Experience the elegance of this stunning 2-bedroom 2.5-bathroom home boasting extensive award-winning renovations and upgrades by a world-renowned designer, in a premier white-glove condominium. 680 N Lake Shore Drive is not only handsome but an iconic and stunning example of Neo-Gothic styled architecture. When it was completed, it was the largest building in the world. From 1988 until 2012 it was home to Playboy Enterprises’ corporate headquarters. When they were sold they moved to LA. Sparing no expense, residence 1622 has been gutted and impeccably redesigned for the discerning buyer. Attention to detail reaches corner to corner, from the modified layout which enhanced the flow to new electric service, plumbing, and an air handler. Over 1,400 square feet of imported 2′ x 2′ Calacatta Vecchia Italian porcelain tiles were installed over a sound barrier.

The powder room walls are clad with 2″ square beveled mirror tiles. The underlit floating vanity with quartzite top has a unique textured glass sink, backlit wall hung mirror and pair of designer sconces. The two generous sized bedrooms are en-suite with amazing fully built-in custom closets illuminated by LED lights. The divine spa-like primary bath features a M.C. Escher-esque mosaic patterned marble floor, statuary white marble walls and a 7′ long vanity with quartz top featuring an integral sink. The guest bath is clad in travertine. The countertop and wall behind it are created from slabs that have been bookmatched. Both bathrooms have frameless glass shower enclosures, thermostat control valves, ceiling mounted raindomes and multiple body sprays. This home also includes custom crown moldings, new baseboards, door casings and door hardware. 85 halogen low-voltage recessed lights were installed on 3-way dimmers to illuminate artwork, tabletops and workspaces. Wireless remotes control the motorized shades everywhere and the oversized windows are coated with a special UV film to prevent fabrics and artwork from fading. The formal entry greets your arrival and spills into the generous living/entertaining space with high airy ceilings and walls of windows. The quiet primary bedroom features Masland cut-pile wall-to-wall carpeting, a 100% wool upholstered accent wall and in addition to the motorized roller shades, there is a wall of room darkening Ultrasuede draperies.
