The generous scale and proportion of this home is impressive to even those with the highest and most discerning standards. A trophy property, this penthouse has everything you would expect and more - the perfect blend of old-world elegance and modern amenities, plus full-on panoramic lakefront and beach views out of nearly every window. You won't find more true indoor-outdoor living amenities including two expansive balconies and a one-of-a-kind dining deck. The stately foyer showcases a sweeping two-story staircase and vaulted ceiling. The marbled floor leads you into a grand front hall where there is a private powder room and three coat closets. Pick your favorite place among the public living rooms, den or sunroom, each with its own views and vibes. Enjoy a total of 120' of uninterrupted views of Lake Michigan and Lake Shore Drive from both levels. The living room has a majestic bay window. The den is equipped with attractive built-ins, a wet bar and a balcony, and is a perfect optional 5th bedroom. The dining room is a generous size, typically set up for intimate dinner parties of 10-14, but can be expanded to accommodate up to 24. The sunroom or kitchen nook are perfect for smaller gatherings. The bright and airy main kitchen contains all the high-end appliances and amenities a chef could want, including a butler's pantry, two warming drawers, an extra Sub-Zero freezer and ice maker, a wood burning fireplace, an island with seating, a bay dining nook, a temperature-controlled wine room and second powder room. For your privacy and convenience, the primary suite is located on the main level. Tucked away in its own wing, the large bedroom includes a fireplace, classic built-ins, several walk-in and standing closets and a seating/reading alcove. Enjoy individual dressing rooms, two water closets, double vanities, a separate walk-in shower and soaking jacuzzi with lake views.

If you prefer, a quick change of furniture these rooms can be used for any other purpose, including up to five additional bedrooms (as they were originally). Lake views, walnut wall paneling and ornamental ceilings make this floor warm and inviting. The den has a drop-down media screen/system and a fireplace. The private, walnut paneled office is an oasis with a balcony and powder room and can easily be transformed into an optional 4th bedroom. You can't miss the conservatory with 22' ceilings and remote controlled windows surrounding the periphery. It has a separate A/C unit, heated flooring and remote windows.
