Concrete floors and soaring ceilings run throughout this spacious loft – which was once the setting for secret masonic rituals.
The building’s Greek Revival architecture includes a grand stone entrance with a frieze that features the masonic square and compass symbol, and Ionic columns.
An opulent entrance hall greets visitors with black and white marble tiling, white pillars and decorative doorways.
The 1,700 sq ft Los Angeles property – for sale via Van Wig & Associates for $639k – occupies a corner of the building, which was converted into apartments in 2005, and features huge open-plan rooms. Polished concrete floors are contrasted by wood panelling, which wraps around and separates the bedroom. Cement pillars and exposed pipes create an industrial feel, and floor-to-ceiling windows look out across the city.
For summertime barbecues there’s a shaded patio space, and residents can also relax in a common area and spa.
