Adapted from a century’s old storefront, this contemporary Wicker Park rowhouse is full of surprises. Behind its facade of brick, terra-cotta, and glass blocks, you’ll find a bright, three-level lofted residence oozing with industrial, shabby chic touches.

On the main floor, the open living area boasts exposed white-washed brick walls, diagonal plank hardwood floors, and a renovated kitchen with concrete countertops and sleek birch wood cabinetry. Heading up the floating staircase, things get even more interesting on the second level where the hallway floor is replaced by a see-through metal grate, open to the living area below.

A second, spiral staircase leads to the top-floor. Staged in the photos as a study, the space connects to a west-facing rooftop deck. The unique tri-level home on Potomac Avenue listed this week for $599,900. It last sold for $537,500 in 2015, according to records.
