The things I’ve loved about my condo at 747 W Cornelia can be broken into three simple categories; 1) the building, 2) the dynamite location and 3) the unit itself.

The Building:

During the more temperate month when the weather agreeable, I’ve put potted plants on the back patio and set-up the charcoal grill.  It’s an inviting a communal space perfect for making some mixed drinks and invite friends over.  This and the fact that the bicycle storage room are on the same level allow me to use these amenities and not lug groceries, bikes, etc. up multiple flights of stairs.  The building and neighbors also add much to the charm of my home as everyone is incredibly helpful, tidy and friendly.

The Location:  (click here for a full Walkscore)

I am being completely honest when I say that my home is a “walker’s dream” for everything you could imagine.  Some of my favorites, (but not all) are as follows:

  1. Joining in the festivities for the Halsted Halloween Parade
  2. Walking up to Wrigley Field and buying last minute tickets to catch a Cubs game in the evening, (without having to worry about parking)!
  3. It’s great having 3 grocery stores within a 3 block radius—Jewel for you basic purchases, Treasure Island for fun cooking adventures, and Whole Foods for fresh produce and organic fare.
  4. Sleeping late on the weekends thanks to my king size mattress and walking the two blocks over to Ann Sather to meet friends for brunch. World’s best Cinnamon Rolls!
  5. With Lake Michigan being only two blocks from here, I love to wake up and go for a morning run on the lakefront, or take a beach towel to the grassy area with artificial grass for dogs santa monica ca at Addison and the lake front for some sunbathing.
  6. During the winter months, it’s great to have both Starbucks and Caribou Coffee right around the corner. I’ve spent several evenings lounging there with a mug of Hot Chocolate and a good book.
  7. Centrally located to public transportation (Red Line Train, Lake Shore Drive Buses and more), yet far enough away that I never hear it.
  8. The Lake Michigan Bike path is literally blocks away and allows me to disappear from the busy city whenever needed.
  9. The local Halstead business corridor is amazing.  Between this, Clark Street and Belmont – there is just about everything you could ever want or need.
  10. Restaurants – every type of food is easily found in my neighborhood along with personal favorites Las Mananitas (margaritas), HB Restaurant (Upscale American), Taverna 750 (Italian) and Joy’s Noodles and Rice (Thai).

My Condo:

The first thing you’ll notice in my home is the floor.  I simply love the wood floors in my condo. It’s not the click-clacky flooring that’s in most of my friends’ condos. These feel rich, strong and the warm wood tone is great. I also have an amazing amount of large bright windows I love to open up and let the breezes drift through. Everything feels so crisp and fresh and since Cornelia is a residential one-way street, it is often quite quiet even during the day.

When the Chicago weather kicks in, it’s great to have both a central humidifier and air for when it’s either too hot or cold for open windows.  My unit also provides a great amount of storage space in the condo. Between the spacious bedroom closets, the bathroom closet with some Oak Vanity Units for extra storage, the two hallway closets, and the large storage unit there is plenty of room for even the most accomplished of shoppers.

Lastly, It has been wonderful to have a condo that could rent so easily when I needed to move out of town for work. Because of the great location and all of the amenities, this condo is easy to keep rented at a great price.
