Downtown Beacon Live/Work Loft, $399,000

Hm, maybe I’ll be a painter after all. I mean, for less than four hundred grand, I can get this rather extraordinary creek-front downtown Beacon loft, with a deck, great light, mountain views. It’s a renovated 1900 factory building (nice touch, leaving up the blue masking tape) called The Lofts at Beacon Falls — five were on the market, there are two left, per the broker. They’re built LEED certified, which is a huge plus for me — they probably used everything from VOC-paints to mold-resistant sheetrock, and, who knows, maybe they took energy- and water-saving measures, as well. Only one bedroom, but over 1,700 square feet. Would be kind of an interesting weekend place (even though it’s downtown), but obviously designed to lure starving artists from Brooklyn full time. Any takers? HOA fees are  $184/month, but yearly taxes are $5,600. Seems like a lot to me, although I always say that. Stats on the jump.

  1. I have met the owners of this development. They are really doing an awesome job with this project. There is also a restaurant on the grounds and tons of other goodies. Check out their website. I only hope something like this could come to Newburgh soon!
