Edgewater Realtor

edgewaterLocated between Uptown and Rogers Park on Chicago’s far North Side and considered one of Chicago’s 77 Community Neighborhoods, Edgewater was once a playground for Chicago’s early 20th century elite. Today, the stately mansions and posh hotels have been replaced by high-rises with spectacular lake views and easy access to beaches and parks. The neighborhood offers excellent access to trains and public transportation, and Loyola University is nearby.

Edgewater offers a variety of real estate options; moderate housing prices and easy access to public transportation and the lakefront make this area very attractive to people of all ages, income levels and backgrounds. Residents can enjoy the beach, the park, lively cafes, restaurants, antique shops and theatres. Edgewater also has a strong network of active community-based organizations. The median sales price for real estate in Edgewater is $175,000, an increase of 17% from last year.

Edgewater’s retail streets are filled with a variety of entertainment, shopping and restaurant options. During summer the neighborhood’s Farmer’s Market bustles with vendors selling farm-grown fruits, veggies, flowers and other handmade items. For the outdoor enthusiasts, a long paved trail runs the length of the neighborhood and beyond, offering breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and the city skyline.

The Norse Bar is a beer lover’s delight.  With a long list of rotating taps, this place has a friendly and helpful bar staff to make the list a little less intimidating.  Hopleaf Bar is one of the original gastro-pubs and also a draw for their amazing mussels.

The Edgewater Antique Mall is one of Chicago’s best spots to find vintage furniture and accessories. When it comes to good ethnic food, Edgewater has a dazzling array of options. For affordable and high-end Japanese food, Sunshine Café on Clark Street is the place to be. And neighboring Ethiopian restaurants Abyssinia and Ras Dashen serve up authentic Ethiopian fare on Broadway.
