Lofts are in high demand in Boston and with hundreds of properties claiming to have loft qualities, it’s hard to know which are authentic and which are just trying to fit in. I’ve assessed hundreds of lofts and I believe I’ve found the top seven lofts in Boston for under $1M dollars. So hold on to your pocket books and get ready for a value packed list of amazing open spaces you can soon call home. To keep with the lofty, open feel, I narrowed my search down to lofts that span 1,000 square feet or more. I’m going to list the lofts from the least expensive, up to the most expensive. So no matter where your budget is, you can find the right space without straining your finances. Here we go!
