Luxury Homes in Edgewater are going green. Green is definitely catching on in Andersonville and Lakewood Balmoral Edgewater in Chicago. A walk thru the neighborhood and you see drought tolerant landscaping, permeable sidewalks and patios, glass curtain walls, rain barrel collection systems, and open front porches.

I toured five homes last weekend on the Edgewater Home Tour, and you will see homes where the owners elected to keep the vintage features and systems that are also earth friendly and energy conscious. Keeping the original hot water and steam radiant heating systems instead of replacing with gas forced air systems that are not green.

There are lots of green features that are hidden in the Luxury Green Homes in Edgewater in Chicago. These include solar powered attic fans, on demand hot water systems, and green insulation.
