Homes for Sale in Edgewater, Chicago
Home types in Edgewater tend to be grouped in bands running north to south. High rises populate a narrow portion at the edge of the waters of Lake Michigan. Moving inland, mid-rise condos in courtyard buildings occupy a few blocks up to the Metro Line and Broadway commercial corridor.
The bulk of Edgewater's central band is occupied by single-family homes and two flats. Another commercial corridor runs down Clark Street. The western edge of Edgewater is again dominated by single-family homes, two flats, and a few three-level buildings.
Most properties are situated on long lots, with rear-alley access.
Established in the late 19th-century, Edgewater has undergone constant transformation, reflecting over a century of American architectural trends. Stome styles on display include traditional cottages, with lap siding, raised porches, forward facing gables, and bay windows; Foursquare, in either wood or brick; Victorian, featuring towers and irregular facades; and characteristic Chicago Graystone flats.
High rises in Edgewater feature an eclectic mix of styles from around the early 20th-century. Red brick is the dominant finishing move on most low-rise and two-flat constructions, displaying various Romanesque or Italianate details.
Interiors emphasize the Gilded Age inspirations of the area, with a white paint on clear wood palette. Hardwood floors, centerpiece fireplaces, and irregularly connected smaller rooms lend a cozy atmosphere throughout.
Virtually all properties have benefited from a history of thoughtful upkeep and renovations, now sporting a range of modern luxury features. Kitchens come with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, integrated appliances, and quality tile-work. Bathrooms come fitted with dual vanities and sinks, soaking tubs, and spacious tiled showers.
The properties being as long as they are, transitional spaces indoors tend to be narrow, linking discrete and surprisingly large spaces. Many homes feature extra spaces like walk-in closets, lofts, basements, balconies, and porches.
