Designer-owned and appointed, this stunning 3 bed/2.5 bath in East Lakeview is highly editorial and rich with modern comforts. Steps from the lakefront, this vintage pre-war building has been meticulously maintained, and lovingly enhanced with many updates highlighting its boutique nature. Inside, a recently renovated lobby leads to unit 12C, a 2,800-square-foot, turnkey residence with measured personality and polish. A formal entryway and foyer set an eclectically elegant tone, and link to the home's main living and entertaining spaces: an east facing living room, a light-filled dining room, and a bonus sitting vignette that separates the two. The living room puts this home's designer finishes on full display with white oak hardwood floors, original plaster crown molding and an elegant marble fireplace, while the dining room flaunts hand painted walls, space for a large table and buffet, and room additional alcove seating. The presentation-worthy chef's kitchen receives wonderful natural light, too, and boasts custom cabinetry, a custom vent hood surround boasting hand glazed artisan tile, limestone countertops, Sub-Zero/Thermador/ASKO appliances, and a Waterstone faucet-and direct access to a spectacular walk-in china closet/pantry, a butler's pantry, and a boldly defined breakfast room. The home's private quarters present two, secondary bedrooms, one of which has been handsomely styled as an office/den, plus a stylish primary bedroom with a grasscloth-clad media console, three closets, and a luxe en-suite bath with custom tilework and a wet room with a cast iron, Tea-for-Two tub by Kohler. Additional unit details include a designer powder room with steel flooring, a large laundry area with abundant cabinetry and drying rack, a back-of-the-house bar center with beverage cooler and wine fridge, a Lutron lighting system, automated shades in the dining and living rooms, custom draperies throughout, and state-of-the-art audio/video. Building amenities include a shared courtyard with grills and tables, a gym, a dog run, a bike room, downstairs storage, mail/packages concierge, an on-site engineer and manager, and leased parking for multiple cars plus free guest parking. (Of note: Parking comes with 24-hour valet service and a weekly car wash, and there's an on-site lot for temporary parking/contractors. In addition, the building just completed a multi-year tuck-pointing project and many other capital projects.) Design-forward and inherently elegant, not to mention walking distance to the Waveland Park Tennis Courts and the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, 3800 N. Lake Shore Drive, unit 12C, is a bespoke property for the homeowner who doesn't want to lift a finger. Agent owned.
