Tucked away in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast, this Georgian-style home was commissioned by the legendary Potter Palmer towards the end of the 19th century. It has been kept in immaculate condition ever since; a renovation in 1990 saw modern features added without sacrificing its original charm. Once inside, you'll be treated to high ceilings with decorative crown moldings and arches, curved bay windows, and elegant living spaces suitable for entertaining-or for just curling up with a book.The kitchen boasts cherry cabinets and granite countertops, as well as a wood-burning fireplace perfect for chilly evenings. Step outside to find a secluded paved patio that extends the living/entertaining space outdoors. On the upper levels, there are 3 large bedrooms, including a primary suite, and a library. The 4.5 bathrooms make it perfect for both residents and guests. On the top floor, there is a solarium with views of Lake Michigan. Throughout the house, five authentic wood-burning fireplaces remain as a focal point for each room. On the lower level of the home, you will find ample storage, as well as a workshop and laundry area. Modern upgrades include new windows and mechanical systems. The home has a prestigious Astor Street address and offers easy access to beaches, yachting, biking trails, and running paths. Michigan Avenue and downtown Chicago are steps away, with world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment. Parking is plentiful in the area - the current owners park in a garage spot right across the street.
