Spacious Loft near The 606 Trail in Logan Square does Price Drop

2436 W. Bloomingdale Ave

$2,499,900


There’s a bow truss timber loft near The 606 Trail, and recently, the former auto mechanics garage has dropped a whopping $350k from the original asking price.

Situated between the border of Logan Square and Bucktown, the 7,600-square-foot home was priced at $2.85 million last August, and is now selling at $2,499,900. 

The home is most specially designed and architecturally unique as they come. From the massive glass enclosed deck to the 23 ft tall ceilings that are packed with industrial skylights, this home offers both beauty and brains.

Things to take note of: there are six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a designer chef’s kitchen with a massive island that includes imported Scavolini cabinets, top-brand appliances, plus twin undermount sinks. So, if you’re a connoisseur of kitchens, a chef, or simply a chef at heart, this one wouldn’t disappoint.

There are radiant heated floors throughout the home, which is often considered the best kind of heating system, because you don’t realize it’s there.

With a split 4-car heated garage, there’s ample room for you and your guests to park your vehicles, as well as do—well, plain ole’ garage stuff.

And have we somehow failed to mention that there’s a rooftop deck overlooking The 606 Trail? Or how there happens to be a den on the third floor? Just thought we’d add that much in there for you to take into consideration.

In the meantime, check out this masterpiece for yourself.

FOR SALE: 10 Homes … Private Island included!

Why buy a house when you can buy the whole island? Who doesn’t want their own island? If you can scrape up at least 1-1/2 million, one of these Florida islands can be yours to call home. Imagine the view — sunrise and sunset. You’re surrounded by awesomeness 24/7. Take a walk or run around your island before breakfast. Throw some island parties. Catch some lunch from your infinite backyard “pond.” Rent out your island for weddings, special events.

Just to be able to say, “my island.” Wouldn’t it be fun to say, “Hey, if you’re ever in the neighborhood, stop by my island.” Most of these islands are minutes away from the mainland or adjacent islands via boat, plane, or helicopter. Some are accessible via bridge or causeway. If you’re a birdwatcher (and who isn’t?), document all the varieties of tropical birds residing on your island.

All the islands have names. I wonder if you can rename them. What will you name yours?
