Estate sale, price reflects need for extensive renovation. Located on the front northeast corner of Drake Tower, this apartment has spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the shoreline including Oak Street Beach and beyond. The views from the eighth floor are preferred because they clear the tops of trees from the verdant park on the opposite side of East Lake Shore Drive. Large living room (same size as a half floor apartment) with original marble fireplace classically positioned in the center of the space accommodates flexible furniture arrangements. Virgin hardwood floors have recently been exposed by removing the carpeting. Tall double doors with Benjamin Marshall's original horseshoe hardware divide the living room from the bedrooms. Master bedroom suite sited on the northeast corner provides sunny north and east exposures w/fabulous views. Additional bedroom or den has en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Galley kitchen space is anchored by large window generating natural light.
