Renovated in 2013, this Bucktown penthouse comes with smart home technology and elegant 100-year-old masonry work. Truly the best of both old and new, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is listed for $939,888.

According the listing description, this unit sits atop an “urban treehouse.” While the entrance to the building features dramatic brick archways, inside the home you’ll find a more contemporary style. Traces of the history remain with exposed brick and large arched windows but a modern renovation and open layout transform the space.

The combined kitchen, dining, and living area is blessed with the grand vaulted ceiling and skylights. There’s a ton of outdoor space with a long balcony off the kitchen, a large deck with skyline view off the master bedroom and another third covered deck. The recent renovation brought in high-end kitchen appliances and top-of-the-line bathroom fixtures too. Also, every piece of technology in the home can be controlled from your phone, which includes all the TVs, speakers, lights, and Nest thermostat.

It’s located on a quiet street in Bucktown, at least for now, and is right near The 606 Trail. Living here, you’ll be just a five minute walk to the Clybourn Metra Station and a 15 minute walk to the Damen Blue Line Station.
