Buyers looking to own a contemporary single-bedroom live/work space in Chicago’s hot West Loop may have a tough time doing much better than this brightly-lit industrial loft conversion at the intersection of Sangamon and Van Buren. Despite possessing just the one bedroom, the unit feels incredibly roomy thanks to its windows and contrasting ebony floors against whitewashed brick walls and timber beam ceilings. The setup allows the home’s minimalist furniture and eclectic art pieces to establish the visual tone for the entire space.
Other unique touches include a moveable butcher block kitchen island, sliding frosted glass panels between the living room and bedroom, and a storage area located behind an industrial-style metal door. As an added bonus, cable (with HBO) and high-speed internet are included in the monthly $296 HOA assessment fee. Given the West Loop’s desirability and often restricted supply, this property likely won’t last long at $289,900.
