Wood beams, soaring ceilings, and old brick walls—oh my!

Whether this airy, brick-walled listing in downtown’s Gasket City Lofts will make your “loft dreams come true” is debatable, but its postindustrial character isn’t.

Counting one of the best rooftop patio views in Atlanta, the circa-1945 building on Marietta Street is easily walkable to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Centennial Olympic Park, Georgia Tech, and everything in between.

This one-bedroom, two-level loft—a showcase of wood-beam ceilings, exposed ductwork, and old brick that’s scarred in the right ways—was converted from a two-bedroom flat.

The hardwoods date to the building’s beginnings, but the custom staircase obviously doesn’t. The full second story is a master suite, with a double vanity and whirlpool tub in the bathroom.

Counting one bedroom, two full bathrooms, and 1,481 square feet, the listing is being offered FSBO for $347,500. Records indicate it last traded for $312,000 in 2018.

A small but functional private patio and parking space come with.

“The space is really unique,” the owner writes to Curbed Atlanta. “It’s a true loft with the master all upstairs. It’s got a ton of brick and really amazing features that can’t be found anywhere else.”
