    Description

    A luxury residence like this is not viewed it's experienced. Originally built for Edward Tyler Blair, a Chicago investment banking magnate, the home was designated as a Chicago Landmark in 1989 and is listed on both the National Register and Illinois Register of Historic Places. Every once in a while an exceptional opportunity presents itself. This is one of those times. 1516 Lake Shore Drive is a jewel in the crown of the Gold Coast of Chicago. It's been 65 years since this property was available for sale. The right buyer will see the potential and accept stewardship of this piece of Chicago history.
