This two bedroom loft condo, built in 1895, has 1128 s.f. and a fourth floor balcony view to enjoy.
The bedrooms are on opposite ends of the unit for additional privacy or optimized sound control. The kitchen opens up to the living room, which is ideal for entertainment.
This is an urban dweller's delight, though the owner clearly is a little bit country, with decorative touches of cowhide and wicker(?) animal heads. Light woods and neutral decor indicates a desire for the simple things in life, until it's complicated by the backdrop of
spicy red walls.
The bathrooms have marble and granite, combined with the warm tones of the wood, also give off a classy country vibe. To get back to the city, you just need to go to the balcony for a view of your neighbors' units, who are pretty darn close to you.
But you wouldn't stay at home all the time anyway; it's about the proximity and convenience to everything. The neighborhood has a Walk Score of 89, a Bike Score of 87, and a perfect Transit Score of 100 with easy access to the blue line and highways. Proximity to Little Italy is a plus for foodies.
Garage parking included in price is garage parking and extra storage near the space. Though the manager is listed as off-site, door attendants are on duty 24-hours for maximum security. Asking price is $288,700 plus HOA dues of $587 per month.
