I read somewhere that there are only 22 single family homes in Chicago located directly on Lake Michigan.
Correct or not, it is rare to have a property directly on the lake within the city limits.
This 4-bedroom home at 7237 S. South Shore Drive in the South Shore neighborhood is apparently one of those unique properties.
The house has 2 PIN numbers with one of the lots extending all the way to the lake.
Built in 1903, the house has a wood burning fireplace and wood beamed ceilings on the first floor.
One thing it’s missing is a garage. But it has three parking spaces on the driveway.
Oh- and it’s got a pretty nice beach.
Tracey Taylor at Rubloff has the listing. See more pictures and a virtual tour here.
See the property website here (check out the additional pictures of the backyard and lake area.)
