What I love about my home and neighborhood- There are so many things I love about this home--probably too many to name--but here are a few that come to mind immediately..... *We looked at a lot of homes before buying this. They were vanilla square boxes and small. When we saw this, we fell in love. Our home is the perfect size and layout with 1800 sprawling square feet. It feels spacious yet comfortable. *I love the flow of our home. We have convertible spaces and many separate rooms. *The natural light and fresh air is amazing. We face North and West. We clear the building next to us and have light all day, and the sunsets are gorgeous. *We chose this building because of the location, full-time doorman, private elevator to only 2 units per floor, plus the concrete which makes it exceptionally quiet, among other amenities. *I will miss stepping out my door and catching the 146 or 135 express bus to downtown within 30 seconds of leaving home. *I will also miss the lake. Getting to the lakefront only takes about a minute. We strolled along the lake in the evenings and watched the lake and sky change colors as the sun set. It's beautiful and peaceful. *Talk about a variety of dining options--we have it all just one block to the West, and they do contactless pick-up and delivery! *I sincerely hope the next owner can create as many wonderful memories in this home as we have
