Absolute elegance throughout! 199 E Lakeshore Drive is one of the premiere luxury buildings on the magnificent East Lake Shore Drive, originally designed by Benjamin Marshall and reimagined as a fabulous co op building. This unbelievable penthouse combines the east side of both the 10th and the 11th floors, and exudes true luxury. The combined two-story home begins with a grand foyer opening up to a large curved staircase and gallery, perfect for entertaining. Flooded with light and wonderful lake views on both levels as well as in the living room that spans nearly the width of the home. You feel as though you are in your own private oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city with a tranquil lakefront view. Designed originally as a 7 bedroom home, the home has been configured to offer more public space. A lakefront library with a wet bar and access to a lake front terrace adds to the entertaining access of the living space. The spacious formal dining room accommodates gatherings of 20+ people plus there is a south facing breakfast or sunroom. The wonderfully sunny, south-facing white kitchen features a wood burning oven, butler's pantry, large island with bar seating, and all top end appliances. There is a built-in banquette for informal dining. The owner's suite is also found on the main level and is quite large, including a separate sitting area, fireplace, dual dressing rooms, dual water closets, and double vanities. There is also a makeup vanity, separate shower, and a fabulous soaking tub overlooking the terrace with lake views. The second floor of the home currently features two bedroom suites, one with a fabulous steam room, and a handsome office with an attached powder room. There are two large lake front rooms that could be used for additional dining, lounging, or billiards and a fabulous sun-soaked conservatory with access to a large south-facing terrace with city views. There is a second office/additional bedroom, kitchenette, and a true laundry room. The incredible ceiling detail and walnut paneled walls are a reminder of the historic significance of this fabulous early 1900's building. This home also has roof rights which could easily be one of the most magnificent roof decks on the drive. Five parking spaces and two storage rooms complete this wonderful city home. Walk to the beach and all of the shopping and dining that Michigan Avenue has to offer!
