Welcome to the stunning penthouse of the Gold Coast's Astor Tower, a mid-century former hotel designed by the modernist Bertrand Goldberg. This skyline sanctuary, with breathtaking city & lake views, is a masterpiece of a remodel for those that seek out timeless minimalist & modern architecture. The half floor urban pied-a-terre, thoughtfully designed for space to maximize the footprint, has been opened to expose the incredible views all along the curtain wall. The limestone floors light the home, drawing the eye outside, while the laurel wood elements throughout warms & unifies the interior. The smartly planned space offers versatility by using a series of pocket & telescoping doors, as room dividers, to provide privacy and openness depending on the situation. The sophisticated kitchen boasts chestnut hued cabinets, high end appliances from Sub Zero, Gaggenau & Miele, gorgeous Carrara marble counter tops & back splash and a concealed pantry. The open loft-like living space with an 11' credenza provides fantastic storage and a marble wall that divides the living room with the entrance. The primary suite features a laurel bed wall with built-in floating night tables, door panels that slide to separate or combine with the bathroom, impressive stonework surrounding the walk-in shower & soaking tub and a huge organized walk-in closet. A ceiling mounted sliding panel door offers the ability to screen off a 2nd bedroom from the living area includes an integrated desk, a hidden TV and a built-in floating settee that is actually a hideaway sleeper. Other features like a nicely appointed marble-lined guest bathroom, concealed storage throughout, state-of-the-art sound system, washer & dryer and garage parking makes this the home for the most discerning buyer with exquisite taste! The well managed full-service building with 24hr door staff, on-site management & maintenance, a fitness room, awesome rooftop deck with 360 degree views, is steps to CTA buses/El, dining, shopping, nightlife, Michigan Ave., Oak St. Beach, Lake & Lincoln Park.
