26 Irving Street Studios
26 Irving St
Designed to be artist studios, this condominium is conveniently close to the Malden Center T. Residents can easily access all of the shops and restaurants in Malden Center. Interestingly, this artist community was originally a convent. It was built in 1900 and well-maintained by the nuns over the years. In the last few years, it was completely renovated to become a condominium property.
Within this condo, residents will find plenty of natural light. In the corner units, residents can enjoy southern, eastern and western exposures. While they may be studio condos, these units feel surprisingly spacious because of the design. The open layouts and large windows allow plenty of natural light to flood the space. In addition, ultra-high ceilings really open up the space.

Converted to a condominium in 2009, this building was previously the Sacred Heart Convent. When it was transformed, it was with the goal of creating artist studios. Each studio is designed with a work area and living space that artists can use to create amazing artwork. Because of this design, all of the units have to be purchased by working artists.
Each condo owner has to pay a monthly condo fee. This fee covers costs like master insurance, exterior maintenance and community amenities. As an added convenience, the condo fee includes the price of water as well.
Designed to be exceptionally comfortable, these units include modern conveniences like overhead microwaves and dishwashers. Within the condos, residents will find additional space that is perfect for a kiln. In the bathrooms, residents will discover granite counter vanities and tile flooring. Equipped with walk-in closets, these light-filled units are the perfect space for creating amazing works of art.
