Lovingly renovated to honor the past and embrace the future- this classic pre-war apartment was gutted to the studs and rebuilt in 2016. All new windows, floors, and air conditioning, using vintage hardware, solid wood doors, and re-envisioned archways and moldings. These apartments are known for their gracious and ample public rooms- the living room with gas fireplace and Juliette balcony (facing north) are stunning focal points. Note the east wall - facing Lake Michigan - where the curved corners demonstrate craftsmanship and luxury - perfect for a sitting area or a grand piano. The dining room features custom china cabinets matched with a sparkling Swarovski chandelier, offering 2 exposures to lake views. The kitchen and butler's pantry are a chef's dream- quartzite counters and backsplash with Wolf appliances... note the pot filler, steam oven, convection oven, and gas cooktop. The warm walnut wood breakfast bar and lighted floating shelves are a lovely juxtaposition to the clean bright cabinetry, and the leaded glass window adds a brilliant touch. The bathrooms are a nod to the past while utilizing gorgeous contemporary finishes - quartzite that evokes marble, subway tile, and custom maple cabinetry. The third bedroom, originally the maids room, offers laundry and a laundry sink, and is the perfect office/guest room. Just 2 units per floor, this marvelous residence in one of Lake Shore Drive's premier co-op buildings offers attentive service, a marvelous fitness room, self-service dog wash, and patio area for grilling/dining. The rich patina of the lobby's woodwork is exactly what you'd expect in a DeGolyer-designed 1926 building-incomparable... this home is move-in ready and waiting for the steward who will enjoy it for many years to come!
