Lakeside living never goes out of style in Edgewater. Once a playground for Chicago’s early 20th century elite, the neighborhood continues to draw residents with its spectacular lake views, large beaches, thriving theater scene and restaurants with cuisines from around the world.
Encompassing a number of neighborhoods between Uptown and Rogers Park, Edgewater offers convenience and proximity to downtown Chicago and nearby Loyola University. The community is easily accessible by Lake Shore Drive and public transportation including the CTA Red Line and Metra’s Union Pacific North Line.
Although the posh hotels are gone, Edgewater retains some of its early glamour with stately mansions, Neo-Gothic churches and the iconic 1920s pink Edgewater Beach Apartments. The Bryn Mawr Historic District features opulent mansions and vintage lamp posts. Edgewater housing choices also include high-rise condominiums, vintage three-flats and greystones, and new-construction single-family homes.
Residents here appreciate a neighborhood where they can enjoy their home and walk to the beach, parks, cafes, restaurants, antique shops and theater.
