This Very '70s Penthouse Apartment Is Truly Stunning

If you found yourself watching the final seasons of Mad Men and really vibing with Don Draper’s swinging Manhattan bachelor pad, here is the apartment for you.

The Daily Mail points to a listing that recently popped up on Zillow. It’s for a Chicago penthouse, 1,877 square feet, listed at $158,000 by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Starck Real Estate. It was built in 1972 and apparently hasn’t been changed since, and frankly it is magnificent. Look at this kitchen wallpaper.


Look at this bedroom wallpaper.

Really though, the best part is the bathroom wallpaper.


No, wait, the best part is the other bathroom wallpaper.


“Suddenly, it’s all the rage,” said listing agent Lauri Rosenbloom. “I’ve got people who love the wallpaper and the furniture.” Yeah, because it’s fucking amazing.


Unfortunately for you ‘70s enthusiasts, this remarkable property might not be available, after all. NBC 5 Chicago spoke to Rosenbloom, who said the sellers were taking it back off the market. I hope they sold the place lock, stock and barrel to the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the latest addition to the institution’s collection of period rooms.
