Enjoy sweeping lake views and vintage elegance in this lovely 1 bedroom-1 bath co-op apartment in the historic Aquitania. Built in 1923 originally as luxury housing for the booming Chicago film industry, the Aquitania brims with period architectural details and stately features and exudes the sophistication of truly a golden age of style and design. Starting from the formal reception foyer of the apartment you enter the gracious living room with its dramatic views east over Margate Park and Lake Michigan. Plaster paneling and crown molding add refined elegance and gleaming hardwood floors run throughout the space. Next, a luxury rarely found in today's apartments, a formal dining room. This space also features beautiful period trim, elegant wall and modern chandelier lighting, and can accommodate a large table and storage furniture. The wonderfully appointed kitchen features white Calacatta marble countertops, all stainless steel appliances, classic wood cabinets, glass mosaic backsplash, under-cabinet LED lighting, and a butler's bar complete with beverage fridge. The large bedroom features a walk-in closet and west-facing windows that bring in great afternoon light. The bathroom has all original fixtures including white subway wall tile, pedestal sink, medicine cabinet, and cast iron tub. A smart storage corridor connects the room directly to the foyer with an additional closet and large built-in storage and display unit. Building amenities include 24 door staff, mailroom, laundry facility, bike room, and additional storage rooms. Your monthly assessment pays for everything- building operating expenses and maintenance, management, gas, heat, electricity, RCN cable and Internet, and real estate taxes. Building is pet-friendly and close to dog parks and the dog beach. Enjoy life in vintage elegance with all the wonderful conveniences of beautiful Margate Park and the vibrant Uptown neighborhood. Great shopping and dining abound on nearby Sheridan, Argyle, and Broadway.
