For an artist looking for an affordable city abode, this 1,002-square-foot apartment at 139 East Berkeley St. could be the answer.
Unit 102 is on the market for $359,040 for any qualifying buyer with Artist Housing Certification from the Boston Planning & Development Agency and an income under $66,650 for one person and no more than $76,200 total for two, according to the listing.
The building is located on the edge of the SoWa Art+Design District, described on its website as “a corner of the city filled with the eclectic and the unexpected,” where artists can set up shop or sell their wares weekly on Sundays at SoWa Open Market.
“It’s a great location for any artist trying to get their work shown or working in the area,” said the listing agent, Eain Williams of Compass.
The one-bedroom, one-bath itself could be filed under the eclectic and unexpected, with shiny epoxied-concrete floors throughout that are painted royal blue with a matching quartz countertop in the kitchen.
The kitchen and living/dining space are part of an open floor plan, flooded with light from a set of nearly floor-to-ceiling windows.
The space has plenty of other lighting options as well, with recessed and pendant fixtures in the kitchen, a track of spotlights, and orb-shaped lantern pendant lights in the combined living/dining room.
In addition to the blue countertops, the stainless-steel refrigerator, double-tiered counter (the upper level is white marble), and translucent cabinet doors add to the kitchen’s modern look. Down the hallway, the bedroom has a doorless entryway, exposed pipes, and a single-door closet.
The room near the entrance is outfitted with a Murphy bed, and the sellers used it as a bedroom, though it has only one point of egress.
The bathroom has a tile floor, a shower/tub combination with a matching tile wall, and a vanity cabinet topped with white marble.
The apartment comes with a washer and dryer and access to the building’s shared roof deck. Water, sewer, and insurance are included in the $170 association fee.
