Located in a 100-plus-year-old former factory that once contained a cabinet manufacturer, this attractive Bucktown two-bedroom next to The 606 has the high 18-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, and rustic timber beams that make converted industrial lofts such appealing places to live.
The skylit main level is home to a roomy living area, two bedrooms, and a kitchen with an oversized marble-topped peninsula island, built-in storage, and sleek sliding wood doors that can conceal the fridge. The custom space was created by the designer responsible for the wood-lined interior of the West Loop’s Avec restaurant, according to Compass listing agent Lauren Mitrick Wood.
The home’s two bathrooms were recently updated and feature eye-catching wallpaper, including a banana-leaf pattern in the master. A metal spiral staircase leads to the unit’s second-floor den, which could double as a home office or guest room. The upstairs space connects to a private deck offering sweeping downtown skyline views.
The lofty duplex is currently listed for $610,000 and includes a single parking space. HOA fees run $500 per month.
