Situated inside the 1912 building at 199 E. Lake Shore Drive, this well appointed duplex co-op is big on space, views, and magazine-quality decor. At nearly 4,000 square feet, the renovated three-bedroom, four-bathroom home offers high-end finishes—not to mention animal pattern prints—throughout.
Highlights include a formal dining room, new kitchen, separate wet bar, and a walk-in butler’s pantry/wine room. A master suite featuring a large marble-clad bathroom and his and hers home offices on the second level is joined by a pair of additional bedrooms each sporting en-suite baths of their own.
The property features sweeping views of Lake Michigan and Oak Street Beach via its oversized windows and private balcony. While Lake Shore Drive’s beeping car horns and revving motorcycles might be a minor annoyance right now, the home is ideally positioned should a bold, long-term proposal to bury a portion of the busy roadway ever be realized.
The luxury residence is currently seeking $2,999,000 plus monthly co-op fees of $8,890. As with other cooperatives, the monthly payment includes real estate taxes in addition to regular HOA items such as heat, air conditioning, water, gas, and access to building amenities. This particular unit also includes two parking spaces in an attached garage.
