Lake Shore Drive Living | 3440 N Lake Shore Dr #7E


When I was younger, I used to daydream about living on Lake Shore Drive. Overlooking the water and boasting such beautiful architecture, I couldn’t even fathom what I had to do to live there. How many millions did I need? While there are tons of luxury priced condos on Lake Shore Drive (one sold for a casual $2.76 million this year), I’m thrilled to say 3440 N Lake Shore Dr #7E (priced at $175,000) is a dream you can actually turn into a reality.

Some years ago, that dream became real for current owners Josh & Taylor, who loving the lakefront & the neighborhood, knew they could live a balanced life at #7E—one filled with both leisure & activity. While the balcony was a major selling point (Josh loves that feeling when you catch a nice breeze while reading a book & of course, grilling), it was also the location that ultimately landed them on Lake Shore Drive.  Avid runners & bikers, the Lakefront Trail was perfect for biking to & from work every day while also logging in some miles on the running paths. On the weekends though, you’d find them at brunch at Ann Sather or hitting up another favorite neighborhood restaurant or watering hole. It was their true urban oasis.

And while some Lake Shore Drive buildings are known for being poorly maintained & out of date, I let out a sigh of relief when I walked into 3440 N Lake Shore Drive. Greeted by beautiful holiday decor, I walked into a meticulously maintained and updated lobby and checked in with the incredibly friendly door staff (even Josh & Taylor mentioned them when talking about their favorite parts of the building). The best part? I caught exchanges of neighbors saying “Hello” and catching up for the day—something I always love to see.

Charming Lakeview urban oasis on Chicago’s coveted Lake Shore Drive. Walk into this freshly painted 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo featuring wall to wall windows with west facing views.  Great for entertaining, host dinner parties in the separate dining room or enjoy a meal cooked in the updated Chef’s kitchen which showcases modern cabinets, granite countertops & stainless steel appliances. The fresh bathroom includes a newer vanity, flooring & shower tiling. Relax on the spacious, private balcony overlooking Hawthorne Street’s historical architecture or bask in the beautiful warm hues of each evening’s sunset. This well-maintained high-rise has 24-hour door staff, on-site management, a fitness room (that you’ll actually want to use) & an express bus that stops in front of your door! Within minutes of everything you could ever want—the Lakefront & trails, restaurants, shopping, Wrigley & more—you’ll love to call 3440 N. Lake Shore Dr #7E home. Parking can be rented monthly for $185. 

Whether it be a stepping stone to your dream home, your forever home or a calculated investment, 3440 N Lake Shore Dr #7E is definitely worth seeing in person.
