    Exquisitely Modern Condo with Panoramic Views

    Exquisitely modern with unrivaled, panoramic views of the skyline and Lake Michigan, 161 E. Chicago Ave., unit 60M1, is a never before lived in 3 bed/3.5 bath, duplex penthouse in the exclusive Olympia Centre residences. Recently reconfigured and renovated by Centaur Interiors, no expense was spared on the fixtures and finishes for this 5,400-square-foot, top tier unit with a corner position. The main level program presents a large, two-story great room with 85 feet of contiguous windows to the north and 45 feet of windows to the east. Perfect for elevated entertaining and everyday living, the great room encompasses a formal living room space, a lounge/den with a custom wet bar with full-height Gaggenau wine refrigeration, an open-concept kitchen, and a fabulous family room - all of which find connectivity thanks to seven-inch-wide, white oak flooring. The centrally located chef's kitchen is a masterpiece of design, flaunting custom Arclinea cabinets in fume oak, a leathered quartzite island, professional Sub-Zero/Wolf appliances, and an attached eight-foot kitchen table. The primary suite is also located on the main level and features an epic 15' x 14' walk-in closet by B&B Italia with a leather-wrapped island and a Breccia Capraia marble-clad, en-suite bath with a custom glass top vanity by Artelinea, a Roman shower, and a bubble jet soaking tub. Upstairs, the second level presents two, spacious secondary bedrooms, both with walk-in closets, designer en-suite baths, and more mesmerizing views. (The third bedroom can serve as a handsome home office as is.) Additional unit details include a presentation-worthy powder room with marble vanity, two laundry rooms (one per floor), motorized shades, Waterworks plumbing fixtures, Toto intelligent toilets, surplus storage via custom millwork, surround sound, a wireless network with Araknis, a state-of-the-art Savant home automation system, and a convenient separate entrance on the second floor. Full-service building amenities include a 24-hour door staff, concierge services, a fitness center, an indoor pool and health spa, an entertaining room, a sun deck, and onsite garage parking. Situated next to some of the most famous attractions, restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities Chicago has to offer - Michigan Avenue, the historic Water Tower, the John Hancock building, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the lakefront, just to name a few - not to mention adjacent to Neiman Marcus, 161 E. Chicago Ave., unit 60M1, is uncompromising luxury in the heart of it all.
