A 5,300-square-foot Gold Coast duplex with intense French Baroque decor two doors from the old Playboy Mansion would command a much higher ask than $1.75M were it not for the scorching assessments endemic to vintage co-ops ($4,523/month in this case). As is typical of the ornate Spanish Revival building at 1320 N State, the unit's living room boasts a double-height cathedral ceiling with fireplace, balcony and an immense chandelier (excluded from sale). A mix of wood panelling, busy wallpaper, and murals line the duplex's walls. The interiors, which include four lavish bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, run the gamut from dark and intimate to folksy to regal. Straddling the 12th and 13th floors, the place musters lake views from its two-block remove.
