Peace and privacy for a premium

Urban SandboxLast week, I wondered why these fancy Lincoln Park duplexes weren’t moving. Today, I’d like to follow that up with another question: Why would someone who is spending close to $1 million on an urban home want to share walls (and, in the case of those duplexes, ceilings and floors) with the neighbors?

In many cases, people buy these places to start families, and families mean children and often dogs, which are the source of plenty of unwanted noise. So if you’ve got the resources (an extra, say, $1.5 to 2 million), why not just go for the gusto and get yourself a single-family home?

Here’s a little roundup of some of the available single-family homes in Chicago’s North Side that appear the New Homes Quick Guide this month:
