Located in a restored 1928 building that formerly housed St. Michael’s High School until a 1988 condo conversion, this expansive 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bathroom Old Town duplex is not to be missed. While many "lesser" units in the old St. Michael's building have to make do with just 14-foot living room ceilings, this particular listing offers an astonishing 18 feet of headroom in front of original exposed brick and giant north-facing paned glass windows. The recently renovated open plan chef’s kitchen plus features white stone countertops, a breakfast area, and sleek, minimalistic mod cabinetry. This top floor unit also sports cathedral ceilings in the master bedroom and benefits from large skylight windows that complement the home's already ample natural lighting. Also included is a media room/home office, a small private outdoor deck, and two garage parking spaces.
Though records show the property last selling for $1.77 million in 2007, the current asking price of $2.2 million is a both reflection of the home’s many upgrades as well as the skyrocketing desirability of Chicago’s tony Old Town/Lincoln Park neighborhood. While a recent report showed that local homes priced above $2 million are taking more time to sell these days, don’t expect this particularly remarkable example to languish on the market for very long.
