Modernized 19th Century Barn-Loft in Highland Park's Garvanza Neighborhood Renting for $1,900


Say, were you raised in a barn? No? Well, wouldja like to live in one? If so, this Craigslist posting may be of interest: "Beautiful loft property sitting on the upper floors of a barn on a historic 19th century property. Property consists of nearly 2 acres, and is shared with 3 other historic residences from the 1800s. The loft has modern amenities such as central heating and air, kitchen appliances, including Bosch dishwasher, stainless refrigerator, and high-end plumbing fixtures. It also has a washer and dryer in the unit. The loft floor plan consists of a kitchen, 1 bath, 1 bedroom, living room/dining room and a mezzanine-level artist loft/den. Walnut hardwood floors, ancient marble tile in kitchen, Carerra marble bath with shower, period lighting, and a period wood-panel and rustic beamed ceiling give the space beautiful, unique character. Additionally, it comes with a private patio."

In the negative column, the rustic rental is rather petite, measuring just 750 square feet, with a bedroom the listing describes as "on the smaller/European scale." If that doesn't deter you, monthly rent is $1,900.
