    Spectacular one-of-a-kind

    Spectacular, one-of-a-kind, historically significant and available for the first time in 20 years. 1205 N. Astor is an iconic piece of Chicago's rich architectural history. This 7,000-square-foot bilevel penthouse is perched above a classic building on the northeast corner of Astor and Division Streets in the Gold Coast, a building that was designed by Benjamin Marshall in 1911 (the architect behind The Drake Hotel). The exterior finds sophistication from Gilded Age composition, including a red brick facade with Juliet balconies, a wrought iron privacy fence, and a charming terra-cotta columned Georgian entryway. Accessed via its own private entry and elevator, the 5 bed/7 bath home begins with an entrance hall that sets a discerning tone with beautiful millwork, espresso hardwood floors, an ornate wallcovering and fanciful light fixtures. Professionally updated and designed throughout, the main level's living and entertaining spaces are truly breathtaking, and boast an endless amount of inheritable accents: luxe drapery, crystal chandeliers, period-appropriate sconces, handcrafted built-ins and more. From the grand living room and library to the formal dining room and character-filled family room, each and every room looks like it was plucked from the pages of Architectural Digest, including a deluxe chef's kitchen with marble countertops, a professional grade appliances suite and an adjacent breakfast room with skylight. Past a gorgeous gallery hall with peaked 20-foot-high skylights, the home's private quarters present two secondary ensuite bedrooms, each with its own sunny disposition. The primary suite finds sanctuary on the opposite side of the main level and features a custom dressing room and a lovely spa bath with dual vanity and walk-in shower. Downstairs, a billiards room and study add to the family-friendly footprint, in addition to two additional ensuite bedrooms and a kitchenette for extended-stay guests. Further amenities include three private terraces, four fireplaces, a handsome work-from-home office, two laundry rooms and a meticulously landscaped, 3,000-square-foot roof deck with full outdoor kitchen. Building amenities include the aforementioned private elevator and two spacious storage rooms. Strolling distance to the lakefront and all of the world-class dining and shopping that downtown Chicago has to offer, not to mention steps from the Division Street Farmers Market, 1205 N. Astor Street is a highly rare, once-in-a-lifetime piece of real estate. (Of note: The sale of this penthouse property includes a studio condo across the street with two parking spaces and access to pool.)
