Property Description

This stunning vintage unit is perched high on the 8th of only 10 floors, located in Le Griffon, one of the most beautiful, boutique Beaux-Arts buildings on Lake Shore Drive. With only four units per floor, the Le Griffon was initially designed by renowned architect L.G. Hallberg, Jr. in 1916. This sprawling layout boasts preserved and restored vintage details blended seamlessly with modern updates. This is the only unit to reveal the original limestone block floor in the living room, with corresponding limestone woodburning fireplace, featuring coats of arms. Top-of-the-line kitchen includes custom inset door cabinetry, GE Monogram built-in refrigerator, GE Monogram professional stove, GE dishwasher, new extra deep stainless-steel sink, new quartz countertops, and new backsplash. The unit is ideal for entertaining, with kitchen breakfast bar, open access to dining area and adjacent to a built-in dry bar/butler's pantry. The gracious entry has 10' barreled ceiling in the gallery-style hall, ideal for displaying artwork. Sunlight pours from the oversized lead-like windows in the living room. Moldings include vintage Orlandini-style plaster ceilings, square panel wainscoting, and 8-13" crown and 9-10.5" shoe. Woodwork features custom 66" kitchen cabinets, original raised panel doors, trim, and restored paneling. The subtle, but important details include glass doorknobs with skeleton key access. Many of the original features have been lovingly restored to their initial glory. This split floor plan features two gracious bedrooms offering abundant closets, and en-suite baths, plus a cozy office off of the primary bedroom. There are original, restored hardwood floors throughout, with carpet in the primary bedroom and office. The building provides on-site maintenance, a guest room which may be reserved for owner's guests for a modest fee, and coming in 2022 is a brand new expansive furnished rooftop deck with barbeque facilities, firepit, dining, and lounging designed by Chicago Roof Deck & Garden.
