This double-storey plush Parisian penthouse is located in the heart of the French capital, on the Avenue du President Kennedy, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, near the Musée de Radio France and looking over the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River.
This grand penthouse pad is perched atop stately 6 North Michigan Avenue, a deluxe condominium tower situated in Chicago’s historic Michigan Boulevard district. Built over a century ago and designed by Richard Schmidt in 1899, the historic brick building was the tallest in Chicago, being topped with a 10-story tower, a pyramid, a temple and an 18-foot-tall weather vane shaped like a female figure. It used to be the HQ of the Montgomery Ward Company, meant to increase its clients’ trust, and also had a public observation deck. Later on the tower and the temple were taken away for reasons of safety. Yet, the observation deck has been preserved and encased in glass and the building was renovated in 1923 and completely restored in recent years.
This distinguished English country manor inspired home known as Cravardan is set on a little over one-and-a-half acre lot at 111 Cary Avenue in Highland Park, Illinois. Built in 1915, the 7,984-square-foot luxury residence has been redone and improved over the years but has retained some of the original features, such as moldings and hardware.
