“Chicago Fire” fans who thought Kelly Severide’s luxe loft home in the show’s first season seemed a little outside of the price range of a Chicago firefighter were right.

The 4,000-square-foot West Loop loft that Taylor Kinney’s character shared with an ill-fated paramedic played by Lauren German is on the market for $1.78 million.

And if the movie theater, private rooftop deck and signature spiral staircase aren’t enough to draw interest, maybe the idea that it hosted the handsome Kinney and his former fiancée–known to a few people out there as Lady Gaga–will.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom loft at 411 South Sangamon Street is owned by Raymond Lyle, who founded a number of companies including Eat Purely, Topify, Viglink, L4P and Driving Revenue, which was acquired by Google Ventures in 2011. He now serves as chief marketing officer for bed-in-a-box company Molecule.

Listing agent Rafael Murillo of Compass said Lyle and his wife combined two units in the building into the larger condo, which includes a 900-square-foot master suite.

The unit was used as a backdrop during filming of the Dick Wolf series, and the inconvenience of the production came with benefits for Lyle, including getting to meet Kinney, Lady Gaga, Wolf and others from the show, Murillo said.

“He thinks it was one of the coolest experiences,” Murillo said.

The open-concept living and dining rooms span nearly 50 feet, and the kitchen features high-end appliances and quartz countertops. The unit comes with an existing 1,200-square-foot outdoor space that can be expanded over the former second unit.

The movie theater has a 120-inch screen, wet bar, candy bar and beverage center. One of the bathrooms has a $7,000 Kohler Numi toilet, Murillo said.

“I don’t know how many firefighters can afford that, but that’s TV,” Murillo said with a laugh.
