118 East Erie Street, Unit 26A
Magnificent Mile

Feeling attached to that bonkers chandelier over the dining table or the tufted headboard in the bedroom? You’re in luck: The unit’s being sold fully furnished. And fully serviced too, as it’s part of the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Which means room service on nights when Grubhub won’t cut it. SEE MORE HERE

33W295 Surrey Road
Wayne, IL

For the king of the nightcap: The master bedroom suite in this 15,000-square-foot pad has its own wet bar. If that doesn’t do it for you, check out the wine cellar. Impressed yet? SEE MORE HERE

155 West Burton Place, Unit 2
Old Town

The MCA is less than a mile and a half away. You can gaze at Murakami’s pop art all day, but come night, you’ll want to head to this former artist live/work space – complete with tile mosaics and stained glass. SEE MORE HERE

1342 North Hoyne Avenue
Wicker Park

The actual park is only two blocks away. But that’s not really a selling point on this prairie-style house. Here’s why: The double-lot backyard comes with a fire pit and two outdoor grills. Only time you’ll need to leave is in the winter — it’s a good idea to let the park district handle the skating rink. SEE MORE HERE

1094 Pine Street
Winnetka, IL

Tree-lined street, curb appeal and a 15-minute walk to the Metra are all pluses for the family man. But it’s the backyard pool that’ll really make you dad of the year. SEE MORE HERE

623 West Arlington Place
Lincoln Park

The standard city lot is 25 by 125 feet – puny compared to this 50-by-175-foot lot in East Lincoln Park. And while it’s a whole lotta house (five bedrooms, 10,500 square feet, two designated laundry and mud rooms), it’s also a whole lotta yard. Bring your basketball. SEE MORE HERE

2123 West Erie Street
West Town

We’ve been told West Town is where savvy Chicagoans are buying today. If that’s you, consider this newly built home, with three floors of contemporary design and wood details to warm it up (see: accent wall and staircase). And if you need an extra shot of cozy, your new Saturday morning spot, C.C. Ferns, should help. SEE MORE HERE
