Homebuyers looking for a cozy but stylish one-bedroom will find plenty to like about this smartly updated corner unit in a handsome former bank in the heart of Lakeview. The home makes the best of its 800 square feet and includes separate living and dining areas and an updated kitchen with a pass-through breakfast bar, quartz counters, marble backsplashes, and matte black hardware. Other upgrades include new lighting, a completely remodeled bathroom, and a smart thermostat system.

The condo offers sweeping northwest views from the top floor of the former Belmont-Sheffield Trust and Savings Bank Building, designed by architect John Nyden in 1928. The landmarked structure was once home to a hotel before turning into rental apartments and, finally, for-sale condos in 2005. Now known as the “Lofts at The Vic,” the building is directly across the street from the Vic Theater and steps from the Belmont CTA station.

Pick it up for $264,900.
