How did this listing become yours? The seller of this gem was referred to me from a past, multiple purchase client – I love referrals!

How many showings have you had? There have been nine MLS-generated showings, and more if you include word of mouth.

What is the most exciting feature of your home? Exciting is a lackluster word when describing the features of this home, but to narrow it down, folks get “excited” about the true chef’s kitchen, the hidden pantry, the massive space and the engine hoist.

What makes this home right for the luxury market? It’s rare to find 4,971 square feet stuck in the middle of a real neighborhood. Built in 1876, this remastered loft is a one-of-a-kind Chicago masterpiece. With the recent price reduction, there is a very lucky buyer out there somewhere.
