PROS This quirky 2005 loft — one of seven condos in a 1950 structure previously used by a building supply company — shouts industrial chic, from its metal front door to its concrete floors to the exposed pipes running along the 18-foot-tall ceilings. The 54-foot-long lower level is open and flexible, consisting of a kitchen, half bath, and ample dining/living space. An operable garage door overlooks Mother Brook. Floating stairs lead to a bedroom with an en suite bathroom and direct access to a private rooftop deck. A catwalk that wraps around the upper level leads to a space currently used as a closet, but which could be converted to an open second bedroom. CONS The unit’s deeded parking spot is in a lot across the street.
