There are so many great homes in the Lakeshore area. This one is an early Christmas present! Locals will know this home for its extravagant Christmas light show – consistently rated as one of the most popular in the city. The owner is very houseproud and last year told me about renovations and improvements made to the original structure (all while wearing a Santa suit and passing out candy canes). It seems to have been a duplex originally, but now I believe it is a single family residence. It is a great holiday visit, but also tour the area in the daytime. There is an Isenhour home on Bridgeport and some great homes on Seeley and Manor just around the block.

Property Type: Residential
Year Built: 1974
Sq. Footage: 3706 (per PVA)

This is an amateur Christmas video shot at the house in 2009. I believe when kymodern attended last year it was a larger display.

What seems like a jumble of children’s blocks and a hodgepodge of materials is actually a very striking home at 2105 Lakeside Drive. Surprisingly large and complex, it is best viewed from other angles so take a drive and enjoy this residence and other great homes in the Edgewater/Lakeside Drive areas including some mid century modern gems by Isenhour.
