The narrow, shadowy alley of Henchman Street in Boston’s North End, not to mention the cramped quarters of most of its tenements, belie the broad, bright expanse of space in Unit 6 at 4-6 Henchman St. And two addresses mean double the space, the light and the value in this 855-square-foot, 2-bed loft unit, all for the price of one: $493,000.
Just step inside the great room for the ultimate experience in light-filled luxury loft living:
*a rich red wall accent introducing the great room from the unit entry;
*corner exposure along five oversized windows;
*an open-plan hardwood floor, for freedom in living-space planning;
*an exposed brick accent hailing the building’s industrial past;
*an open flow into a well-appointed kitchen with central island breakfast bar, butcherblock *counters, white custom cabinetry and matching white appliances;
*a high ceiling with recessed lighting adding to the light loft effect.
The master bedroom, though cozier, is still spacious enough for a king-size bed, with room to spare for ample closet storage space.
The smaller second bedroom is suitable as an out-of-the-way study, home office, music room or nursery.
Located in Boston’s oldest neighborhood and main Italian community, Unit 6 at 4-6 Henchman St. is a short walk from an abbondanza of Italian restaurants, cafes and pastry shops along hip, hustling Hanover Street. Also along there is Boston’s famed Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walk past Old North Church (which rises up from behind Henchman Street), the Paul Revere House, Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, and other revolutionary historic sites in Charlestown and downtown Boston.
