Welcome to 1240 N. Lake Shore Dr. #18B
You know you've arrived. Gracious living begins at this enviable Gold Coast address with the intimacy of 2 units per floor. From the moment you exit the marbled elevators & enter this 3BR/2.5BA home, a stunning panorama draws you in; imagine you're high above a never-ending lake of blue green water that disappears into the horizon. As you approach, the sights & sounds that are the vitality and pulse of the city begin to unfold; all manner of outdoor enthusiasts line the shore and sandy curve of Oak Street Beach, historic architecture dots the familiar bend along East LSD and Navy Pier beyond. This impressive wall of windows, spanning the entire width of the home, may have immediately caught your eye but inside, soothing design choices strike the perfect complement. The foyer wall & all doors are appointed in whitewashed, distressed wood paneling that enhances diagonal bleached wood floors throughout the living, dining & common areas. Within the foyer, an oversized, smoky mirror is incorporated into the wall. Ample coat & linen closets line the hallway. The powder room, featuring creamy white finishes, cleverly conceals a stacked W/D behind a mirrored door. The kitchen has double-door, dual access to & from the foyer and DR, an eat-in area and a plantation-shuttered window. Sleek high-lacquer Scavolini cabinets w/built-in pantry, bull-nose Corian counters, under cabinet lighting, a suite of white GE appliances & a herringbone-patterned floor keep it clean and modern. The spacious, carpeted master has 3 abundantly organized closets, including 2 wall-closets and a walk-in, west and north window exposures with pull shades and drapes. The MBA features double undermount sinks in a cultured marble vanity and separate tub & shower. The 2nd BR is large enough to accommodate a desk area as well as an entire suite of bedroom furniture. The organized closet spans an entire wall. The 3rd bedroom is currently used as a study/den. Both BRs are carpeted & feature spectacular west city views. A hall tub/shower bath mimics appointments used in the MBA. Zoned heating is electric w/Aprilaire humidifier. The building has a 5-star reputation & amenities you'd expect including sundeck, gas grills, party room, valet garage parking, car wash and 24-hour door staff. Boasting ultimate walkability, this locale is truly the epicenter of city living. Your choice of restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores & the Magnificent Mile are just around the corner.
