My Notes

One of the coolest loft buildings hands down is Porter 156 in East Boston. Not only was it the first major building to be done in this emerging neighborhood, with so many more that followed, but it also offered its owners the opportunity to individually create the space that works for them. So often new lofts are built and can be only used one way. This rarely available third floor unit was delivered as raw space and the owners meticulously created a stunning two level city home that will leave you breathless! When you first come in the door you immediately appreciate all that this loft has to offer when the space immediately opens up with extraordinary 18 foot ceilings and the best wall of windows overlooking a beautiful park. The volume of this space is dramatic and offers a tremendous living and dining area. But there is more..a stunning staircase leads you up to a second level of living space. It offers great space and a second bathroom! Unlike many of the lofts at the building, the ceiling height on this second level is very high allowing anyone to stand without difficulty. The openness of it keeps with the loft look, but the practicality of it is one of a kind! It is an incredible home and it not only offers some of the larger square footage in the building, but also has all the amenities you would expect there to be in a well established property. There is garage parking, laundry hook-up, air-conditioning, both a private deck and a common roof deck and entertainment room, on-site management and a very active and strong community within the building who love living here and are passionate about where East Boston is headed. With so many new properties coming on the market over the next few years as the East Boston Waterfront begins to develop and all the retail and restaurants emerging nearby the timing is right for this rapidly growing neighborhood. Best yet, this space has already been transformed to a beautiful home, so all you need to is just move in and enjoy!  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts East Boston home values will increase 3.7% next year, compared to a 1.7% rise for Boston as a whole. Among East Boston homes, this home is valued 27.4% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 59.2% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In East Boston, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 13.8% higher than in Boston, and 45.7% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent East Boston home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Boston.
