Lakeview Avenue, Estate of the Day
Oprah Winfrey's fomer agent, manager and adviser, attorney Jeffrey Jacobs has some swell digs in Chicago. The Chicago Elite Street column reports that Jacobs has put his duplex penthouse co-op on the market for $5.75 million.
He bought the unit in 1999 and has renovated the elegant four-bedroom abode which was designed by architect David Adler designed. The building is right on the park and has a skylight and big windows show lake and city views. The apartment has a grand staircase which cures upward to four bedrooms plus a nursery/office. The home has a new kitchen, breakfast room and an adjacent family living room. That Oprah money has done this home well, it is exquisitely designed. The formal dining room with faux columns, a piano and a view of the lake and the curved wood-ceilinged billiard room are particularly delightful. It is listed with realtor Janet Owen.
