A Full Floor 3-Bedroom in a 1930s Art Deco Masterpiece: 1260 N. Astor in the Gold Coast

1260 n astor

This full floor 3-bedroom in 1260 N. Astor in the Gold Coast came on the market in August 2015.

This building was constructed in 1930-1931 and was designed in the Art Deco style by Phillip Maher.

It is a co-op and has just 13 units.

This 4000 square foot unit has all 4 exposures, including the tree tops of Astor Street.

It has all the large rooms that would expect to find in construction from this time period including a foyer and a 12×12 laundry room that is larger than many bedrooms in new construction buildings.

All three bedrooms are en suite and the master bedroom has an outfitted dressing room.

The kitchen has custom white cabinets and luxury appliances including Subzero and Miele.

The unit has crown molding and a wood burning fireplace.

It has the features buyers look for today, including zoned central air and in-unit laundry but there’s no parking. It is leased in the neighborhood.

This building has a doorman, which is unusual for a boutique building of its size.

Unit #12 in this building is also currently on the market. It has views and a private terrace. It is under contract already with a list price of $3.995 million. See those pictures here.

Is this Astor Street living at its finest if you want to be in a mid-rise or a high-rise?

Jennifer Ames at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.

Unit #4: 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4000 square feet

  1. Lack of parking sucks, but otherwise an A+ unit. Almost looks like it could be in NYC.

  2. I’ve appreciated this building when hanging at the (newly rehabbed) playground right across the street.

  4. wow…$3.5 million dollar price….in order to pay $7,500/mo in assessments + taxes. Might as well rent with that kind of monthly fees.

  7. Another of my fave vintage buildings. At least this unit has not been TOO modernized, even though it’s a bit more stripped than I would like. Viewed photos of units in this building taken when it was first built and opened, and the interiors were dazzling in their details at that time.
