Apartment Description

Originally one of Chicago's most luxurious 1920's apartment hotels, Windermere House was designed to be the most sophisticated and elegant residence of its day. Today, it remains a testament to that vision. Carefully preserved and restored original plaster, wood, terrazzo, terra cotta, brass, copper and bronze details of French and Italian Renaissance styles combine with a myriad of modern amenities to create a remarkable coalescence of contemporary living in a timelessly refined atmosphere. Overlooking Jackson Park, it's ideally located for easy access and within walking distance from the University of Chicago, restaurants and shopping.

Windermere House is located in Chicago, Illinois in the 60637 zip code. This apartment community was built in 1923 and has 12 stories with 231 units.
