Things we love about this property crush:

Tricked-out kitchens with not one, but two islands are usually the stuff of suburban real estate listings. Not so with this Chicago loft, whose thoroughly modern kitchen features sleek, deep blue Arclinea cabinetry and the aforementioned stainless steel islands, one of which doubles as a dining space. The open-plan space also has enough square footage for more formal dining and living area.

The lack of defined spaces can be a drawback of loft living, but that’s not the case in this unit, a two-story penthouse with two ensuite bedrooms. The master suite boasts a bathroom with a separate soaking tub and shower and dual vanities, plus a large walk-in closet with organizers. The third bedroom is lofted and leads to the private (yes, private) roof deck.

An in-unit washer and dryer is another a sought-after amenity in urban environs, and this unit delivers and then some with a full laundry room. But the amenity that really makes city dwellers’ hearts flutter? A parking spot. This home comes with two (yes, two) garage spots.
