About Kate Wainwright
Kate Wainwright; originally from the south coast of England, I moved to Chicago in 1998 with my husband Ashley. We loved the City on arrival, and partifcularly liked Andersonville/ Edgewater where we bought and renovated an old colonial house in 2002. The neighborhood is fun, convenient and friendly, and we now feel very much at home within a warm and eclectic circle of friends. After many years of global travelling for large corporates, I had Edwin in 2007 and decided to stop checking myself in and sit on the other side of the fence. Numerous hotel stays have made me realise that travelling is both fun and tiring, and so Magnolia Studios excels at providing essential comforts. We aim to send you home feeling relaxed and refreshed after sleeping in super comfortable beds, and after being in a vintage building that is private, relaxing and completely renovated. We're on hand to help with any aspect of your stay, or if you know your way around, we just let you enjoy.
Kate Wainwright purchased this Studio in 2002
Why Kate Wainwright chose Edgewater
We loved the house at first sight, but what really made it for us was the original Chicago Coach House that was part of it. Our architect, somewhat of a Chicago historian told us how few of these are left in Chicago. These are now the studio apartments.
What makes this Studio unique
We are 5 minutes from the beach and Lake Michigan, and 30 minutes from downtown on the 'L' train or Lake Shore Drive. Andersonville is well equipped with some great eclectic shops and some the best restaurants and bars in the city.

My Favorite Place to Stay in Chicago
Right off the El stop, clean, modern cozy studio, no fuss, easy to find. Beautiful little courtyard.
Week long stay with every convenience of home
Visiting a large, energetic urban center like Chicago is exciting. On the flip side, I like staying at a place where I can re-charge my batteries, enjoy nice amenities, leisurely self-catered continental breakfasts and a good night's sleep. Magnolia Studios meets all my 'go-to' qualifications. The unit is accurately depicted in listing photos. And the lush, gardens surrounding the carriage house building mirror the leafy neighborhood street outside As the stay lasted a week, appreciated access to washer/dryer on site. Kitchen got daily use after grocery-shopping at WholeFoods grocery nearby. I did not bring a car this visit. Walking to food/drugstores nearby was easy. The Edgewater location was excellent for Lyft rideshare used the entire week. Conscious decision to not rely on public transportation or do much walking. Rideshare was good decision for me. Studio unit on the second floor with a series of stairs to reach the top. As one of the party recovering from hip surgery, the stairs did not create major problems. More than adequate number of outlets for re-charging electronics. Spacious closets to hold a week's worth of clothes. Shower and strong showspray were a relaxing way to decompress after touring. Next time, would like to walk to the lake shore and start of the Lakefront Trail near 'Hollywood Beach'. Would definitely return for another stay at Magnolia Studio.
A true gem
Beautiful neighborhood, lovely accommodations. Walking distance to great restaurants and subway. Won’t stay anywhere else when back in Chicago!
The studio was perfect for visiting our daughter at Loyola. Was clean, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Bed was very comfortable. Loved the rain shower head. Everything brand new. Looks out on lovely courtyard garden. Very quick walk to the red line with easy access to Loyola (just a couple of stops) and a quick train ride right into down town. Kate was very responsive and made everything easy. Will return!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write and for being so kind. I'm glad that our place worked so well for you and hope that the year at Loyola goes well. I would love to see you again next time and again, huge thanks.
Convenient with a wonderful garden.
This studio has everything you need! It is close to red line and it was simple to get to and from Wrigley Field. Kate is a wonderful host and stays in touch to make sure you have all you need. Linda Swann
Fabulous studio; fully equipped; terrific hostess.
Can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Chicago now. Comfortable, quiet and very pleasant. Will definitely be back!
Magnolia Studios is in Edgewater/ Andersonville which is a lakefront community area on the North Side of the city of Chicago. It is one of Chicago's most historic and yet funky neighborhoods. With some of Chicago's best restaurant and bar experiences nearby. Whether you choose the HopLeaf pub (voted no.1 beer pub in Chicago) or one our favorites, Ras Daschen truly excellent Ethiopian cuisine.
We are 5 minutes from the Beach and the Lake Shore pathway. We are also within very easy access to the city center which can be reached easily by train or car.
