W Glenlake Ave, West Ridge

$2,200, 3-Bed/2-Bath

Technically, this gorgeous three-bedroom, two-bathroom is barely in Chicago. Practically, though, it’s just about as good of a deal as you’re going to get (if you own a car or don’t mind an hour-long commute, that is). So, what do you get? Well, 2,000 square feet, a fireplace, in-unit laundry and the fantasy kitchen of any at-home chef’s dreams. Oh, and did we mention that the spacious, private terrace is accessible from the master bedroom? This spot is perfect for those who like a little extra space in their abode and have a taste for the truly global cuisine in nearby Rogers Park, Edgewater or Albany Park, Chicago’s epicenter for Middle Eastern food.

N Pine Grove, Lakeview

$1,800, 1-bed/1-bath

Hey, when you live in Lakeview, you pay for it. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially in the Brewster building. The lobby leads to a stylish maze of metal stairs and halls that wind their way to the skylit ceiling. As for the apartment, the beauty lies in the details a subtle range that blends into the kitchen counter, the plentiful cabinetry, the bay window, the bathroom’s full-tiled walls. Sure, at about 800 square feet, it’s relatively small for the cash you’re splurging, but just think about the location: It’s a 10-minute walk to the beach! Score.

N Campbell Ave, Ukrainian Village, $2,000, 3-bed/2-bath

This second–floor unit straddling the border of Wicker Park and Humboldt Park was recently rehabbed—and you can tell. A quick look inside reveals an open floor plan and a kitchen with granite counters and flawless cabinets. Custom lighting runs throughout the sunny three-bedroom, two-bathroom flat. The best feature is the emptiness: Its 1,500 square feet offers a blank canvas.
