This 2-bedroom triplex corner loft in the Postcard Lofts at 1733 W. Irving Park Road in Lakeview just came on the market.
Few of you would remember that we chattered about it nearly 6 years ago- in October 2007.
The interior of the loft now looks remarkably similar to what it looked like back then. Check it out here.
If you’re walking or driving by this building, you can’t miss this corner unit with its massive and unique semi-circle windows on two sides.
Loft lovers will delight that many of the original features remain including the original safe which is now a bathroom, complete with the safe door serving as the bathroom door.
It has 14-foot timber ceilings and a spiral staircase.
The listing says there is an unfinished 4th floor with 600 square feet.
The kitchen is the same as six years ago. It still has what look to be maple cabinets, white appliances and does not have granite counter tops.
The listing also says there is an “assessment credit available.” From the public listing it doesn’t appear that the assessment includes heat or cable.
The loft has central air, washer/dryer in the unit and garage parking.
It’s come on the market for at least $100,000 less than what it was listed for in the 2007 period.
With nearly record low inventories, will this loft finally sell?
Jennifer Vogel at Conlon has the listing. See the pictures here.
