With emerging, in-demand neighborhoods, handsomely equipped units, and more, Chicago real estate has never been hotter, with no reason to think that dynamism will slow down in 2018. With the year coming to a close, the authorities at CONLON/Christie’s highlight some of the most notable industry must-haves—and the properties that feature them.
Never mind the sometimes (OK, pretty frequent) prohibitive weather—outdoor space is still at a premium for property-seekers. Whether it’s under the sun or in the snow, urbanites are always pining for space to stretch their legs. Several properties satisfy that end.
Set on a 37.5’ lot, 6-bedroom, 4.2-bathroom 3531 N. Janssen Ave. boasts a raised terrace, fireplace, and a fenced-in, landscaped backyard—meaning there's room to breathe without sacrificing privacy (in the heart of hip Southport Corridor, no less).
What’s better than coming home to a luxe high rise in the West Loop? One with 215 square-feet of private, covered outdoor space. 1109 W. Washington has just that—and more—in the center of one of the city’s most buzzy neighborhoods.
Ample room doesn’t mean sacrificing luxury—the opposite, in fact, with a swath of new properties proving that you can have your space and live in sophistication, too.
Sitting on an atypically wide lot for a standard single-family home, Lincoln Park gem 1000 W. Montana St. boasts 3,400-square-feet with 9 total rooms and 4 bedrooms. Tony finishes range from 42” SubZero fridges and a 36” Wolf range to 48" cabinetry and a pair of quartz counters in the kitchen. And with heated concrete floors in your 2.5-car, ground-floor garage, driving in Chiberia is about to get a lot more tolerable.
Gone are the days when run-of-the-mill accouterments are enticing—today’s resident is looking for accents that exceed the average.
Case in point: 9 W. Walton St. #901, a stunner in the Gold Coast, has a sprawling private terrace (12’ x 29’, to be exact), while in-unit, the kitchen wows with O’Brien Harris cabinets and a 14’ island. With heated bathroom floors, a Victoria Albert slipper tub, and walk-in closet, the master suite is no slouch, either—nor is the building itself, which charms with a wine tasting room, indoor spa and pool, and a covered dog run—because we know your four-legged friend is the most important tenant.
