I will never forget that Friday night that my realtor called and said this condo just came open today, we're listing it and we need to go NOW... and so we did! This is it I told her as I walked around, it was located in an old building that had been renovated and the original owner was a carpenter and built an upstairs and a ladder into the wall to get up there... she designed the back splash and added the side by side washer and dryer with extra storage.
The unit is on the top floor of a 6 story building and sits on Michigan Ave - I walked onto balcony (wrap around I might add) and there was lake view... I had to hold down my excitement as there were a few other people walking around and checking it out too. I def would need to update the paint, change up some colors and eventually change out the appliances but I knew this was the place for me! We wrote up the offer, it was accepted and I moved in 1 month later.
I love the space, the view, my neighbors and am so excited to be back home!
|The entry way... I hired a designer to come in and paint this area, the ceilings and my bedroom and bath. This room gets western sun in the afternoon and when I picked this blue mixed with the sunshine makes the room so happy!|
|This is the ladder that was built into the wall to get upstairs... it's unique and again gives it a true city feel.|
|Kitchen and dining room space. I'm changing out the white appliances this year and giving the granite counters a refresh.|
|Another view of the blue wall...this was my move out day.|
|Better view of brick, dining room and balcony door.|
|Here's my building - I like being in a 6 story vs a high rise... my condo is the top balcony.|
|Painted the floor with a diamond design - another view of the window that opens to my bedroom.|
