It Started as a Brewery, but the Masonry Lofts is Now a Stylish Condo
It may serve as a stylish condo property today, but the Masonry Lofts can credit its history back well more than 150 years to the site of a former brewery, among other things. First constructed in the mid 1800s, the historic property was originally built to serve as a cotton factory. Around the turn-of-the-century, a brewing company took over, and much later, it became the headquarters of a police union.
Flash-forward to more recent years, and the four-story property has been reimagined once again, this time to serve as 25 condominium lofts. The building offers a variety of different floorplans for buyers to consider, including a cozy studio, a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, and even a two-bedroom plus a den layout.
This means finding a floorplan with just 500 square feet of living space, or even a much more spacious unit with closer to 2,000 square feet of space. The units still retain plenty of historic appeal, as you’ll find exposed beams and brick in the residences, plus high ceilings and wood floors.
In addition, the homes often come with deep-set windows, but they’ve been modernized with more contemporary features and finishes. It’s likely you’ll find top appliances and white lacquered cabinetry in the kitchens.
As for some of the shared amenities, a top floor common area provides some outdoor space and a kitchen, with views overlooking the Potomac River and Old Town Alexandria. You’ll also find a park with seating, as well as a pet-friendly setting.
For added convenience, Masonry Lofts sits in Old Town, which means living just a short stroll away from retailers, coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. The building is also relatively close to a waterfront park and trails, and close to two Metro stations, for an easier commute around the rest of the DC area.
