There’s an elegant tiled fireplace and an inviting rooftop deck.

In Andersonville there are a handful of brick industrial buildings that have been transformed into event spaces, artist workshops, and, of course, condos. This brick structure, built in 1895, was formerly a map factory and now survives as a 40-unit condo building.

The duplex unit is currently the only residence for sale and it comes with a cozy, herringbone patterned, white-tiled fireplace, a new kitchen, a parking space, and tree top views outside expansive paned windows.

The top floor features the kitchen and living room with hardwood floors, newly painted white walls, exposed lightbulb fixtures, stainless steel appliances, and built-in industrial shelving. Down a metal spiral staircase you’ll find the bedroom, bathroom, and laundry room. On this level, you’ll find more original brick and exposed timber ceiling beams.

The location is right on the border of Andersonville and Ravenswood, so you get to enjoy the best of both neighborhoods: Foster Beach, West Ridge Nature Preserve, trails along the North Branch section of the river, and a nearby Metra stop and Red Line stations.

Love what you see? 5235 N. Ravenswood Ave. Unit 28 is available for $315,000. HOA dues are $431 per month.

Two white paned windows on a brick wall look out onto green leafy trees. A fireplace with a white-tiled mantel is the focus on the living room with a white coffee table, two brown lounge chairs and a grey sofa facing a mounted flatscreen tv.
The original brick remains exposed in the living room.

The open kitchen with new appliances and cabinets is across from the living room.
The wooden blinds are pulled shut in the grey and white bedroom with a modern silver nightstand and an exposed wood-beamed ceiling.
The bedroom has new hardwood floors and space for a king-sized bed.
A white storage vanity sits between a bathroom and shower on the left and a laundry room with white stacked machines on the right.
The bathroom has a partial open layout and a large soaking tub.
A sunny wooden deck with built-in benches, potted plants, and a six-seat metal mesh table.
A shared rooftop deck gets plenty of sun.
