Buy a 2-Bedroom Loft in the Heart of Wicker Park For Under $375,000: 1259 N. Wood

1259 n Wood

This 2-bedroom loft at 1259 N. Wood in Wicker Park came on the market in June 2013.

It has authentic loft features including exposed brick and 15 foot timber ceilings with exposed ductwork.

It is a top floor unit with roof rights.

The kitchen has maple cabinets and black appliances.

It has all the features buyers look for including central air, washer/dryer in the unit and gated parking.

The loft is right in the middle of the Wicker Park scene, near the North/Damen intersection of shops and restaurants as well as the Division street scene and blue line stop.

The unit has been reduced $10,000 in the last month.

It only has 1.5 baths instead of 2 baths.

Is the lack of two full baths what is keeping this on the market?

Gregg Fisher at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. A drumset in a loft. I’m sure his neighbors love him.

  2. Lacks a second full bath…the only full bath needs updating…artificially low assessments…near the North/Damen intersection (which is one of the most torturous intersections in Chicago to drive through)….no thanks

    It’s a over a half mile away from that intersection! How can that be an issue? If you want to be a mile from a busy intersection, head for Dundee!

  4. The 6 corners intersection is more for tourists who are following GPS and guys cruising around looking at girls. I live closer to the intersection than this place and I never drive through it as it’s easily avoidable with side streets or alternate routes. A better complaint would be an extreme lack of parking for guests during prime time hours when everyone floods the area, but agreed, if you don’t like congestion, don’t live in the city.

  5. This is far far away from the damen intersection, this place’s location is fine.

  6. Jenny – 6 corners is of absolutely no relevance to this property. It’s also near Ashland and North Ave…brutal at rush hour…

    As for parking – all of the surrounding side streets are permit parking. 1259 will be granted permits by the Alderman’s office. I live around the corner. Nice quiet pocket of Wicker Park with all the noise you want just a few blocks away.

  7. So basically the entire area is congested. That’s a valid complaint.

  8. [jenny] – “near the North/Damen intersection (which is one of the most torturous intersections in Chicago to drive through)”

    Its a half mile away, don’t drive through it if you don’t like driving through it. Pretty simple. Even you should be able to grasp the concept.

  9. don’t drive through it although it’s only a stones throw away. that’s like smoking dope but not inhaling. not realistic.
