Sitting in the long shadow of Lucien Lagrange's new ultra-luxe Lincoln Park 2520, the old Marlborough building simply refuses to be outclassed. It was designed by Robert De Golyer, the same architect behind a slew of elegant highrises along the lakefront, the art-deco Powhatan on the south side chief among them. And it just so happens that this fully-renovated, 8th-floor penthouse is on the market for $2.1M, after a modest $100K price chop. The 3,800-square feet home spreads out generously over a single floor. Its bright interiors exude a subdued elegance and get their fair share of morning sun. There's also custom millwork, hardwood floors, new windows, designer lighting, SS-apps, and a wine closet. And with eastern and southern exposures, expect some glorious views of the park and skyline.
