REAL ESTATE A site to behold

facebook twitter pin it google +1 reddit email

—Address: 130 N. Garland St. (The Heritage at Millenium Park), penthouse residence 5702—it's a half-block off Michigan Ave., next to the Chicago Cultural Center

—Market price: $5.25 million (mostly furnished)

—Details: This stunning 5,200-square-foot unit offers unobstructed views of Grant Park, the lake and basically the city. (Realtor Kim Jones called it "our own New York City right here in Chicago.")

The ceilings are more than 10 feet high (with custom lighting, a sound system and motorized drapery), and there are four bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bath—perfect for family living, if necessary. (The television in the master bedroom is behind the mirror.)

The bathrooms have, among other things, marble baths, heated floors and towel bars. (The master bath has a dual steam shower and bathtub with jets. Moreover, you can look over the city while taking a bath—an enviable position.) The large open kitchen has double ovens, two dishwashers and wine cabinets. Oh, and one should not forget the private elevator.

The Heritage was built in 2006 and houses 356 condos within its 57 stories. The building offers numerous amenities, such as access to the Chicago Pedway, an exercise room, indoor pool, whirlpool, party room, sundeck, high-speed Internet and a dog run. (Regarding pets, there is a limit of two and a weight limit of 35 pounds each.)

Of course, being in the Loop, the building's extremely close to public transportation, restaurants and events/venues that specialize in the arts.

A husband and wife own the unit. The wife, in talking with Windy City Times, engagingly detailed how she literally built the unit from nothing. "It was just raw concrete," she said. She put her unmistakable and global touch throughout the residence, with everything from art pieces (including a samovar) to the piano in the living area to the onyx wall that greets visitors upon entering to the dining table that "easily seats 16," the wife said.

When asked why she would give up this unit, the wife said, "I want to start a new project. I love projects. I love to play." Judging by this residence, she definitely has a future in design.

Interested persons should contact Baird & Warner's Kim Jones at 312-640-7010 and .
