    Might not be for everyone but I would love to live in such a unique space.

    It’s nicely done, but I wonder if any of the industrial fabric was intact from it’s days as a power plant? Metal catwalks, steel sash window, transformers, & other equipment are what make these spaces very unique and interesting.

    Oh wow. I love, love, love it. I’m having trouble figuring out where the massive old filled in windows are from outside to inside? Or are they still windows just covered? I would live there in a heartbeat.

    How did I not know that I need to live in an old power plant? The full bath is just killer. I love old brick. Think of all the art you could hang, I could have bookshelves for days! Hmmmm.

    With any renovation, the hard part is figuring out what to do with it. These folks are very imaginative. What great uses of the space!

    Wow — what an incredible awesome home. I love that they kept so much of it just open, wonderful space. I dogs and I would LOVE to live there. Beautiful grounds also — worth every penny they are asking.

    On first glance I thought, no this is not for me, but wow. This home is beautiful. Very creative.

    Wow. Very unusual and as Melanie says, very creative. I like Astoria, it’s a pretty town and nearly everywhere is an ocean view. I participate in an international art exhibit there as often as possible. There’s tons of history in an around Astoria, films shot there, beautiful vintage homes. My only ‘beef’ with the town is that it’s built straight up a hillside and so many streets very vertical—I mean scary, at least to me, LOL. But still this place is sweet and for the right person a real gem.

      I have wondered about Astoria before, when I’ve stumbled across houses I liked that had gorgeous views. I might not want to live there, but thanks to your report, I would definitely like to visit sometime!

    I really like this building and what they’ve done with it. I could live there!

    What a cool home! I’d live there in a heartbeat and decorated just like it is.

    There is so much lush design top to bottom going on in this home. It’s such a great blend of old and new, I don’t mind the updated kitchen, I think it’s not too quirky that it takes away from the flow from the door to the rest of the house. I just want that orange chair in the sitting area and the double wall sink! The vintage pieces in an eclectic hodge-podge are just my style.

    I was going to make the comment “the bathroom is killer” and I see you beat me to it. I love the sink so much for some reason.

    I’m not sure how convenient it would be to have the fridge in the pantry, but I’d be willing to find out. This is a marvelous conversion!

    It’s like a New York–style loft surrounded by trees and vegetation! I’m not into this style myself but it is well done. One thing, the upper-level ceilings look like they may be kind of low, but that may be an optical illusion because the windows are so close to the floor level.

    Am I wrong, or is that double sink a repurposed urinal?

    LOVE IT!
