Lakefront? Big whoop. Practically on the sand, now that's a bit less common. The malignantly-formed rear end of this Edgewater condo/townhouse complex may look downright terrible when meandering by on the lakefront trail, but all those bulbous windows add up to pretty awesome interiors. The 3-bed, 5,000-square-foot home has five-and-a-half bathrooms, a private elevator, a full-floor master suite w/ transparent spa bath, conservatory-like living spaces, two large decks, and an attached 4-car garage. It embraces the lake to a degree where you might need a break after a while— you know, to take in some urban scenes. New-to-market, the home last sold for $865K. It's now after $1.495M.
