Location, location, location. These lakefront homes have it — and then some.

Given its proximity to the lake, these north side communities have beautiful (and often pricey) homes nestled along Lake Michigan.

The master bathroom features an oversized steam shower with dual rainfall showerheads — plus a freestanding Victoria + Albert tub enclosed within the shower. Pretty cool, right? The remaining bathrooms are noteworthy, too, incorporating marble detailing, intricate tile, industrial fixtures, and designer wallpaper.
