The converted condo building at 1000 W Washington carries some of the oldest and sharpest timber lofts in town, as a former biscuit factory dating to 1882. We've seen a pretty snazzy top-floor unit (now sold), and a water-damaged, mold-infested two-bed. We're pretty sure this designer-owned 2/2.5 beauty has a pedigree more in line with the former. The jumbo space is open yet fragmented by multiple levels. Ceilings are awesomely high, timber is everywhere, the new eat-in kitchen has limestone counters and a pantry, the dining room walls feature a peculiar constellation of tiny objects (too cool for Curbed), a balcony rolls off of the living room, and a lower level family room boasts a wet bar and built-in shelves. One might justly complain about the $1,283 monthly assessment, but this is a 3,500 square foot property so it's not completely absurd.
