Though summer may not last more than a few months in Chicago, getting outside to enjoy the beautiful weather is a must. And although living next to a park is a great way to get some exercise or simply relax, nothing beats having your own private rooftop deck. However, not all rooftop decks and terraces were created equal, as each offer different amenities and come in different shapes and sizes. Each of these spaces impress and will certainly make for solid outdoor entertaining or getting some peace and quiet during the warmer months of the year.
↑ 1834 North Fremont Street We start our list of amazing rooftop decks with this cozy four bedroom Lincoln Park home. Its garage deck sports a covered terrace and greenery. It can be had for $1.5 million.
↑ 3740 North Bosworth Avenue Our next stop is this lovely number in the Southport Corridor. With 5,200 square feet of living space, this six bedroom home ain't no sardine can. It has made a previous appearance on Curbed due to its awesome rooftop deck, however it has taken a $100K price chop since it was first featured and is now up for grabs for $2.195 million.
↑ 2637 North Racine Avenue This home on Racine has the same $2.195 million ask as the last home, but what makes its rooftop deck unique is the built-in wood burning fireplace. This incredible outdoor terrace is perfect for entertaining throughout the summer months.
↑ 1928 North Wood Street The roof deck on this Bucktown home has room for the entire family. Parents can relax with a glass of wine while the children romp around in the simulated grass. This six bedroom home's asking price is $2.249 million.
↑ 100 East Huron Street #4004 Finally, we end our journey with a rooftop space that will make anyone green with envy. At 1,200 square feet, this private terrace is larger than the apartments of many Chicagoans. The outdoor space is right off this home's living room area, and offers incredible views. It has also been recently featured by Chicago Magazine. Located right off the Magnificent Mile, this three bedroom unit can be had for $2.6 million. ·Previous Outdoors Week 2014 posts [Curbed Chicago]
