Shining a light on Beacon Street's 4700 block

Beacon Square, 4716 - 4724 N Beacon St, Chicago

If there’s one thing I learned during my Uptown walk-around last fall, it’s that almost every block of neighborhoody avenues like Kenmore and Winthrop is home to some kind of conversion or new-construction development. As I browsed Jameson Real Estate‘s new development listings yesterday, I gathered that one block — the 4700 block of North Beacon Street in Sheridan Park — has been a popular spot for developers in recent years.

Beacon Hill, 4710 N Beacon St, ChicagoJameson is marketing three different developments on the stretch of Beacon between Leland and Lawrence avenues. The block’s only new-construction development with homes for sale is Beacon Hill, an eight-unit building at 4710 N Beacon St with two three-bedroom / two-baths listed in the $430s. The 1,750 square-foot homes have east-facing balconies and wood-burning fireplaces and are finished with oak floors, granite countertops, subway tile backsplashes, and marble baths. Monthly assessments for the units are estimated at $190. (Rate and review.)

Beacon Square, 4716 - 4724 N Beacon St, ChicagoNext door, at 4716 – 4724 N Beacon St, is the street’s largest active conversion, a 37-unit courtyard building named Beacon Square. Jameson’s Web site lists four two-bedrooms for sale in the building ranging from the $210s to $290s. The homes have walnut hardwood floors and cabinetry, stone countertops, stainless-steel appliances, limestone and mosaic tile bath finishes, and in-unit laundry. The listings promote the block’s easy street parking, suggesting a lack of deeded spaces. (Rate and review.)

Beacon Terrace, 4701 - 4709 N Beacon St, ChicagoAcross the street at 4701 – 4709 N Beacon St is the eight-unit Beacon Terrace conversion. There, four two-bedroom / two-baths with 1,350 to 1,500 square feet are listed from the $310s to the $390s, or $237 to $263 a square foot. The units feature outdoor decks, hardwood floors, crown molding, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances (including a wine cooler), marble baths with Jacuzzi tubs, and gas fireplaces. Each home comes with a gated parking space. Assessments are estimated at $159 to $183 a month. (Rate and review.)

Beacon Pointe, 4749 N Beacon St, ChicagoThe lone new-home listing on the block claimed by a broker other than Jameson is the only condo left at Beacon Pointe, a six-unit conversion at 4749 N Beacon St. That home is a 2,000 square-foot three-bedroom / two-bath priced in the $420s, or about $251 a square foot. It has hardwood floors, crown molding, two fireplaces, a wet bar, and a wine cooler. Siamak Jahangiri of Mak Realty Group has the listing. (Rate and review.)
