A rare opportunity to own a lavish Gold Coast penthouse has presented itself at 1500 N. Lake Shore Drive. What some are calling “the most astonishing penthouse ever built in the city of Chicago,” the six-bedroom, 8,000 square foot duplex hit the market for an equally astonishing asking price of $17 million.
Occupying the entire 24th and 25th floors of 1500 N. Lake Shore Drive, the unit hitting the market is especially significant given it has only had three owners since the
building’s construction back in 1929.
Interior finishes include vaulted ceilings, direct elevator access into a grand formal entry, a 40-foot long walnut paneled gallery hall, 20’ high original coffered ceilings, a library, original bronze hardware, hand-carved doors, and even a partial third level with a drawing room.
Outdoor spaces include a 3,000 square foot, east-facing manicured yard and an additional 2,000 square foot deck on the north and west sides of the building.
