Well-heeled home buyers should take notice as a rarely-available four-bedroom, six-bath co-op overlooking Lake Shore Drive hits the market for the first time in recent memory. Offering views of Lake Michigan from nearly every room, the renovated duplex is laid out with all public rooms on the first level and private rooms above.

In addition to the views and a great location, other standout features include hardwood floors, crown moldings, updated bathrooms, spacious walk-in master closets, and a large laundry room. Perhaps most striking is the co-op’s lacquer blue home office.

Built in 1929, the 17-story, 29-unit building at 1540 Lake Shore Drive is considered one of the Gold Coast’s most prestigious addresses. Its neo-French provincial exterior from architects Huszagh & Hill features three projecting lake-facing turrets as well as a slate roof.

Available for the first time in a number of years, this 6,000-square-foot home listed yesterday seeking a cool $4 million. The co-op’s total assessment—which also includes taxes—is unsurprisingly pricey at $10,082 per month. According to the listing notes, parking is located next door.
