Midway up Lake View's Beaux Arts classic Le Giffon building is this gorgeous vintage one-bed facing east over Belmont Harbor. Newly qualified for admission to Curbed's Under $300K Club of exceptional and grounded properties, the 1,050-square-foot unit was originally priced at $400K in August of last year. Let's list its merits, shall we? The 96-year-old condo shows off a host of original architectural finishes like red oak parquet floors, crown moldings, and custom millwork. An entry foyer opens to an elliptical living room with bowed-out windows to the lake. The bedroom features a neat built-in desk space, and the kitchen is brand new. Also have a gander at the common roof and ultra-ornate building lobby. How much again? $300K with monthly assessments of $802.
