It's not often that a new space gets listed in Fugard & Knapp's 229 E Lake Shore Drive building, a central and "prestigious" co-op in the Gold Coast's landmark East Lake Shore Drive District. So naturally, the zen decor for this renovated and restored, $2 million, tenth-floor listing seems especially fitting. Light permeates the almost-century-old space, which includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a library that opens up to a broad living room with unobstructed lake and city views. A large, sunny eat-in kitchen adds a contemporary flourish to the home, which retains ample hardwood flooring and molding throughout to connect it to its historical character. Though the $6,645 monthly HOA fees are substantial, they are all-inclusive; a small price to pay for a bright slice of nirvana.
