A Hidden Loft-Like Unit in a Vintage Building: A 2-Bedroom at 1847 N. Cleveland in Lincoln Park

1849 n cleveland approved

This top-floor 2-bedroom at 1847 N. Cleveland in Lincoln Park just came on the market.

This is an 8-unit vintage building with gated, secure parking.

The listing doesn’t say it’s an elevator building.

Despite the vintage building on the outside, this 1400-square foot unit has more loft-like features with 14 foot exposed wood beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, and wide plank wood floors.

The kitchen is open to the living room and has light wood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. There appears to be a large wine refrigerator as well along with a kitchen island.

There’s an oversized master suite with an east facing balcony.

It also has a private 1000 square foot roof deck with 360 degree Chicago and skyline views. In the pictures, there’s a ladder in the middle of the living room, presumably to access the roof deck. Is this a permanent feature? Is it always there?

The unit has central air and a rare side-by-side washer/dryer.

Should loft lovers be considering this unit?

Sarah Ziehr at Redfin has the listing. See the pictures here.

It’s also Open on Saturday, April 8 and Sunday April 9 from 12 pm to 2 pm.

  3. So they hold the baby in one arm and climb up the ladder every night? I guess it’s good they’re selling since it would be a shame for the baby or really anyone to fall down that hole.

    Yeah I don’t know….. not really a family type of place.

  5. I am sure they primarily access the roof deck from the spiral stair off the back deck (meaning guests must traipse through the master bed). Fire code requires two methods of egress off the roof deck, so yes, it is likely ALWAYS there, right smack in your living room.

    The place is very strange. I LOVE roof-decks, and in general they are wonderful but a ton more work for entertaining (even when they are easily accessed), than most folks realize. I bet since junior came along, these folks hardly use their roof deck.

    Other than the deck, this is just a two bed two bath with not much notable other than the floors are really nice…

  6. Hi All,

    Glad to see this loft is featured. There seems to be some confusion, though: the ladder leads to the private rooftop deck. The actual bedrooms are all on the main floor. If you check out the 3D-Walkthrough, just to the bottom of the images, you can get a good sense of the layout.

  7. If I could afford this place and was in the market, I would buy it or at the very least request a showing.

    I predict this will go under contract within a week.

  8. Great place. It literally meets all of my unicorn criteria except for price. The first thing I would do is repaint w/less hideous colors.

  9. I looked at the living room and was “beige o Rama”. Then I moved onto salmon o Rama and banana onrama. Wow. I like the place but the ladder is just silly. Going up is bad enough, but going down can be really hard. But it’s probably in the Lincoln School district so it will go in a snap.
