Classic Belltown loft has a beautiful statement bookshelf
If you’re a sucker for a sliding-ladder library, unit 102 in the Belltown Lofts at 66 Bell Street has a real stunner: a floor-to-ceiling teak shelf spanning almost a full wall in the living area. It’s a nice complement to the classic, vintage-industrial loft look, which full of exposed timber and brick.
This 1918 warehouse was converted to condos in 2000, and the units are a nice mix of modern amenities and vintage appeal. It’s a corner unit, with multiple steel-frame window banks wrapping around the living room—nobody tried to cram a whole condo behind one big window here. Despite being installed in (a) a loft and (b) the year 2000, the kitchen is giant and tucked away in its own corner, ready for messy and ambitious baking projects.
Both of the unit’s bedrooms are lofts, leaving them both open to that natural light. One is tucked against a window above the kitchen. The larger of the two is lofted a few steps higher, and has a full, en-suite bath.
Belltown Lofts is just a block and a half from the waterfront, and residents share a large roof deck to soak in those viaduct-less views over Pier 66. For more secluded (and less windy) outdoor space, a shared courtyard has its own outdoor lounge space.
