This week’s house at 328 Ontario St., Albany has a safe-house atmosphere. It’s the former Albany Plumbers Union, converted into a home. A mural painted in 1980 covers the exterior walls. There are no windows — natural light comes through skylights. The decor is industrial, including a Z-Box, which is a three-walled room within a room that contains the property’s one bed as well as closets, shelving and lighting. The kitchen has a diner-style booth and steel cabinets, painted red. The one bathroom, finished with a black porcelin sink and toilet, has a huge walk-in shower with multiple heads. The house has 1,700 square feet of living space. Taxes: $6,309. List price: $240,000. Contact listing agent Alex Monticello of Monticello Real Estate at 518-227-0718. An open house is planned for 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
