Open house: Live by the lake

Written by

If you have the money, why not make it rain all summer long? This two-bedroom beauty on the border of Gold Coast and Old Town has it all. One of the city’s best views? Check. Indoor pool? Check. Quick stroll to the beach? It’s within walking distance of two. 

The apartment is a corner unit with a panorama of the city: To the east is Lake Michigan, while the cityscape stretches north. The light that pours in from the ample windows pairs nicely with the gleaming hardwood floors throughout, and the living room’s sliding doors lead to a private balcony.

But you may not even notice the spectacular view when you see the killer kitchen. For starters, there’s a wine fridge. Stainless steel appliances are beautifully set alongside the sleek slate gray cabinetry, counter space abounds and an island gives extra seating and dining space for the summer get-togethers you’ll be having. Each of the bedrooms has generous build-outs and walk-in closets, and there are two bathrooms, providing privacy for roommates or guests. Plus, some of Chicago’s best food, drinks, music and comedy is just a short jaunt away. At $2,900 per month, it’s a worthwhile splurge.
