Located next to the 606 Trail near the border of Logan Square and Bucktown, this unusual double-wide loft style home is one of Chicago’s more interesting residential listings. While the home’s masonry frontage along Bloomington Avenue may not necessarily offer a whole lot of curb appeal, the unassuming facade conceals a 65-foot-long lofted living room topped by an arched 23-foot skylit ceiling supported by timber bowstring trusswork.

Previously an auto mechanics garage, the property features six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a designer chef’s kitchen, radiant heated floors, a four-car garage, rooftop deck, and a centrally located glass-enclosed patio. The abundance of open space lends itself well to showcasing an art collection or could even work well as a live/work setup. According to the listing notes, the address has the zoning necessary for such a dual-use arrangement already in place.

The 7,600-square-foot home was asking $2.85 million last summer and has taken a series of price reductions since. The property most recently returned to the market yesterday and is now seeking just shy of $2.5 million.
