Have You Always Wanted a Brick and Timber Bucktown Loft? A 2-Bedroom at 2300 W. Wabansia

2300 w wabansia

This 2-bedroom duplex up loft in the Clocktower Lofts at 2300 W. Wabansia in Bucktown just came on the market.

The Clocktower Lofts are a brick and timber authentic loft building with indoor garage parking.

Converted in the 1990s, it is one of the most popular loft buildings in Bucktown because it has kept most of its original loft features and the layouts aren’t cookie cutter.

This loft has one bedroom on the main level and the second bedroom on the second floor.

Many of the duplex units have a unique wall of skylights along one wall of the second floor, as this unit does, which certainly lets the light in.

The kitchen has maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances and stone counter tops.

There’s only one bathroom.

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

Bucktown continues to be one of the hottest neighborhoods in the city and inventory is extremely limited.

Is this loft a way to get a toe into this neighborhood?

George Morgan at @Properties has the listing. See the pictures here.

  1. That orphan wall on the side of the kitchen is just so sad.

  2. If there is only one bathroom that means one of the floors doesn’t have a bath. Who wants to run up or down stairs every time you have to go.

  4. hate the combined living and dining… to make this livable i would make the loft bedroom a TV room and keep dining room downstairs. But who wants a 350K 1BR?

  5. Yes I had a townhouse with a bath on the first and third, nothing on the second, running up and down was horrid.

    The lack of a second bath is unfortunate, but this is still a very attractive and large loft in a beautiful old building.

    Wonder if there is a good location in which to build a second bath.

    The taxes are low and the HOA is reasonable. I believe it will sell at this price.

    In this market? In Bucktown?

    You’re joking, right?

    It’s a 2-bedroom with garage parking. To me, this actually seems cheap. I’m not sure you can even buy a 2-bedroom anywhere in this neighborhood for just $300k anymore.
