1542 North Wood St.

For This Week’s Find, UrbanTurf found a duplex in Wicker Park that sits in a two-flat that dates back to the late 1800s. Where a strong Polish community once thrived, the building is now surrounded by BYOB sushi restaurants, bars, and trendy stores fill the streets.

The loft-style abode was rehabbed in the late 1990s, and has modern touches including an updated kitchen with a large breakfast bar, a master bath with a double bowl vanity, vaulted ceilings, and a private roof deck with views of the city skyline in the distance. Remnants of the era when it was originally built remain, including oversized windows, exposed brick, and a wood-burning fireplace. Aside from its interior, the pad is within ten minutes of the Loop, has low monthly assessment fees, and garage parking is included.
