Edgewater Glen Condos

Edgewater Glen Condos is a product of the Lettvin Development Company. Lettvin has been in the housing business for nearly thirty years and is recognized as one of the premier builders in the Northern Illinois and Chicago area. With their experience and strong reputation, they are working on a new development called Edgewater Glen that is scheduled for completion in 2008.

Located on 5858 Broadway Avenue on the Rosedale Avenue corner, Edgewater Glen is a development consisting of thirty-four luxury condos housed in a six story building. The neighborhood has a well known history of being a rather exclusive community. Once a haven for people who owned summer homes, Edgewater was a Mecca for entertainment, hotels and fine restaurants back in the early 20's through 50's. People flocked there to enjoy summers on the beach and the neighborhood was actually one of the first in the area to install street lights and electricity to individual homes.

Today the area has still retained its past charm and has moved into the twenty first century with grace. Additions to the neighborhood include Loyola University and the Bryn Mawr Historic District. Just a block from Edgewater Glen condos you will find the train station which puts you within minutes of Chicago and all of the attractions there.

The Chicago condo building itself has plenty of amenities and quality features. The condominium grounds are professionally landscaped. Besides the elegant building design, the construction is high grade. The building lobby is furnished and decorated, making it a bright spot upon first entry for residents and visitors alike. The masonry construction is not only handsome but fire resistant. For added structural strength and also sound proofing, there are solid concrete blocks installed between the condo units. Both fire and carbon detection systems are installed along with a sprinkler system in the building and the garage. The garage itself is heated and secure with additional private storage lockers for residents to use. This is great for bikes or sporting equipment or just anything you have a need to store.

A central hot water system provides ample hot water any time you need it. Heating is vented through the floor via a central unit. The condos have energy efficient double glazed windows as well as balcony and patio doors. This feature is a huge aid in heating and cooling costs for the units. The entry way to the building is secure with a video monitoring system in place. And there won't be any slipping or sliding during cold winter weather with the snow melt system in place outside the building.

There are several different floor plans available at Edgewater Glen. Buyers can pick from penthouse units to garden terrace homes or smaller units. Square footage runs from about 880 to 1,900 per unit. All of the homes come with washer and dryer hook ups and are pre wired for telephone, cable and Internet service. The energy efficient heating and cooling system has individual controls in each condo, allowing for adjustment to each owner's personal temperature preference.

Hardwood flooring runs throughout the main living and common areas while wall to wall plush carpeting covers the bedroom floors. The condo walls received double coats of paint, insuring that the fresh, new look remains for some time. Garbage disposal is made easy with trash chutes available on each floor. The doors are solid and have brushed chrome handles and hardware, which is a nice touch. Security is covered with a voice intercom entry system in place.

The kitchens at Edgewater Glen come with a GE stainless steel appliance package. These top of the line energy efficient models make you feel like you're in a chef's kitchen. The refrigerator is roomy and has an icemaker and the gas cook stove has a self-cleaning oven. The microwave comes with a hood and the dishwasher is a five cycle model that won't have any problem getting your cookware clean. A hefty one half horse power under sink garbage disposal can handle all of your food prep waste, making clean up much easier. Chrome faucets are installed on the stainless steel sink, with a pull out spray included. The cabinets are large at thirty-six inches and the counter tops have granite finishes. The floors are either wood or ceramic tile, depending on the plan and there is an optional pantry or dining area offered.

Depending on the condo plan you pick, the bedrooms can have spacious walk-in closets. All of the bedrooms, regardless of plan, have a receptacle wired in for a ceiling fan.

The bathrooms are fitted with large oversized wall mirrors and custom designer vanities that are topped with Corian. The flooring is ceramic tile and there is a recessed medicine cabinet on the wall. Moisture and steam is vented through an exhaust fan. The lighting is also designer and the faucets are made by Kohler. You can opt for separate shower and tub models.

Other upgrades and options available at Edgewater Glen include cherry cabinets in the kitchen, carpet upgrade in the bedrooms, bathroom plumbing fixture upgrade and your pick of available custom paint finishes.

With its elegant design and luxury homes, Edgewater Glen is set to be a good fit for this historic neighborhood.
