We were chattering recently about the perceived lack of large “family” type condos in downtown high rises where you could raise a few kids and enjoy high rise amenities like pools and party rooms.
A lot of new condo development still seems to be marketed to 20-somethings without kids who don’t need a lot of space.
See the chatter here.
This 3-bedroom in 415 E. North Water in Streeterville has been on the market since May.
It is slightly outside of the price range we chattered about which was $1.5 million to $2 million, but it appears to meet all the “unicorn” criteria that were mentioned.
The northwest corner unit has as much space as many single family homes with 3498 square feet.
It has generous bedroom sizes, including a large master suite, as well as a family room and an actual 10×7 laundry room (urban mommy- check out picture #23).
The kitchen has luxury stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a tile backsplash.
The building has everything that was mentioned including:
- indoor pool
- exercise room
- party room
- bike room
The unit even has 2-car parking.
To top it off, the listing says it’s in the Ogden school district.
Is this the perfect city family home for those with kids?
Elizabeth Ballis at Coldwell Banker has the listing. See the pictures here.
