It would be hard to grow out of this 4,424-square-foot custom-designed loft at 3157 S Archer Ave in Bridgeport. The two-bedroom four-bath whopper occupies a nine-unit building that was gut rehabbed three years ago.
A loft this big puts us in mind of SoHo or the Meatpacking District in New York City, where some of the first raw, sprawling loft spaces were converted to live-work space for artists.
But this place is hardly rough around the edges, with plenty of high-end finishes. If you’re sick of granite counters (we are, just a teensy-weensy bit), this baby has stainless steel – kind of a cool variation. A steam shower has subway tiles. Other features include a wet bar, a deck and a detached two-car garage.
The CTA’s Orange Line is less than a block away. And a bike ride will get you to Pilsen’s art scene, Chinatown, the South Loop and Comiskey Park.
Coldwell Banker’s Eve Kronen has the property listed for $745,000.
