Stunning triplex loft in a historic Nabisco factory / warehouse in the heart of West Loop, Chicago. High ceilings, large windows, architecturally-significant beams, and a split-level main floor with views overlooking Randolph Street's Restaurant Row. This 3-bed 3-bath 3500+ square foot home was newly renovated with a "warm industrial" decor style and featured in multiple magazines.
The main floor has a large white kitchen with a waterfall island, large reclaimed wood dining table, modern fireplace, kids room, marble bathroom, and an elevated living room with a built-in window bench and cabinetry.
The lofted main bedroom features factory glass windows overlooking the main floor, a private balcony, dressing room, and large bathroom with a spa-like standing tub and large double shower.
The basement features a 40-foot reclaimed wood feature wall, polished concrete floors, built-in office and bookshelves, a large home theater, gym, guest bedroom, laundry room, and third bathroom.
