Nestled in among the Gold Coast mansions, 1540 N State is a quiet, boutique building, with only four units per floor, in one of Chicago's most desirable neighborhoods walking distance to bus/train transportation, grocery stores, shopping, and dining along with easy access to Lincoln Park, North Ave Beach, and the lakefront bike and running trail. Michigan Ave/Oak and Rush Street dining and shopping is a 5 minute ride away. This 2 bedroom 2 bath floorplan is graced by a massive, wall-to-wall, east-facing window that not only bathes the combined living/dining room with all-day light but also offers an over treetop view of the lake, Lincoln Park, and the historic Gold Coast homes that line North State Parkway. An open kitchen with an eat-at breakfast bar (or office nook?) overlooks the dining area while a full suite of stainless steel appliances compliments the granite countertops and modern maple cabinets. Hardwood flooring is found throughout the unit, including the bedrooms. The primary bedroom will accommodate a king bed and furnishings, the 2nd bedroom will fit a queen bed and furnishings with two full bathrooms adjacent to the bedrooms. The large rooftop sundeck offers a panoramic city and Lake view. The common areas, fob-accessed package room, and laundry room are modern and extraordinarily well-maintained. Storage cage and bike storage are available on a first-come basis. Assessments include heat, gas, water, cable TV, and weekday doorman. Dogs and cats are welcome.
