This 4,200-square-foot Near North home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The professionally designed half-floor penthouse features three private balconies and unobstructed views to the north, east and west. High-grade finishes range from custom Clive Christian cabinetry to Paris Ceramics limestone floors. Panel molding, a barrel vault ceiling, Von Morris hardware and a Crestron Electronics lighting system round out the custom features. In the kitchen, touches like hand-painted custom cabinets, black granite limestone countertops and a coffered ceiling pair with appliances from Sub-Zero, Viking, and Perrin and Rowe. Just past the kitchen, the dining room features a crystal chandelier from Ebanista, while the adjacent mahogany wet bar includes a built-in television and a brass-hammered sink, and the nearby living room’s hand-carved mahogany cabinetry and gas fireplace complement the space.
Arched double doors open to the primary bedroom suite, where a two-sided gas fireplace separates the bedroom from a sitting room. The suite is outfitted with two walk-in closets, wide-plank wood floors, and a bathroom with hand-painted cabinetry, heated limestone floors, a steam shower and a Bain Ultra whirlpool tub. Two side-by-side parking spaces are included on the building’s third floor for easy access. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna and steam room, a workout room and on-site dry cleaners.
