The square footage of units at The Carlyle, 1040 N Lake Shore Dr, typically doubles and occasionally triples that in buildings of lesser stature. That’s to be expected in a building that set the standard for new luxury high-rise construction on the Gold Coast when it opened in 1965.
The building has 4 units per floor served by two separate banks of elevators, resulting in no more than two units sharing an elevator lobby.
All of the master suites at The Carlyle have two full baths and generously-sized closets. Wide hallways, large foyers and expansive east- and west-facing balconies contribute to the feeling of spaciousness.
Metropolitan Real Estate Group’s Margot Weinstein hosts this tour of Unit 34C, a 2,800 square foot, 2-bedroom, 3 ½ bath unit that she describes as “the largest 2-bedroom in the building.” Toward the end of the video you’ll have a rare look at the building’s 38th floor amenities, including a fitness room, an indoor pool, and a ballroom that you’d only expect to find in a hotel.
Unit 34C is for sale at $1,595,000. The adjacent Unit 34B, a 2,230 square foot 1-bedroom, 2 ½ bath, currently on the market for $1,295,000, presents buyers with a rare opportunity to combine the two and have a more than 5,000 square foot home. A video tour of Unit 34B is also available at YouTube.
