One of Bucktown's priciest homes is up for sale—a converted warehouse-turned-mansion on North Leavitt Avenue that was listed this week at $4 million.

The 8,600 square-foot home was converted from a hundred-year-old warehouse into a massive single family home in 2009. The original owners then sold the home for $2.77 million in 2011. Now the home is back on the market, for over $1 million more than that.

The home is located right by the Blue Line and The 606 trail and boasts high-end design features including brick and timber materials, a three-story atrium, a billiard room, a wine cellar a chef's kitchen and an expansive roof deck. Passersby my recognize the home at 1804 N. Leavitt Ave. for its distinctive pink brick exterior windows, which look into an interior courtyard that frames the home's large glass interior windows.

According to the Tribune, the asking price puts the home on par with Bucktown's priciest mansions: the most expensive home purchase on record for Bucktown was a $3.8 million home sold last July.
