3400 SF Single Family Home Steps From Lake in Historic Buena Park!

Located in: Chicago
Large groups love this Buena Park house, featuring 3,400 square feet of big, bright & open living space. Pull into a private drive with two tandem parking spots and check yourself in with the keypad. No shared walls here—this is a rare single-family residence in Buena Park, near Montrose Beach and Lake Shore Dr.

Note: the home was built in the early 1900s, and some fixtures do show their age. On the plus side, this also means lovely details like ornate fireplaces & Victorian parquet floors.

Chicago’s historic-meets-modern personality is on fully display at both the house and its surroundings in Buena Park, a longstanding residential neighborhood with tree-lined streets and 19th and 20th century architecture to admire.

We're in a great location for first-time visitors, with much of the city at your fingertips. Drive (or Uber) just 15 minutes to downtown. Walk a couple blocks to lovely Montrose Beach for a beach day. Easily access Lake Shore Drive to check out Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park, and catch the Red Line just two blocks away.

Inside, modern amenities mix with the home's classic features: free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a digital lock for easy check-ins, a full-size washer and dryer, a 6-burner gas range in the kitchen, and contemporary furniture for a clean, minimalist feel.


One of this home’s best features is its size. Your group of up to 10 can spread out over two stories and socialize in three lounge/conversation areas. Five sofas. Four flat screen TVs. Three fireplaces. And one feast-worthy dining table for all 10 guests.

Chicago’s foodie scene offers something for everyone, but sometimes you just want a quiet night in with your favorite people. The full, open kitchen can help with that! Get your dinner ingredients at one of several grocery stores within walking distance; Whole Foods is just a short drive away.


This home has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 9 beds, all with barefoot-friendly carpets and crisp white linens. Options include:

Bedroom 1: King-size master suite with attached bath
Bedroom 2: Two twin-size beds
Bedroom 3: Queen bed + original spiral staircase
Bedroom 4: Queen bed + twin bed + huge closet
Bath 1: Master bath with double sinks + tub/shower combo
Bath 2: Shared back with tub/shower combo

Take a step back from the high-rise hustle and bustle! Buena Park is heaven for architecture buffs—the area's Prairie-style homes landed it on the National Register of Historic Places and its tree-lined streets are perfect for strolling. Check out Graceland Cemetery and Historic Hutchinson Street for more peeks into the past.

You'll forget you're in the city when you explore the natural beauty of Montrose Beach and the Lakefront Trail (2 blocks). But you ARE in the city, and we've got the culture and dining experiences to prove it. Buena Park is well connected by transit and walkable to several Chicago classics.

Wrigley Field is just a 20-minute stroll, too. Haul home your spoils from a day shopping the Magnificent Mile, a 10-minute drive or Uber ride away.

Chicago’s most extensive train route, the Red Line, stops just a few blocks away, at Sheridan and Irving Park. Take the L straight downtown to The Art Institute, Navy Pier, or Field Museum (30 minutes) with the newly rehabbed Wilson red/purple CTA stop only 3.5 blocks away (a 10-minute walk).

Bus lines run in all directions, with multiple stops in the neighborhood. Hop the 36 Broadway heading south to explore up-and-coming Pilsen. The 146 'express' bus will take you to the Magnificent Mile in about 20 minutes.

Or rent a Divvy bike share across the street and explore the 18-mile Lakefront Trail along Lake Michigan.

If you bring vehicles, two parking spaces are provided, plus additional free parking on the street. Access to Lake Shore Drive is nearby.
