Penthouse condos in Chicago’s tony Gold Coast neighborhood rarely become available. Rarer still is such a home being offered for anything less than seven digits, which is what makes this example atop 100 E. Walton Street especially noteworthy.
Spanning nearly 2,500 square feet across two floors, the corner residence features two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a spiral staircase, and views of Lake Michigan and the landmarked Palmolive Building. According to the listing notes, the home was previously owned by Robert Edelman, original owner and developer of the 1972 building.
The brightly lit duplex listed in late January for $649,000 before raising its asking price to $709,000 on Wednesday. Even with the latest bump, the home is arguably still a relative bargain given its size, sweeping views, and proximity to the Mag Mile. Building amenities include an attached garage, fitness center, and rooftop pool deck.
