When you’re deciding to call a place home not every style speaks to everyone. Some people need a home that has high ceilings, and some need a home that has tons of natural light. Other people need a combo of high ceilings, natural light and walls to section off part of the home to define this as the bedroom, and this area as the dining area of the home, but others want a wide open space where the only walls that divide them are the wall that separates you from your neighbor. Loft living is just that a wide-open space that has no walls minus a bathroom. Loft Living is not for everyone and doesn’t fit every single person stage in his or her life. A loft space might work for a single person or a couple but not work if you want to start a family. In the real estate market if you’re on the hunt for a loft space you might figure out that you only have so many choices out there. There are more brownstone, duplex and townhomes available for homeowners or renters to find, but loft space there is only a handful on the real estate market to buy or rent. Here are a few on the market in Massachusetts that are available for someone to call home.
