Well Look at That Listing: "House on the roof, literally!"

It's been awhile since we've highlighted some Sloop residential real estate, but this one is so unique we had to spill some digital ink.  The address is 714 S. Dearborn st. Unit 9PH and it's in the heart of Printers Row, but the unique thing is its orientation (via the listing):

House on the roof, literally! Perched on top of the historic Printers Row building this two-level penthouse is waiting for your great design ideas.

If you're walking down Dearborn and you've looked up in the past, you probably have noticed that the top of this historic building has siding that doesn't exactly jive with the brick style of everything below.  

Well apparently that's because there is a house sitting on top!

The interior is a little dated, but if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind property in the Sloop (and the city) - this could be it:

The unit is listed at $850K which ain't cheap, but also isn't crazy for a house on top of a historic building.  That said, HOA fees are high (almost $1K a month) and apparently doesn't include parking.

Regardless - cool property and worth a look if that's your sort of thing!
