Part of the appeal of midcentury modern is the fresh-looking timelessness of its designs. Take for example the sleek, like-new appearance of the original 1959 robin’s egg blue kitchen featured in this two-bedroom high-rise condo. While most of the Lakeview home is renovated with new floors and updated appliances, special care was taken to preserve the kitchen’s steel cabinetry as well as the retro terrazzo tile work and ceramic sinks in its two bathrooms.
The building at 3600 N. Lake Shore is situated just west of Waveland Park, Belmont Harbor, and the Bill Jarvis Bird Sanctuary. It features amenities such as valet parking, 24-hour door staff, fitness center, and a lushly landscaped private courtyard with grilling stations. When combined with two garage spaces and dramatic views of Lake Michigan, the unit offers a lot at its current asking price of $339,900.
