When units in this Everett building was converted to apartments in 2006, brokers handed out Charleston Chew bars in their sales offices, a nod to the building’s past life as a factory for the chocolate-covered nougat treats.
While unit 402 at 43 Charlton St. may not come with free candy, it does offer prospective buyers a factory-chic look, with brick walls, wood-beamed ceilings, and exposed piping throughout the 1,146-square-foot space. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit is on the market for $649,900.
“Because it was an old factory, the entire building and all the units have a really neat and unique brick-and-beam feel to it,” said the unit’s listing agent, Robin Doherty of Keller Williams Realty Boston Northwest. “It has the loft-style feel that typically you would see in New York City or in the more manufacturing areas of Boston.”
The loft-style apartment has an open floor plan encompassing the kitchen, living room, and dining area, as well as bamboo floors throughout. The space fills with natural light from 7-foot-tall windows and a slider in the dining area to a private balcony. Pendant lights hang from the 11-foot ceilings.
The kitchen offers stainless-steel appliances (including a gas stove), a white quartz countertop, and an under-mount sink. The metal cabinets above the sink pull up, adding to the factory feel. Drawers in the lower cabinetry provide a great space to store small appliances and dishware.
The primary bedroom is at one end of the apartment and gets natural light from a panel of three windows set in the exposed-brick wall. It also has a custom walk-in closet with wood built-ins.
The bathroom has ceramic tile on the floor and surrounding the combination tub/shower. A mirrored medicine cabinet hangs above a single-sink vanity with a manufactured stone countertop.
The other bedroom and an extra room without a closet sit at the other of the unit. The seller used the extra room as a bedroom and the bedroom as an office, Doherty said. “It really could be used as a three-bedroom, or a guest room easily, and you definitely have a nice big office space separated out. Even though it’s a loft-style open layout, the way that the unit is, there really are three distinct, separate rooms.”
The unit comes with a washer and dryer and two parking spots.
