Loft lovers seeking a unique space to display their collection of books, vinyl, or antique toys will find plenty to like about this River North penthouse featuring a wall of built-in shelves accessed by a custom floating staircase and suspended glass catwalk.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence is located on the ninth floor of One River Place at 758 N. Larrabee Street. Built in the 1920s as one of the city’s first cast-in-place concrete buildings, the riverfront structure once served as a Montgomery Ward merchandise building before turning into condos in 2000.

Featuring 3,000 square feet of flowing, open living space and a generous 16 feet of headroom, the bright loft also includes a small outdoor balcony and 1,000 square feet of air rights for the next owner to build the roof deck of his or her dreams.

The downtown home listed with an asking price of $1.2 million, recently reduced from $1.3 million.

The shelves are a book and vinyl-lover’s dream.
The open floorplan flows between the sitting, dining, and working areas.
The kitchen includes two ovens, three sinks, and separate butler’s pantry.
Even the bedrooms have 16-foot ceilings.
This bathroom features a mix of white subway tiles and exposed original brick.
