The building has valet parking, too.

The Gold Coast neighborhood holds some of Chicago’s first mansions for the city’s wealthiest families. After Potter Palmer moved to there in 1882, more millionaires followed suit.

If you take a walk down State Parkway, you can see some of the homes from that time period. This particular building was built in 1926 and operates as a co-op. The unit is likely similar to its original layout as it has a third bedroom off the kitchen which might have been used as servants quarters (it’s office now). The kitchen features a cute checkered backsplash with rounded edge wood cabinets.

Throughout the home there are beautiful built-in cabinets, large paned windows, and well-maintained hardwood floors. There’s a barrel ceiling in the entryway, a delicately detailed fireplace mantel, and glass doorknobs.

The full-service building at 1320 State Parkway has assessment fees of $2,685 per month. It’s listed for $549,000 with Brad Lippitz of Compass.
