Description

PRICE REDUCED! North and east facing two-bedroom and two-bath Drake Tower apartment has been meticulously renovated. Eleven large windows generate substantial light and provide treetop views overlooking Oak Street Beach and Lake Michigan. The apartment has been flawlessly restored from top to bottom in the classic elegance of Benjamin Marshall's original design. The recent restoration included replacement of all windows with premium, impact windows by Canadian manufacturer Loewen. The wiring is all new throughout the space. Central air conditioning and new ductwork was added including a central steam humidification system. The original millwork was stripped and repainted, original hardware was restored and new quarter-sawn oak hardwood floors were installed. A new classic white cabinet kitchen with soapstone counters, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances was included in the renovation. A RARE BONUS NOT FOUND IN OTHER APARTMENTS IN THIS TIER IS ADDITIONAL SQUARE FOOTAGE WHICH HAS BEEN INCORPORATED FROM A FORMER STORAGE ROOM INTO A BUTLER'S PANTRY ADJOINING THE KITCHEN. It features a wine refrigerator and extensive storage. Both bathrooms were also renovated with high-end materials in a classic aesthetic. Building amenities include restored lobby, uniformed door, elevator and maintenance staff, large gym, terrace, wine storage, attached parking ($200 per month for up to two vehicles) and on-site manager and engineer.
