The Lakeview SFH Alternative: A 3-Bedroom Penthouse at 2919 N. Burling

2919 n Burling

This 3-bedroom penthouse at 2919 N. Burling in Lakeview came on the market in October 2016.

The building has 9 units with attached, covered parking.

I can’t tell if there is an elevator but neither the current listing or the prior listing in 2014 says that it does so I am assuming it does not.

The unit has 12 foot ceilings and 3 outdoor spaces including a front terrace, a back deck and a private rooftop deck.

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

It has a family room and a laundry room that is as big as a bedroom in most condos.

There is central air.

At 2800 square feet, it is bigger than most single family homes.

It also isn’t the more common “duplex down” configuration.

The unit came on the market for $969,000 and has reduced $30,000 to $939,000.

Why isn’t this selling in this low inventory market?

Mariana Knittle at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. Well one thing is for sure…the floor plan sucks. No elevator and a total of 4-5 stories of stairs. Also hard to tell; but the front entry comes right up into the living room space with no foyer or front hall closet. Then it looks like you have to go through the dining room etc. to get to the rest of the living space. Bad feng shui. For such a $$$ condo you would think the Realtor would get some professional photos done to enhance the place; those interior pictures blow. Another major negative is the condo building BACKS up to the Century Mall and other nasty commercial garbage off Clark street.

  2. “BACKS up to the Century Mall ”

    The Olson Rug parking lot, right? Which means that it is likely to lose its light sometime in the future.
