spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the skyline

Located on a premier floor inside one of Chicago's most iconic Art Deco landmarks, the Palmolive Building, 159 E. Walton Pl., unit 20B, is a 3172-square-foot, 3 bed/3.5 bath luxury residence with pedigree and polish - and absolutely spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the skyline. In the foyer, hardwood floors and modern crown molding set a refined tone for the design-forward finishes that can be found throughout. Situated at the northeast corner, overlooking the Drake hotel, Lake Shore Drive and the lakefront, the living room is large and full of natural light, and features oversize windows, bespoke draperies, and custom bookshelves. The living/entertaining footprint continues with a stately formal dining room with grasscloth wallcoverings, statement scones, and space for both a sideboard and a buffet, plus an all-white, chef's kitchen with stainless, professional-grade appliances, custom cabinetry, stone countertops, and a sunny breakfast room. Beyond, down a hallway that features four bonus storage closets, the unit presents two, secondary ensuite bedrooms, one of which has been converted into a handsome den with wraparound, custom bookshelves and a built-in desk. Occupying its own wing on the opposite side of the footprint, this home's spacious primary suite features more gorgeous millwork details, a private office, a custom walk-in closet, and a stunning ensuite bath with dual vanity, jetted soaking tub, and a limestone-clad shower. Additional unit details include a presentation-worthy powder room for guests, a custom laundry closet, an updated and integrated AV system with iPad controls, and motorized shades on select windows. World-class building amenities include 24-hour door service, onsite management, an onsite engineer, a fitness center with a whirlpool and a steam room, access to the Beacon Club for large-scale entertaining, and onsite garage parking with valet service. (Two parking spaces included.) With the very best of Chicago right outside your front door - the Mag Mile, Oak Street Beach, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and more - and a distinguished, downtown address to call home, 159 E. Walton Pl., unit 20B, is truly remarkable living along the lakefront.
