Gold Coast Neighborhood
There’s gold on the coast, that’s for sure! The Gold Coast neighborhood has a rich and illustrious heritage. First established after the Great Chicago Fire by millionaire Potter Palmer, the newly created stretch of lakefront attracted Chicago’s sophisticated elite. Their tastes and sensibilities are reflected in the stately mansions peppered throughout this prestigious neighborhood. On the high end, exquisitely crafted multi-million-dollar homes can be had, each equipped with museum-quality finishes such as marble tiling, breathtaking staircases, and Old-World embellishments.
For those buyers seeking more modest homes, i.e. less spacious than 8+ room estates but assuredly gorgeous nonetheless, have their pick from glorious townhomes to high-rise lakefront condos that are outfitted with top-of-the-line amenities and high-end touches from the inside out. All in, Gold Coast properties are not only some of the most stunning Chicago homes you will find, but also represent our heritage at its best. Property styles are sure to suit all tastes, with a unique mixture of Queen Annes, Richardsonian Romanesque, and the Georgian Revival styles as well as modern lake-view condos.
Situated just north of Streeterville, Gold Coast dwellers enjoy convenient access to Lake Michigan with some of the city’s most picturesque lakefront scenery. Bounded by Oak Street and East Lake Shore Drive to the south, North Avenue to the north, Lake Michigan to the east, and Clark Street to the west, the Gold Coast neighborhood has access to some of the most beloved shops, lakeview parks, beaches, and amenities of the entire city. Michigan Avenue and Oak Street provide plenty of distractions for upscale shopping and when the sun sets those craving a bit of nightlife need not go further than Division and Rush Streets for their revelries.
The Gold Coast streets may not be paved with gold; however, they certainly glitter and sparkle with the vast amenities, including shopping, restaurants, and lake front views to enjoy.
The Gold Coast was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Undoubtedly the crown jewels of the neighborhood include the Astor Street District and the James Charnley House (which was designed by Louis Sullivan with junior draftsman Frank Lloyd Wright). The Charnley House is home to the Society of Architectural Historians who give walking tours to architecture buffs.
