    WOW! Designed by architect John A. Nyden and completed in 1917 as one of the earliest buildings in the area constructed on the landfill from the Great Chicago Fire. The brick and stone terra-cotta facade building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Starting in December 2013 and finishing 13 months later, 23 trades-truly old world artisans-completely restored this 3900 square foot, single floor home to its original vintage beauty and charm. Usually reserved for Co-ops, this is a rare vintage Condominium. The beautiful lobby welcomes you as you make your way to the wood paneled elevator. Key only access provides security as you are taken to your full floor residence. Once off the elevator, you step into your private front foyer decorated with original marble flooring and baseboard, English wallpaper, large cove molding and a ceiling embellished with bell-flowered plaster onlays. Enter the secure door into the gallery which is flanked by Honduran mahogany and tastefully lit with LED up lighting showcasing the 19th century French Empire style plaster onlays. Move to the front of the home into the Living Room decorated in Williamsburg yellow paint with white poplar onlays. The room has a fully renovated, remote controlled fireplace with white Italian marble surround hand carved in 18th century France. Double French mahogany doors lead to the Great Room. Also finished in Williamsburg yellow paint with white poplar onlays, the room is a great place to relax. Across from the Great Room is the Library with views of Lake Michigan. Paneled with Honduran mahogany, the room is filled with plenty of shelves for book collectors, a dry bar with cabinetry and a gas fireplace. The spacious second bedroom and full bathroom with Kohler hand painted sink can be thoughtfully closed off with 2 doors to create its own private suite. Moving back through the Gallery with closets and powder room access hidden behind matching mahogany doors, you arrive at the the Dining Room. The Dining Room has matching oak floors with herringbone design, plaster onlays and Williamsburg yellow paint mirroring those found in the Living Room. The kitchen is off the Dining Room and has a French Country design aesthetic. Counters and backsplash are Gray granite and porcelain and there is in cabinet and under cabinet lighting with floor to ceiling cabinets providing extensive storage space. The third bedroom contains it's own en-suite bathroom and is one of many places with lead diamond pattern and Belgium etched glass for privacy. There is also access to the Back Library which provides more shelving and cabinets for storage. The Primary bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom, gas fireplace, and custom walk in closet. There are 3 zones of air conditioning, including a unit dedicated solely to the Primary Bedroom. Radiators in all rooms, except the bathrooms, are controlled by a state of the art thermostat allowing each room temperature to be set independently. There are also 2 electronic air cleaners for air purification and to assist in minimizing dust accumulation. Throughout the home the original radiator covers were restored or custom mahogany with custom matching grills were incorporated. All original windows in the front of the home were brought to original condition with chains stripped of paint, ropes replaced and latches upgraded. Most windows have programmable remote controlled Hunter Douglas shades. The entire residence has been wired to transform 19th century living into 21st century living with all copper wiring, new electric service, wireless internet and set up for iPad controlled Smart Home living installed and supported remotely by ABT of Glenview. Rental parking available in adjacent buildings.
