The place is 90% finish converted into condo
The whole place is in mint/near mint conditions. The smell of good old wooden house is all over the place. The construction is fully made of wood: floor, floor beams, columns, floor covering, structure(excep brick walls). It is all long open spaces, floor after floor. The place as the original paint color everywhere. A link to the past!

    The place is 90% finish converted into condo
    The whole place is in really good conditons, even after all the years. No broken windows, no graffiti.... or almost, you can count the 4-5 tags on the wall. The whole place is fully made of wood... everything except the brick walls and glass windows is wood.
