Head north of Chicago Ave in Streeterville and you’re in a neighborhood that differs radically from the sea of new apartment towers, hospital buildings and parking lots south of Chicago Ave. You’re in a neighborhood that was largely settled in the 1920s and is dominated by classic vintage buildings and the iconic architecture of the Hancock Center, Lake Shore Drive and Mies van der Rohe’s Glass Houses. The area is considered by many to be part of the Gold Coast, since it shares that neighborhood’s largely residential character and charm.
The Chatelaine, 215 E Chestnut, is a 1920s-era classic with a boutique environment and only four apartments per floor.
Atop The Chatelaine you’ll find the most spectacular penthouse in any rental property in Streeterville – a 4-bedroom, 4 ½ bath treasure pictured above.
The penthouse has an entertaining-sized dining room with the gothic arch windows that recur throughout the home. A playroom off the dining room could also be a home office. The true chef’s kitchen has a butler’s pantry and a six-burner Thermador range and cabinet-front Thermador refrigerator / freezer.
All of the bedrooms have en-suite baths with antique fixtures. The master bath has a double-bowl vanity and a large walk-in shower. The spacious master bedroom has extensive built-in storage cabinets.
Two of the bedrooms, including the master, are on the main level. The two bedrooms on the upper level branch off a barrel-vaulted library that overlooks the living area.
A private terrace opening from the kitchen has space for entertaining and grilling. A north-facing terrace opens from the living room and affords views over the lake.
The penthouse is available for sublet August 1 through the end of December 2018, at $9,920 for the first period and $10,400 for the second.
The Chatelaine has been recently renovated, but its apartment homes retain the spacious floor plans, high ceilings, hardwood floors, crown moldings, arched passageways and other vintage details that add up to residences with a distinctive character.
The Chatelaine currently has a -bedroom available at $2,015. Two-bedroom, 2-bath apartments are fully-occupied at this time. Floor plans and near real-time rent and availability info can be accessed online.
