Situated just north of Lincoln Park, bordering the lake, and home to the Chicago Cubs Lakeview is perhaps the epitome of a neighborhood with something for everyone. In the mid-1800s it was actually a civil township and it didn't become a neighborhood in Chicago until 1889. The decision to absorb Lakeview into Chicago was clearly a good one. Almost immediately the neighborhood underwent a real estate boom during which over forty percent of the buildings within the neighborhood today were erected. 

In more recent memory Lakeview has developed a few smaller communities of its own. Along Lake Michigan in Lakeview East one can find tons of outdoor entertainment from boating, to golf, birding, and even archery. Take in a Cubs game at Wrigley Field and enjoy nearby dining and entertainment options after. Boystown, along Halsted street is where the city's annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade is held. Sprinkled along Belmont street are a few longstanding businesses such as Ragstock, Hollywood Mirror, Ann Sather, The Gallery Bookstore, and Clarke's. While this street was once lined with small shops as these some bigger stores have now made this neighborhood home, such as Target, Marshalls, and DSW. 

At 814 W Roscoe you can live in the center of this ever-evolving neighborhood. The location of the home is an easy walk to either the Belmont or Addison red lines, Belmont Harbor, and Wrigley Field. Living here you will have all the best of Lakeview at your fingertips.

This stunning greystone building might be a product of the real estate boom from when Lakeview became part of Chicago. Regardless, it has stood the test of time and continues to watch over the neighborhood as it evolves. Old as the building may be, Unit 1NW is modern through and through. The duplex unit features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The wide chef's kitchen has extra custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a marble backsplash and stainless steel appliances complete with a wine fridge. Open to the dining and living room, it is a great layout for entertaining or gatherings.

Two bedrooms on the lower level add privacy and tranquility. The enormous master suite boasts a marble bath with an extra wide double-vanity, including a dressing table. As well as a large steam shower.

Take it all in and enjoy the private deck at our open houses this weekend. 814 W Roscoe 1NW Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 10:00-12:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 6, 2018 from 11:00-1:00 p.m.
