Uptown Community Area is better known for its lakefront adjacent location, condos, apartment towers and a myriad local businesses. However it is home to pockets of impressive single family homes nestled within the urban hustle and bustle. The proximity to the lake, transit and average size of the homes result in a relatively hefty median price.
