Comprised of a series of smaller neighborhoods with names like ‘Wrigleyville’, ‘Boystown’, and ‘Southport Corridor’, Lake View real estate occupies a large portion of the north side of Chicago.  Stretching from Ravenswood in the west all the way to the Lake Michigan shoreline, and from Diversey in the south up to Irving Park, this Chicago neighborhood provides a variety of living options for people.

Want to be in the center of the action? Wrigleyville provides a great deal of entertainment and activity – and revelry when the ‘W’ flag flies over the centerfield scoreboard at Wrigley Field.  Looking for a slightly slower speed? Southport offers a great shopping district, a mix of quiet neighborhood restaurants and popular nightspots, and is surrounded by single family homes and two- and three-flats on quiet streets.  Boystown provides its own excitement with a combination of good food, unique shops and an engaged core of residents who work hard to maintain this neighborhood’s identity.

Some of the other benefits of Lake View real estate are easy access to the waterfront, Belmont Harbor and Sidney R. Marovitz Golf Course that runs along the water from Addison to Montrose.

Commuters love Lake View because of the variety of options provided by the CTA; from a strong bus presence to access to the Brown, Purple and Red Lines, there are many options for people who prefer not to drive.
