In today's edition of Real Estate Deathmatch, we compare two North Center lofts under $300K. Both are two bedroom units with tall ceilings and lots of windows. Both lofts also include a garage parking space in their price. The popular North Side neighborhood is close to parks, schools, and shopping, so take a long gander and let us know which place you would choose.
↑ 1801 W Larchmont Ave #101
Asking price: $299,000
Size: 2 bed, 1 bath (1,200 square feet)
The skinny: Once owned and operated by motion picture equipment manufacturer Bell & Howell, the Larchmont Lofts building is no longer in the business of making cameras for Hollywood filmmakers. Instead, the timber and brick building now contains 57 residences. This unit features tall ceilings, exposed brick, and great skyline views from the shared roof space. Parking is included in its $299,000 price.
↑ 3944 N Claremont Ave #301
Asking price: $289,900
Size: 2 bed, 2 bath (square footage unlisted)
The skinny: This super bright two bedroom, two bathroom top floor unit on Claremont was listed last month at $300,000 but has taken a tiny $10,000 price chop since. Nice tall windows stretch all the down the walls in this open loft space. No exposed brick, but the unit has tall ceilings, all new appliances, a gas fireplace and a patio. A garage parking space is included.
