Old-school two-bedroom co-op on Lake Shore Drive seeks $1.65M

New, 1 comment

The home’s fancy finishes come with an equally rich monthly assessment

For buyers with a traditional sense of style looking for fresh digs in Chicago’s tony Gold Coast neighborhood, this newly-listed co-operative is likely to check plenty of boxes. Situated in the well-maintained 1912 building at 999 N. Lake Shore Drive, the two-bedroom home features hardwood floors, ornamental ceiling moldings, warm wood paneling, a stone fireplace, and views of Lake Michigan.

While its location on the building’s second floor might be a bit close to the horns and unmuffled motorcycles of Lake Shore Drive, the unit also comes with access to a rooftop deck featuring even better water views. Though the $1,650,000 asking price may seem like a relative bargain at first glance, the co-op includes a $5,303 monthly assessment which is pretty steep — even for the Gold Coast.
