Secret modern in North Center

A few weeks back I toured the property at 3434 N industrial building for sale at $765,000 (listed by Garret Realty and Development).  Our client is interested in completing a modern home renovation.... or an existing ultra modern home on a wide lot.

The property sits on a 50' x 123' lot providing a rare wide footprint to create a custom, industrial living space.  This has been done to several properties along Ravenswood and it's intersecting east-west streets.

 Looking at the property going south. 
There is a large yard under the Brown Line tracks that backs up to the west of the property that belongs to the neighbor.  This large open space allows great light into the main level, an added second story and interior courtyard if desired at 3434 N Ravenswood.

The same day, we toured the adjacent property to the north at 1801 W ultra modern residential renovation of the same type of industrial building.  Sorry, I took no interior photos. It's easy to pass by this building on Cornelia and never realize its a fantastic residential home...super secret modern indeed.  As far as my personal design taste is concerned, one of the top 5 pleasing homes I've been in.
