The condo you’ve been waiting for!  185 Morrison Ave in Somerville MA is  a loft-like two-bedroom condo in the former Lowe School.  Located just a block or two from the heart of Davis Square and the bike path on a pretty side street, you’ll love having so much so close by – the movie theater, plenty of restaurants, pubs and cafes, gym, shops, the library, and the Red Line.

Fans of renovated schoolhouse condos know that these wonderful brick schools offer high ceilings, huge windows and charming details and Unit 101 at 185 Morrison will not disappoint.  The ceilings look to be 12′ and sun beams through the large windows which are top quality insulated windows with custom shades.  I was tickled to discover the original wells for chalk remain on several walls.
