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.
