Polished Plot and Classic Tudor Home
With its grand Gothic Revival architecture, polished plot and a classic Tudor sensibility, some might say that the former Playboy mansion is Chicago's most iconic Gold Coast residence. A collection of seven ultra-luxe condos, and one of only two units on the third floor, Unit 3S has been exquisitely renovated for a discerning buyer-and reads like an elegant single-family home. Bespoke by design, this four bedroom/five-half bathroom offers an abundance of space (4300 square feet) across a continuous footprint, starting with a handsome foyer that leads to an elegant living room where wall-to-wall built-ins, a custom bar and a wood-burning fireplace set the stage for refined entertaining. In the dining room, formal feasts find definition from a coffered ceiling, decorative wainscoting, custom drapery and statement lighting that sets myriad moods. In the sublimely chic family room, a second wood-burning fireplace can be found, not to mention built-in bookshelves, custom bamboo blinds and copious natural light. From here, a south-facing outdoor terrace invites morning cappuccinos or evening libations. Over in the home's impressive chef's kitchen, white-on-white custom cabinetry, marble countertops, island seating and wood-wrapped beams make culinary pursuits a charming affair. As for the posh private quarters, each of this home's four large bedrooms feature ensuite baths that boast designer fixtures and flawless finishes (think gilded sconces and fashion-forward window treatments). The primary suite is affluently spacious and flaunts hardwood floors, meticulous millwork, walk-in closets and a gas fireplace-and a five-star hotel-worthy bath with a massive, marble-topped vanity and freestanding soaking tub. A tucked away work-from-home office nook and a perfectly appointed laundry room round out this home's sophisticated lifestyle spaces. Boutique building amenities include manicured gardens, a gated front entry, elevator access, private storage rooms, two attached garage parking spaces, and white-glove management.
