Lakeview is a fun and inviting North Side enclave nestled between Diversey Parkway to the south, Irving Park Road to the north, Ravenswood Avenue to the west, and dazzling Lake Michigan to the east. The area is a favorite destination among Chicago locals and visitors alike, with good reason.
Lakeview may be most famous for historic Wrigley Field, home of the beloved Chicago Cubs and their devoted legions of “Wrigleyville” fans. But the sports scene here also thrives along the 2-mile stretch of shoreline that gives Lakeview its namesake: enjoy boating and a dog-friendly beach at Belmont Harbor, running and biking on the Lakefront Trail, tennis at Waveland Courts, and 9 holes at the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, all with fantastic views of Lake Michigan and Chicago’s stunning skyline.
This popular neighborhood is also an entertainment haven, known for its fresh finds in arts and culture. Take in a show at the Music Box Theatre, experience a performance by Blue Man Group, attend a comedy club or street festival, and shop for vintage guitars, records, and antiques. There is also a wealth of choices for food and refreshments to fuel the fun. Whether searching for great coffee or cocktails, a quick bite or fine dining, there is something to suit every taste.
As a destination with something for everyone, Lakeview real estate offers a wide variety of properties and price points. The neighborhood is an eclectic and stylish mix of modern high-rises, a historic and trendy condos, stately townhomes, and luxurious single-family homes.
