Among all the supertall, super thin highrise condo towers there is a smattering of townhomes in Chicago’s River North, Streeterville, and Gold Coast neighborhoods. If you are looking for that treelined suburban sanctuary and a place that feels more like a home than a concrete jungle then you have to stay tuned as we are showcasing 1 of the best townhome communities in the Gold Coast!
The Oak Club is located across from the majestic Newberry Library and Washington Square Park (one of our top dog-friendly parks) The Oak Club was built in 1995 and consists of 52 townhomes ranging in size from 1200 to 3000+ sq. ft. The Smaller units are stacked so you have one on the ground floor and one above. The larger units have 3 private floors so you don't have neighbors above or below you. Each unit has 9ft ceilings, hardwood floors, a fireplace, open kitchens, walk-in closets, and a washer/dryer. Outside you will have (depending on the unit) a yard, terrace, or roof deck and a 1 or 2-car garage. The location doesn’t get any better as it is just steps away from the Viagra Triangle noted for restaurants the likes of Hugo’s Frog Bar, Gibson, and Luxbar. If you have children it is also located in the highly-rated Ogden Elementary School which is a huge bonus. The complex is gated (no doorman) and is pet-friendly with no weight restrictions. Another bonus is the low assessments when compared to a highrise. Prices run from the upper $700’s to just over the $2M mark.
