Located near the border of Chicago’s Humboldt Park and West Town neighborhoods, this two-bedroom condo is situated inside a 1918 industrial building that once served as a paint factory. A short walk from nearby Smith Park, the 1,700-square-foot loft residence features an open layout, exposed overhead ductwork, original brick walls, and sturdy 12-foot concrete ceilings.

Despite being big on character and headroom, there are a some minor drawbacks. Both bedrooms feature noisy, open-topped walls and must share a single bathroom. The home also sports a low number of windows compared to other units in the so-called Color Works Lofts building.

That being said, the home is relatively attainable. The freshly listed home hit the market yesterday afternoon seeking $465,000. According to public records, the property last sold for $291,000 in 2004.
