In 2014, this school was converted into 10 condos. Now, one of the most intriguing condos is on the market for $699,000 with zero bedrooms and one bathroom. What makes this condo so special are its design features and many amenities.
Near the entryway, there is a large-scale mural depicting Albert Einstein writing on a chalkboard, a boombox, and what looks like a wolf or coyote wearing a hat and holding a cocktail. The entire 1,100-square-foot space is rather open with high ceilings and an elevated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. In the bathroom, there are two sinks, exposed brick walls, and a free-standing tub.
Some of the many amenities include a full gym, outdoor kitchen, and what the listing describes as a “40,000-gallon black bottom pool.” The monthly HOA dues total $158.
This building, Pierce School Lofts, was named in honor of U.S. President Franklin Pierce and was erected in circa 1894. In the 1990s, the property served as a homeless center.
