This week’s featured condo is at the Ambassador West in Chicago’s Gold Coast.
We’ve got a great featured condo for all you house hunters out there this week that’s located in a building rife with historical intrigue.
Located on the Near North Side, Ambassador West was built in 1918 and stood for 80 years as one of the world’s most famous hotels. In the late 50s, the Ambassador West was known for hosting lavish soirees with scads of famous people and social elites like Frank Sinatra, Angela Davis, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. The Hotel had mahogany, marble and glass lobby pillars, Parquet floors, draperies of sapphire taffeta and beautiful Waterford chandeliers. The marble front desk is where Cary Grant questioned a clerk in the movie “North by Northwest”.
Unfortunately, The Ambassador West did not last forever and was liquidated in 2002. Soon after they remodeled the hotel and transformed it into the Ambassador West Condos with 36 luxury condos.
Now the Ambassador Condos is an opulent residence that offers every amenity available including a roof deck with a grill, a dog run, a bike room, a doorman and a gym. In addition, pets are welcome!
Unit 1201 is a gorgeous luxury residence that has been on the market for less than a year. This 3-bedroom, 4 ½ -bathroom luxury duplex penthouse comes with 6,800 square feet of interior living space and 1,400-square-foot private terrace space.
1201 has sweeping views, a custom staircase, custom fittings, soaring ceilings and tasteful design. The condo is outfitted with three large ensuite bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Other custom features in this lavish condo include a family room, a library, hardwood floors and a private dog run! It’s decked out with Murano lighting and full audio visual components. This extravagant end unit houses five wood burning fireplaces with the option to instead use the gas starters.
The DeGuilio kitchen has an island with a wet bar, a double oven with a range, a microwave, a dishwasher and a high-end refrigerator and freezer. It also offers a lovely breakfast nook with lots of table space, but if it’s not enough, the exquisite 22 x 16 foot dining room will be! There’s also plenty more space to store your canned and packaged goods in the convenient walk-in pantry.
The master bathroom has a whirlpool bathtub with a separate shower, a steam shower and a double sink. Ambassador West uses gas heat and has central air for the summer.
The building has an attached garage and the unit comes with two parking spaces. Don’t wait! Come tour this building and condo now before it’s gone!
