A three-bed penthouse condo in Lake View near Belmont Harbor with "sophisticated" and "purely fabulous" finishes is on its way off the market with a contract nearly in hand. But just in case of collapse, you may want to stand at the ready: this place has the buxom interiors and high-end appointments of a renovated vintage mansion. Ebony floors, new molding, custom lighting, chef's kitchen, and a sun room are topped by a 400-square-foot private roof deck. Paintings, scuplture, and Warhol prints help compose the space, so please, please, leave those Zep posters behind. On the market since mid-October, the asking price is $650K.
