Two stories of a Potter Palmer-built mansion at 33 E Division St in the Gold Coast are on the market, either for rent or for sale. (Not to be confused with the Palmer Mansion, of course.) Unit #3, a 3,000 square-foot duplex occupying the top two floors of the 122-year-old home, features honey-toned hardwood floors, an 8-foot front balcony, 3 wood-burning fireplaces with carved oak mantels, detailed ceilings with 11-foot heights, marble baths, and a chef’s kitchen. The home can also accommodate in-unit laundry and a 30′ x 15′ private roof deck, and on-site parking may be available.
In August 2009, the home was available to purchase for $3.2 million, or to rent for $10,000 a month, according to a conversation at Trulia. It’s currently marketed by Steven Malone of Sudler Sotheby’s for $2.39 million (possibly a new price for the new year, as the home was taken off the market in late December and relisted last Wednesday), or $4,250 a month. 2008 taxes were $8,402; no assessment information is available.
From 33 E Division St, a person is just two short blocks from Lake Shore Drive, and less than a block from the bustling intersection of Division and State. Walkscore.com gives the location a 95 out of 100 for amenities within walking distance, and an 89 for public transit accessibility.
