|You've seen it! You love it! Edgewater Beach Apartments (EBA) building at 5555 N Sheridan Road, Chicago IL 60640 (all photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty unless otherwise noted).|
|The bright living room and dining rooms need some love. The huge apartment has formal rooms and many original details. Photo Eldorrado Chicago Real Estate|
|Great west views from the unit (lake views will cost you more!)|
The Bryn Mawr Historic District and surrounding blocks offer dozens of shops, cafes and restaurants like Starbucks, Francesca's Bryn Mawr outside your door. Mariano's grocery store is a few blocks down on North Sheridan and the building is adjacent to lakefront paths and the beach. The CTA Red Line stop at Bryn Mawr is a couple blocks from the Edgewater Beach Apartments. The buyers will "car-less" when visiting their city home!
|EBA's huge swimming pool and room built for a Wes Anderson movie! The pool restrooms, shower and locker room area have been renovated not too long ago.|
|Client Mark with real estate attorney Kent Novit.|
18 apartments have sold in the last 12 months at Edgewater Beach Apartments. Prices range from $82,500 for a studio apartment to $425,000 for an updated 2000 sq/ft three beds, two and one-half baths home. The design of the building, views and various updates make each apartment home truly unique!
Lakeview Clark and Belmont Starbucks closed for renovation, BUT, don't worry eight more Starbucks are nearby
|Keep walking for your Frappuccino|
They've directed me to nearby stores. Okay the Lincoln and Damen location is a stretch. That giant Starbucks at Sheffield and Addison is really weird too. I can't see that lasting too much longer as a regular store concept.
