Step back in time to the glamour of 1920's Paris. 111 E Chestnut evokes images of the European art deco era of the 1920's, with stylized decorative elements using geometrical forms, zigzags, chevrons, reeding and fluting around doors and windows, inlaid mosaic tiles, marble statues and brass finishes. Built in 1972, this 57 story high rise has been home to several famous people including mayors, actors and stars of Saturday Night Live. 17C has glorious views of all that defines Chicago including: the original water tower, Water Tower Place, Hancock, the MCA and Fourth Presbyterian, to name a few. The black granite geometric diamond patterned floor greets you in the foyer and extends through the living and dining area. The adjacent, open concept kitchen has contrasting cremora marble floors and color compatible cabinets that echo the black and cream art deco theme. The kitchen is nicely updated with stainless steel GE appliances, mirrored backsplashes and black granite counters. Enjoy your champagne, or any other beverage of choice, in the very large living/dining room while taking in the cityscape from your floor to ceiling windows. Custom track lighting illuminates your evening soirees. The large Primary bedroom has hardwood floors, custom blackout shades, walls of closets and drawers, room for a King size bed and a wonderful little nook, perfect for a desk, or chaise lounge.
