Brick Gymnasium-turned-Massive Beacon Residence, $949K

Love wide-open spaces? Try this Beacon brick loft house on for size…

With 4,675 square feet and 24-foot ceilings, this nineteenth-century building will never leave you feeling cramped. According to the listing, 55 S. Brett Street, Beacon once served as the gymnasium for a military school. The most we could find on any military schools in Beacon was a mention of it on a Wikipedia list of defunct military schools in New York. Regardless of its pedigree, this is one dreamy house.

Much like a renovated church, this one embraces its openness and combines the living room, dining room, and kitchen into one, crowned with vaulted ceiling beams.

No surprise that this modern update includes stainless steel appliances and countertops. Furthermore, there are two unique sleeping arrangements contained within the house: A large, upstairs loft with skylights and sitting room. Or, for something a bit more private, there’s the lower-level suite with private entrance, kitchen, and bath.

The nearly-half-acre lot sits in the center of Beacon, NY, a city with a number of upcycled brick beauties, like this one. If you’re looking for a loft waaaaaaaaaaaay north of SoHo, you just found it. Situated about a mile from the Metro North station.
