We Love 3-Bedroom Authentic Lofts With 18 Foot Timber Ceilings: 1750 N. Wolcott in Bucktown

This 3-bedroom loft in the Signature Lofts at 1750 N. Wolcott in Bucktown has been on the market since May 2012.

It has all the features of an authentic loft including large south facing industrial size windows, exposed brick walls and 18 foot timber ceilings.

The kitchen has white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

From the listing pictures, at least 2 of the bedrooms have windows (not sure about the third.)

It also has the rare (and coveted) 2-car garage parking which is included in the price.

The loft has been reduced $20,000 since May.

It is now listed $21,000 under the 2006 purchase price, at $679,000.

Is Bucktown hot enough to command $323 a square foot for this loft?

Susan Kosoglad Packer at Baird & Warner has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. This is good looking place in a decent location. I hope that this sells close to list. I think that the psf number seems a bit high but appreciate the many extras in this place.

  3. I bet the lack of the third bedroom picture means the place was converted to a large 2 bedroom. Lookin at the pictures, I bet the third bedroom was in the middle of the long living and dining room area. You can see that there are three distinct living areas. Dining Room, Sitting Room and Living Room. My guess is the sitting room (area with two sofas) was the third bedroom/den with a wall at one point…

  4. comps in that area are selling at $200/sf. Even with the high ceilings, nice finishes, etc., it will be take some slick salesmanship to get over $500k.

  5. I really like this place but I highly doubt it sells for over 600k

  6. “Lookin at the pictures, I bet the third bedroom was in the middle of the long living and dining room area.”

    Nah, the 3d bedroom wouldn’t have been directly across from the kitchen.

    There’s supposedly a den, too.

  7. Looks like unit 301 sold earlier this year for $680k. . .

    This building is pretty nice, probably the best lofts I’ve seen in Wicker / Buck. And real loft + real bedrooms is the way to do it (w/2 parking spaces). I’d want top floor though. . .

    The home depot kitchen/baths pain me at this price. Place is screaming for modern. . .

  9. http://www.redfin.com/IL/Chicago/1615-N-Wolcott-Ave-60622/unit-201/home/13052967

    How about a $1.2 million dollar 3 bedroom 2.5 bath

    http://www.redfin.com/IL/Chicago/1849-N-Hermitage-Ave-60622/unit-303/home/40446558

    Then there is this $739K 3 bedroom 2 bath

    Seems like there are some expensive condos in the hood!

  10. If you can live with 2 bedrooms, there are more lofts to choose from in the Wicker Park/Bucktown area. I’m a real estate broker and I recently showed a buyer some units in the old football helmet factory lofts on Wood Street. Much less expensive than this unit and great location close to the Division Blue line stop, bars, restaurants, etc. in Wicker Park/East Village. Email me (Thompson.Chicago@gmail.com) if you want more details.

  11. I saw this place. It presents as pretty beat up and is not nice. They are crazy to think they will get anywhere close to this asking price.
