This 2-bedroom duplex loft in the Marshfield Lofts at 1740 N. Marshfield in Bucktown came on the market in January 2018.

The Marshfield Lofts has 32 lofts, some with gated parking and others with garage parking. It was converted in 1992-93.

It now has an envious location, across from Walsh Park and one of the entrances to the 606.

The loft has 14 foot timber ceilings with exposed brick walls on the main level.

This is a duplex down with the living room, kitchen and dining rooms on the main level and the bedrooms on the lower level.

The kitchen has white cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel and white appliances, including a double oven.

  1. I love not living in a hallway

  2. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a unit this narrow. Anyone who lives here is sacrificing width while also still having to deal with an upstairs neighbor. No thanks! Any improvements since the 2015 sale? If not, seems like pretty aggressive price appreciation.

  3. I do not like levels
    I do not like short ceilings in my bedroom and bathroom either
    that living room makes me sad

  5. “Here’s the previous listing. looks like they installed new wood floors on both level.”

    Okay, so that’s $10K tops, likely closer to $7K. I guess that excuses the realtor from not including it in the description.

  7. I like it – – I think it is priced a little too aggressively for what you get but it is cozy. I am not usually a fan of the powder room right near the kitchen / dining though. Also looks like the tank topper on one of the toilets is pretty badly chipped? Think they could fix that for such premium pricing 😉

    I don’t think upstairs neighbor is that big of a concern here given the bedrooms are downstairs – – the worst is my friends duplex down where the kitchen / dining for the unit above hers is directly over the master bedroom…on top of that the female occupant likes to wear heels….indoors. THAT is a crap layout.

  8. I saw a condo in the building last weekend at the open house. By the time the open house opened it had offers. The building is nice and I bet a lot of people want to be by the 606

  9. Skinny and tall might look good on a spouse but not so much in a house.

  10. Typical Redfin listing…priced about $25K below market value…when will people learn? They’re a tech company, not a brokerage!
