There are quite a few historic condos that line Lake Shore Drive. The massive but elegant buildings sometimes offer a window into the past, like this Gold Coast example built in 1924. Fortunately, this unit has a great deal of original details intact and underwent a careful restoration. It’s listed for $825,000.
Inside you will find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and about 2,200 square feet of space. The entryway features an illuminated barrel ceiling. Detailed, thick crown molding and polished wood floors fill the space. The living room faces northeast with views of Lake Michigan and Oak Street Beach. French doors open to a European-style mahogany-paneled library with a working marble fireplace. And if you have guests, the space converts into a suite with a Murphy bed and hidden bathroom.
The full service building has a 24-hour doorman, maintenance staff, a gym, and a few common spaces. The entrance lobby is stately with wood paneling and vintage details like a golden elevator dial. Plus, there are no messy mailboxes. All post is hand delivered straight to your door. The price for all this? Assessments would be $2,042 per month.
