On Roscoe and Lake Shore Drive, this beaux-arts stunner sure knows how to occupy a corner. It was designed in 1922 by Peter Webber, an associate of celebrated architect Daniel Burnham. We're here for this 9th floor penthouse, on the market for the first time in ten years, with $210K worth of appreciation to show for it. The 2,100-square foot interiors, designed by Kara Mann, are a lot more urbane than the other units we've seen in the building. The living room goes anti-vintage with contempo furnishings and striking black walls. This place also delivers a separate office w/built-ins, walnut floors, crown moldings, and a fireplace. The south-facing unit doesn't capture the lake or Belmont Harbor. But fret not, you'll still have killer city views from your private 1,000-square foot terrace. The ask? $1.275M.
