550 W Surf Street Unit: 117$2,500/moLeased

Welcome home to the best of East Lakeview in an incredibly charming mix of vintage luxury and modern-day finishes. This 2 bedroom high first floor unit at the historically significant landmark Commodore Building features extra-large bedrooms (both large enough for a California King bed), new central air conditioning, an in-unit washer/dryer, a gigantic private storage room (literally over 5 feet wide, 5 feet deep and 8 feet tall), extremely generous closets with Elfa custom organizers, hardwood floors in the massive open concept living/dining rooms (perfect for entertaining), updated lighting, stainless steel appliances, and so much more. Zero maintenance Corian countertops in the kitchen and bath, huge cabinet capacity in the L-shaped kitchen, and even fire sprinklers in the unit (one of the only buildings in the area to retrofit for homeowners' insurance savings and additional safety). Not only is the building financially healthy with no special assessments and none planned, (Cable TV, 300mb+ High-speed internet included in assessments, pet friendly, also rental friendly after 24 months of ownership) but it also has a stunning courtyard entrance landscaped to the nines with year-round maintenance, bike room, package room, and more. You may want to use that bike sooner than later, considering that this property is only steps to the lakefront running/bike trails, Diversey Harbor, the driving range & tennis courts, and incredible fine dining, retail, nightlife and public transportation just steps away. Gyms including Fitness 19, LA Fitness, XSport, LVAC & LPAC within walking distance, as are grocery staples Trader Joe's, Walmart, Mariano's, and shopping such as Banana Republic, Express, Urban Outfitters and even Landmark Cinemas for you movie buffs. There simply is nothing else on the market available with this combination of history and upgrades in this price range, so come see it now and make this your new home for years to come!
