Chicago Cubs Baseball: Live Near Wrigley Field for $2.4M

Wrigley FieldFor $2.4 million, you could live within five blocks of Wrigley Field and be near one of the greatest baseball parks in the country. You might not have any money left over for Chicago Cubs tickets, which are the most expensive in Major League Baseball. But if you do get tickets, at least you'll be saving money by being able to walk to the stadium and not having to pay for gas, parking or public transportation.

Here are two homes for sale at $2.4 million each to put you within walking distance of Cubs games. If the price is too steep, then at least go visit Wrigley Field and enjoy the ivy-covered outfield walls. You might want to grow some ivy outside on the walls of these homes, too:

The home at 3741 Lakewood Ave. for $2,499,000 is about a five-block walk to Wrigley Field. The home was built this year and has five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. This greystone has beautiful wide-plank hardwood flooring throughout and applied moldings with oversize crowns, giving it a modern, elegant look.

It has a chef's kitchen with walnut cabinets, European-style appliances, handmade backsplash tile over the stove, and Miele built-in coffee system. The master suite has custom mosaic tiling in the bathroom. The third floor has a guest suite, library and deck. The lower level is expansive with a great media room. It also has a three-car garage.

Comparable homes in the neighborhood have an average list price of $2,407,841.

The other home is directly west of Wrigley Field, only a four-block walk. While both homes are stunning, this home at 3616 N. Wayne Ave. looks more elegant, and is a slightly better deal at $2,495,900. The home has five bedrooms and 6.1 bathrooms.

It has a gourmet kitchen, two dishwashers, four en suite bedrooms on the second floor, wood-paneled room, wine cellar, wet bar with dishwasher, central vacuum unit, two laundry rooms, media room with dropdown 9-foot screen, and mudroom with built-ins. There's also an en suite that can be used as a guest area. The radiant heated garage will hold three cars. There's also a penthouse with a roof deck and bonus room.
