Designed by Ben Marshall and sited in the middle of East Lake Shore Drive, 199 is a sought-after building. This east apartment, a reconfigured gut renovation in the early 2000's designed by Marvin Herman, is outfitted with high quality finishes including extensive millwork in a timeless and classic aesthetic. Enter the apartment into a spacious foyer with elegant powder room adjacent. Large square-shaped gallery featuring a dome ceiling is located off the foyer and in the center of the apartment. Living room, library and kitchen with eating area occupy the window line overlooking Lake Michigan. The kitchen was moved to the front of the apartment as part of the reconfiguration to access the balcony overlooking the lake and take advantage of the sunlight that fills the space. The kitchen is large and open with a spacious eating area. High-end appliances and extensive custom cabinetry with every conceivable feature including a built-in desk with file drawers and storage define the investment made in the renovation. Regal wet bar off the gallery and adjacent to the large formal dining room is ideal for entertaining. Sunroom off the dining room doubles as an office and has a second powder room connected. Views from the desk in the sunroom extend through the dining room and living room to the lake while light from the rear fills the room. Principal bedroom suite is massive with built-in cabinetry, beverage center, decorative fireplace, French doors to Juliette balcony, large luxury marble bathroom and two large walk-in closets featuring custom buildout. Two guest suites and laundry room are located on the opposite side of the apartment creating optimum privacy. Two prime parking spaces in attached garage and storage room are included in the price. The east simplex apartments such as 7E rarely become available at 199. The last offering was 2012. Uniformed door staff and onsite engineer provide a high level of security, service and convenience to the residents.
