Home buying tips in Lake View: Rare elevator building on residential street

More views from Lake View over the weekend.  
Away from the East Lake View hustle and bustle...the rooftop views were panoramic.

We brought our clients to a rare penthouse condo in a small newer construction (circa 2000) elevator building located on the quiet residential  500 block of West Oakdale.  The three beds, two baths home with garage is asking $599,000 (not my listing). Rare because most newer construction boutique elevator buildings are located on busy streets like Ashland and Halsted with mixed commercial and residential. This small building (only 10 units) affords this terrific location and rooftop deck view.

There are only a handful of these types of buildings on the North Side and units typically sell well.  We felt the "razzamatazz" of the elevator building, location and roof top deck would do it...but these clients we're not having it. We see stairs in their future.
