1110 N. Lake Shore Drive Penthouse #37NS

1110 N. Lake Shore Drive Penthouse #37NS | $1,000,000 | Chicago, IL

This could be an incredibly sexy penthouse. Plans from important architect George Larson include: creating a private entrance foyer with a glass wall, so that you see straight through to the lake when you step off the elevator. Creating a large, open kitchen-family room and entertaining space running along 60 of the 80′ of the apartment that faces the lake; and then relocating the master bedroom suite so that it also has dramatic lake views. Adding a his and hers bath and a private gym to the Master suite. With three additional bedrooms and laundry room in the rear.

Cabanas, umbrellas and towels – everything a first class beach should have on hand. Reminds me of St. Tropez.

There is beautiful custom-built-in heavy oak cabinetry in the Penthouse. This would look stunning refinished to a sophisticated grey color and even a creamy white.

Not a bad view from the rear of the property. These buildings glitter in the evening and resemble stars at night.
