Mark Saxenmeyer, formerly a special projects reporter for Chicago Fox affiliate WFLD, recently placed his two-bedroom condo in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago on the market for $339,000.
Saxenmeyer left the station in December 2010 after 17 years of working with the Fox affiliate for a position in St. Paul, Minnesota, with ABC affiliate KSTP.
The 1,200-square-foot home features a 12-foot tin ceiling, a lofted den and a rooftop deck. The condo is three levels and has three large picture windows that overlook a park. A one-car garage is also included. Based on what he told the Chicago Tribune's Elite Street real estate section, Saxenmeyer was sorry to pack up moving boxes
and leave the home.
"When I walked into this place back in 2005, I fell in love with it immediately," Saxenmeyer told Elite Street. "I'd looked at so many cookie-cutter apartment-type condos, and this was something unique. Each of the units in that building is completely original and different. It's a really funky space."
According to Saxenmeyer, the wood floors are original and he and his partner remodeled the doors with solid oak finishes.
Saxenmeyer purchased the six-room unit in 2005 for $359,000.
The average value of a home in Chicago is $162,800, according to Zillow.
