1020 West Roscoe Living Room1020 W. Roscoe, Unit 1W in Chicago is the perfect family home in the middle of Lakeview.  My family and I loved living in the space for the past 6 years, and all of us, especially our children, had a hard time saying goodbye.

Rare is it to find a home that is 1920’s-sturdy construction with a completely modernized interior and fantastic modern fixtures and amenities.  It’s size and centralized location cannot be beat.  Big enough to house a growing family, the space itself is abundant, boasting 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 3000 square feet.

1020 West Roscoe Guest SuiteIt has the perfect combination of a master suite on the same floor as rooms for several kids, which was so important to us when ours were babies.  Even better, it is joined by a lower guest suite, which is big enough for relatives to come and have their privacy.  And being on the first floor was always nice when we didn’t have to haul strollers up flights of stairs!

The location in the Hawthorne Neighbors area is just the best, as it is an easy walk to several parks, play-lots, and the lakefront, as well as the great restaurants on Southport and Broadway.  The exposed brick walls and high ceilings give it tremendous character, and separate it from the average slumpstone, walk-up, three flat.  In short, this home is a real gem, and super-rare to find in the thriving neighborhood that is Lakeview.

Parks and Transportation:

It wouldn’t be Chicago without having great proximity to all the wonderful parks and ways to get around town.  For jogging/biking our favorite is to head down Belmont or Addison and catch the Chicago Lakefront Path.  For local outings to green space, we tend to frequent some great spots maintained by the Chicago Park District including Sheil Park, Cubs Park (Margaret Donahue Park), Hawthorne and Nettlehorst playgrounds (schools),  or the Dog Beach at Belmont Harbor

For public transportation, our location at 1020 West Roscoe can’t be beat.  You’re walking distance from the Belmont El stop which offers riders access to the Red, Blue and Purple line trains as well as express busses at Belmont and Sheridan to whisk city workers downtown.  Suburb commuters can even catch the METRA at the Ravenswood Metra stop which is only a couple miles North.
