Luxury Illinois Penthouse For Sale For The First Time in 45-Years
This penthouse in Chicago is for sale for the first time in 45-years, and the views are stunning and worth every penny.
The Chicago Penthouse has six bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, a 2-car garage, and when you see these photos of this penthouse you are going to be envious of whoever buys it. Views stretching from Navy Pier and Lake Michigan, this $12 million penthouse is stunning. It takes up the entire top floor of the building (which includes a grass "yard") with more than 8,000 square feet on the inside and 5,000 square feet for outdoor living. Looking at the photos you wouldn’t want to break anything in this house, it all looks so expensive and top of the line in statues and decorations.
The outside is amazing, this insider (for me anyway) is a bit much and in my opinion, could use a little updating. Don't get me wrong it’s a beautiful, grand penthouse, but it’s not very modern (for me). It has a beautiful limestone staircase, large ceilings, handcrafted doors, but just needs a bit of updating. Or, you could just leave it and live in one of Chicago's most pristine penthouses in the city.
I could hang out all day in the outdoor space and just take in the unobstructed views of Navy Pier, the lake, and the Chicago skyline. Just think you would have a perfect seat for the Navy Pier fireworks, and boats on the lake. And you get your own private elevator to the top of your penthouse; pretty awesome to say the least. The house has also been owned by some very important families in Chicago.
Relax and Enjoy the Bright City Lights as the Sun Sets from the West-Facing Terraces. Throughout its history, 1500 Lake Shore Drive has been Home to Many Prominent Chicago Families, Including the Wrigleys, McCormicks, and Fields. Now it's Your Turn.
