Eclectic Flair

This historically significant building on Lake Shore Drive is an exquisite example of turn-of-the-century architecture in Chicago.  The homeowner bought the condo, which was dated and in dire need of renovations, with the thought of modernizing it while staying true to the characteristic architecture that the building exudes.  Through thoughtful design and attention to detail, the fully renovated condo space now exemplifies a classic elegance with an eclectic flair.  One of the major changes is a new, large kitchen that opens to the living and dining spaces, making it perfect for entertaining.  The homeowner’s unique collection of books, sculptures, and paintings are artfully displayed throughout the condo, highlighting the sophisticated millwork.
