Property Description

Calling all nature lovers! This bright, unique second floor unit overlooking the lake and one of the last private beaches in Chicago enjoys deeded garage parking, in-unit laundry, boat room, additional storage, gym, and sprawling lakeside terrace. Homes here at "The Breakers" are rarely available, and for good reason. With hardwood floors and crown molding throughout, exposed brick accentuates the vintage charm of the spacious living room while stainless steel gleams in the open, airy, bright kitchen. An oversized master suite enjoys a suitably large bathroom and humongous, windowed walk-in closet large enough to double as a nursery, office, or library. Owners here enjoy access to a private 5,000 square foot terrace (open 24/7!) that boasts dining tables, chaise lounges, community grills, and a smoker. What's more, the included, deeded parking space leads out to a hidden, shaded park overlooking the lake that neighbors use as a meeting place for dogs and friends alike. Building has just completed major tuckpointing and boiler update (yes, you'll enjoy radiator heat too!). Other perks include a grand, art-adorned marble lobby, bike storage, and a not-yet-met rental cap that allows this to become a smart investment after only a year of ownership. Pet friendly and near all modes of public transportation, restaurants, shopping, Northwestern, and Loyola, this gem on the lake is as rare as it is impressive.
