Open kitchen with modern appliances and a separate breakfast room convenient for casual dining look out to the living and formal dining area. Central living room with remote controlled natural gas fireplace and open floor plan provide terrific space for entertaining or relaxing and watching the river from your armchair or couch.
Consider the unique aspects of this property:
The 8th floor location provides the best and only line of sight view and distance to observe the river and river walk activities through any window without standing up next to a window or going outside on the balcony.
See it all and don't miss it from the convenience of your couch or armchair even sitting away from the windows. You literally won't miss the boat (or boats in this case). This is where all of the action is - constantly changing, never boring. Higher up your views are static and too far away to see any activity plus you are looking down. Why live in Riverview without an exciting river view? View a dynamic panorama of activity on the River, the River Walk, and Lake Michigan. There is no place like it in Chicago.
Professional high tech water filtering system for both cold and instant hot water dispensers. Chicago has great water. The filters eliminate any impurities and any tastes other than the sweet taste of pure water.
Remote controlled Hunter whisper-quiet adjustable speed ceiling fans
that move the air just right to assure your perfect comfort level located in all three bedrooms. It makes a difference and greatly reduces the need for air conditioning.
Professionally installed home run wired/wireless (Wi-Fi) data, voice, video cabling system
to every living area - even the bathrooms for TV and telephone. It is cable ready for a state-of-the-art phone /intercom system as well as a data network both wired and wireless.
One convenient parking space within a few steps to the elevator
and the stairs next to the turn-around (the only one in the building) for easy in and out of your parking spot and in and out access to your car. 3 high speed elevators take you within a minute from your car to your floor. Rental and guest parking is available. Purchase of a 2nd space is available.
All your window views are unique and include trees, flowers, and plantings on the terraced sundeck
as well as your neighbors specially designed and cultivated private sun deck gardens below. This view comes with the sounds of songbirds, seagulls, ducks, geese, and an occasional falcon and heron as the river is a flyway. The river itself changes color and flow - matching the color of the lake - and reflecting the city lights at night. Enjoy the distant lights of the Indiana shoreline at night. You miss all of this at a higher level. You are in the picture and see all of the activities that make it exciting to live here. The river is the cleanest here as fresh Lake Michigan water constantly flows west to eventually reach the Mississippi.
The balcony and window views all facing south allow you to have breakfast in the morning on the balcony avoiding the low blinding eastern sunrise rays and cocktails and dinner in the afternoon and early evening avoiding the low blinding western sunset rays, while providing warm rays during the day from the sun at less obtrusive higher levels in the sky. The south balcony river views with east lake and west city views as well are the optimum views. A north view provides no direct sun at all and can draw insects as well to nest. Fireworks performed frequently all summer can be viewed from the balcony or on the terrace below on the 6th floor level - a one minute walk from the condo. You get much more enjoyment and use out of a south-facing balcony than any other.
The year round urban greenery outside your window as well as across the river provides an added and unique bonus that you do not get when you are in a high-rise condominium and in a very pleasant way brings the country greenery you are used to into your urban view. It is the ultimate urban front yard - enjoy the beauty without lifting a finger to care for it.
Note: With their southern exposure the generous 10" deep window sills in every room and the balcony are ideal locations for potted plants to thrive.
