Just north of Andersonville along the Metra tracks, this steamy 2/2 loft beckons. Asking $325K—just $85K more than this somewhat smaller unit with lesser finishes—the 1,800-square-foot space has barrel vaulted 14-foot ceilings with exposed trusses taylor-made for monkeying around, a lofted den (or third bedroom), skylights, souped-up kitchen, private covered deck, and a shared courtyard. Assessments are $493/month. The building typifies the light industrial conversions common to Ravenswood Avenue. And this stretch is one of that avenue's more desirable, within walking distance of bustling Clark Street and transit. A little more time and we might be talking Under $300K Club. Then again, perhaps not.
