Located near the border of Chicago’s Kenwood and East Hyde Park neighborhoods, this bright two-bedroom, high-rise condo offers lots to like at a relatively reasonable asking price of $275,000.
The residence sits on the 21st floor of 5000 S. East End Avenue, a handsome 1928 tower designed by architect Robert S. DeGolyer. The historic 28-story building stood as the South Side’s tallest until 1965 and was converted from co-ops to condominiums in 2011.
Inside, the unit features a traditional, sea foam-colored living room with old-school moldings, built-in bookcases and cabinets, views of Lake Michigan, and an ornate fireplace. In addition to its two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home also includes a striking blue combination dining room and TV room just off the kitchen.
The property is currently seeking $275,000 plus $1,614 in monthly assessments covering amenities such as a private garden, library, fitness center, and two furnished lobbies with 24-hour door staff. Reserved parking at an adjacent lot will run an additional $165 per month.
