Apartment - Entire home/apt · N Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60657, United States

The Space

Experience the lifestyle of Chicago's gilded age!

(If you like this home please be sure to put it on your WISH LIST!)

Enter this 1924 penthouse apartment through its semi-private elevator (just two units per floor) on famous Lake Shore Drive. There is one master bedroom plus a media room that converts to a bedroom. There are two full bathrooms.

The great thing about my home is its location--an incredible base for everything Chicago has to offer. Wrigley Field is a 10 minute walk away. The Lake Michigan bicycle path (and tennis courts, and golf course, and more) is across the street. A bus will take you to Michigan Avenue in 15 minutes. And the nearby nightlife is incredible.

The new custom-built kitchen features black marble counters and onyx stone tile walls. Love to cook? The gas stove, convection oven, above-the-oven water tap, top of the line coffee maker, Keurig coffee machine, microwave and stainless-steel farmer's sink mean you're surrounded in style and convenience.

  • Christo's amazing, bright and clean Penthouse exceeded all of our expectations. With two full bedrooms and two full bathrooms there was more than enough space for us to be together but not crowded. All of the furnishings are of the highest quality and we LOVE the fish!

  • Usually reality isn't as nice as the pictures, but this time the place fully lived up to expectations. Very spacious, very stylish, TV is gigantic. Rain shower is a nice touch and the kitchen is very modern. Made for a great place for two adults and two older kids. It's a ways from downtown but a pretty fast straight shot down Lakeshore Drive.

  • This place is absolutely amazing. Christo has an incredible apartment. Is elegant, clean and very comfortable. The place is huge and very well located.

    If my parents come to Chicago again they will choose this place again.

    Thanks Christo!

  • Christo's Penthouse Condo was absolutely beautiful. The furnishings were very stylish and comfortable and the art work was fantastic. The condo is incredibly spacious and there are beautiful views of the lake from several windows. The location was perfect for what we had in mind. Walking distance to Wrigley Field and a 5 minute drive to Downtown. Christo leaves a welcome basket with a variety of goodies including loofahs, cleaners, etc. My only complaint would be the lack of keys. If we would have been provided 2 sets of keys everything would have been perfect.

  • An amazing overall experience! We stayed at this apartment for a special occasion and it was perfect. I spent hours looking for a hotel room that would fit the occasion and came up short....I'm so glad I found Christo's apartment. Its WAY better than any hotel room. The location was perfect; quieter than downtown & less touristy, which is what we prefer. A large Whole Foods Mkt a few blocks away was our spot for what we needed at the apt. (food & drinks) The buses take you right from the doorstep to downtown & the museums, or cabs drive by all day/night, so getting around is easy. The apartment has amazing art throughout, like a small gallery! Everything else is just perfect, kitchen, bathrooms, being on the top floor, etc... Christo was great through the whole process, very good at communication. Thanks!

  • Appartement très beau, vaste, décoré avec beaucoup gout, et idéalement situé (nombreux bars et restaurants, métro à quelques minutes). Cuisine très bien équipée également. Propreté excellente. Linge de lit et serviettes de bonne qualité ... Bref, un niveau de prestation correspondant à un hôtel très haut de gamme.
    Très bon contact avec le propriétaire : tout était prévu pour notre arrivée.

  • Chris's place was terrific, the inside was very nice, roomy and fit all of our needs. The location is great a short walk to Wrigley and the beach with a great view. Chris was a very good host, and he made the reservation and check in process very easy. I would highly recommend his place to anyone wanting to stay in this superb penthouse in Chicago.

Hey there, I'm a frequent traveler making my way through the expected (Detroit, Cincinnati, Des Moines) and the exotic (Rio, Geneva, London). If you stay at my home, you'll find hints of my travels spread throughout. I'm incredibly flexible and love hearing from people visiting Chicago--especially folks coming for their first time or a special occasion!
