About 1540 North Lake Shore Drive 14-15n

Exquisitely designed and masterfully executed, this two-story, 7,200 sq ft 4-5 bed/7 bath (4 full baths, 3 half baths) property in the residences at 1540 N. Lake Shore Dr. lives like a single-family home. Completely renovated and boasting panoramic views of the lake, Lincoln Park and Cardinal Mansion, the 1926 pre-war co-op sits between Burton Place and Lincoln Park in the Gold Coast on one of Chicago's most prestigious blocks. From moment one in the home's 38-foot-long formal foyer, Unit 14-15N flaunts its first-class finishes and details, including limestone arches, bespoke millwork, marble and hardwood floors, custom wallcoverings and high ceilings. The main level effortlessly unfolds across a range of elevated living and entertaining spaces, including a grand, lake-facing living room with wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room with contemporary wainscoting and more lovely lake views, and a standalone wet bar that lives off of the foyer/living room that's perfect for parties. Past a proper butler's pantry with a sink and wine storage, the chef's kitchen stuns with custom cabinetry, stone countertops, a marble backsplash, stainless Sub-Zero appliances - four ovens, an eight-burner stovetop, two large refrigerators, and two dishwashers - and connectivity to a light-filled breakfast room. At the back of the house, the main level also features a luxe family room and a large guest bedroom with a chicly appointed, en-suite bath. Up a curvaceous floating staircase with custom brass railings that extends from the main gallery, the second level presents two, secondary en-suite bedrooms with walk-in closets, a rec room with a second kitchen, an exercise room that could be converted into a fifth bedroom, two cedar closets for clothing storage, a second-floor laundry, and a magnificent primary suite. Separated by a long hallway that's lined with built-in bookshelves, the primary suite features a spacious bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace, a 30-foot-long dressing room, an owners' study or sitting room, and a marble-clad, en-suite spa bath with a dual vanity, a large soaking tub, and a glass-encased shower. Additional unit details include custom wallcoverings, designer light fixtures, custom blinds and draperies, custom built-ins throughout, surplus storage, embedded speakers with Sonos audio, and upgraded mechanicals: central air, a humidifier and 800-amp electrical service. (Of note: Each room has individually controlled thermostats for HVAC.) Pet-friendly and professionally managed, the building also features a fitness center and a 24-hour door staff. Convenient valet parking next door, as well as door-side service right at 1540 during dedicated hours. Steps from Lincoln Park, bike paths, the beaches of Lake Michigan and the Lincoln Park Zoo, not to mention a short stroll to the Mag Mile, fine dining and iconic cultural institutions, 1540 N. Lake Shore Dr., Unit 14-15N, offers world-class refinement with the very best of Chicago right outside your front door.
