a long block or so north of the bike trail and the Harris County Jail.
Blond wood cabinetry and granite counters define the kitchen area within an open floor plan featuring exposed brick, stained concrete flooring, and a 14-ft. ceiling:
The lone bedroom area (above) gets 3 walls, with the fourth left open for light (and direct access to the kitchen area). The bathroom, however, appears to have plenty of doors — and a finished ceiling:
There’s a $356 monthly maintenance fee for the property. Another unit on the 2nd floor, 2C, is currently listed for sale at $199,000 — or for lease at $2,195.
