    Perfect for sophisticated entertaining and luxurious family living in a secure and architecturally significant building, an outstanding 3,500-square-foot apartment on East Lake Shore Drive is ready for a new chapter. The stunning entrance hall and dramatic archways usher you into a most excellent floor plan. To the right, the views treat you to a cityscape portrait sweeping down Lake Shore Drive, drinking in the entire shoreline to the north, with its crystalline waters of Lake Michigan, white sandy beaches, and sparkling lights at night. The library lies just beyond the living room, where gorgeous built-in bookshelves and an elaborate bar set the tone. Three spacious ensuite bedrooms reside in this wing. At the other end of the apartment, a massive dining room seats 20 easily, under the dazzle of an immense crystal chandelier. Double doors open to Juliet balconies. The inspired de Giulio kitchen features a Wolf range and a Sub-Zero integrated fridge, plus a center island with seating to view the ever-changing sights of the city as it transitions from day to night. The magnificent kitchen, powder room and laundry room, refashioned in 2006, were followed by an elaborate primary bath and closet redesign in 2018 - which won two Crystal Key awards for best-designed bathroom and the best overall remodeling project in Chicagoland. An office filled with sunlight finish the floor plan. In the primary bath, Pratt and Larsen custom tile moldings adorn the entire space, while a 2.5-inch wainscot band and crown molding define the space. Among the most striking embellishments: 18-karat gold faucets and antique terracotta dragon gargoyles that emit steam in the shower room. The timeless feel of the apartment extends to the Renaissance-style building itself. Featuring a 24-hour doorman and heavy wrought-iron and glass doors, the main lobby impresses with a striking 30-foot ceiling decorated with painted plaster and modeled after the El Escorial palace outside of Madrid. A location on one of the city's most prominent streets puts you within steps of the Magnificent Mile and all of the best restaurants, shopping, hotels and cultural pursuits. Extraordinary location. Extraordinary value.
