Manager info

Year Purchased: 1986

About: My wife and I have enjoyed living in our vintage 2 flat on the tree lined street in this Lakeview neighborhood for the last 25 years. So many places are is walking distance that we rarely use our car except for work. We have rented our 1st. floor as a short term vacation/temp apartment for the last 6 years and have hosted guests from all over the world to locals relocating or remodeling. We have truly enjoyed hosting guests that have come to explore the city, go to a ball game, a special family occasion or conference that brings them to Chicago.

Why Lakeview:
We purchased our 2 flat located in this north side neighborhood almost 25 years ago as a place to live and raise a family. We have never regretted moving to Lakeview. It is a vibrant neighborhood filled with tree lined streets lined with vintage maintained homes and apartments. This is a true Chicago neighborhood. Filled with a healthy mix of young families and singles as well as older long time residents. It is very walkable. There is little reason to need a car. Excellent public transportation to downtown and Lakeview is a very walkable part of town. It has been rated 92% on the walk ability index. Just a great place to experience a Chicago neighborhood.
