Lakeview East
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Lakeview East Overview

Lakeview East is a part of Lakeview.

A unique and eclectic north side neighborhood brimming with independent businesses, artistic minds, and a vibrant LGBT population - Lakeview East has it all. World-class nightlife, community-mindedness and serene lake views make this district the ideal home for young families, recent grads, creative professionals, and everyone in between. Lakeview East's location along the water is one of the neighborhood's signature qualities. Lake Michigan's beautiful beaches and lakefront trails give way to Belmont Harbor where Chicagoans store their yachts and sailboats between excursions. An off-leash dog beach allows our four-legged friends to run free and a bird sanctuary is the main stopover for our feathered friends flying south for the winter. The housing in Lakeview East is a marriage of high-rise residential buildings, vintage condos and rehabbed lofts, with an assortment of single-family homes thrown in the mix. Off the neighborhood side streets are block after block of restaurants, bars, retail, theaters, and other businesses. In the summer months Lakeview East is flooded with a full calendar of art festivals, outdoor markets, garden walks, and the very popular Chicago Gay Pride Parade.

Lakeview East neighborhood truly offers a charmed existence and an amazing environment to call home. Residents here have a knack for gardening, and the fruits of their labor bloom up and down the elegant avenues of this attractive north side community. Gorgeous churches of all denominations preserve the historic character of the area, and stately wrought-iron fences trim the shady streets, resulting in an aesthetic vibe that is far more European that Midwestern.

Some of the most varied housing styles in Chicago real estate occupy the beautifully maintained tree-lined blocks of Lakeview East. A number of properties are from the days of yester-year, and some were built yesterday. Many are very expensive, and others are unbelievably affordable—but what they all have in common is their proximity to the hustle and bustle of downtown and the calming tranquility of the waterfront. This is what makes the Lakeview East real estate so desirable, all the city lights you need within a few miles, and all the sand and surf you could want within walking distance of your relaxing, lushly landscaped urban retreat.

This blissful marriage of convenience and privacy has been around this north side Chicago neighborhood for well over a century. After a shoreline drive was built back in the 1890s, two brothers decided they could make a bundle by building homes here with sprawling green lawns that still offered inhabitants close proximity to downtown. They started with their own homes and soon major architectural teams like Burnham & Root and Pond & Pond were throwing in their two cents. Today, this well-preserved block of West Hawthorne Place is a historical district, and proof positive that Lakeview East has boasted architectural magnificence for generations.
