This mesmerizing high-floor unit at 1555 N Astor, the Gold Coast's northern bookend, almost got passed over thanks to the blinding authority of its upstairs neighbor. The 3,400-square-foot four-bed was listed in January by the original owner for $2M, an ask that has inched down to $1.85M. Occupying the eastern side of the tower's 40th floor, the unit is half the size and one-third the price of the full-floor unit one floor above (still available for $4.45M). The solidly '70s decor may be seen as a deterrent in unforgiving professional circles, but there aren't any real estate pros here a Curbed and we thoroughly dig it. Rippling windows give full northern, southern, and eastern exposures and an incredible sweeping lakefront vista. Buyers also have on hand a baby-blue kitchen, large bedrooms, some ticklish wallpaper, a study, and a bevy of luxurious building amenities.
