Learn More About Bucktown

Situated to the north of Wicker Park and northwest of the Loop, Bucktown's great location makes accessing the downtown simple, while the area itself retains a much calmer, more laid-back allure. Bucktown is largely made up of residential properties with some dating back to the early 20th century, although a great coffee shop (Ipsento) and trendy bar (Charleston) are just right around the corner.

It's impressive affordability and convenient location attracted the attention of artists in search of a reasonably priced home to foster their creativity, but has since begun to attract the attention of buyers with a preference for trendy, modern homes. With bars on nearly every corner and easy access to the The Loop, shopping centers, and several major thoroughfares, Bucktown real estate is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after markets in the city for families and working professionals.

Over the past decade, the Bucktown real estate market has undergone a major makeover. Just 10 years ago, this area was more known for its collection of historic brownstone row homes and turn-of-the-century houses. Today, the most common types of architecture in the neighborhood include beautifully restored brownstone buildings, new two-and-three flat buildings, converted lofts, new condominiums, and an increasing number of upscale properties.

Bucktown used to provide a more affordable alternative to higher priced areas such as West Loop and Lincoln Park. However, housing prices have increased in recent years with the redevelopment of the area, increasing the range of home prices from $200,000 to easily

It's transformed into one of the top up-and-coming neighborhoods in all of Chicago and features some of the most modern properties available.

Like many neighborhoods in Chicago, Bucktown's storied past has shaped the community it is today. What all started as a popular place for Polish settlers in the 1830s. This working-class neighborhood derived its name from the presence of several goat farms during this time. More recently, in the 1990s, Bucktown became the place of choice for budget-conscious artists looking for a reasonably priced home close to downtown, which ushered in an entirely new look and feel to the community— one where creativity and art are intertwined at every turn. At this same time, old buildings were eventually repurposed into trendy loft spaces and stylish low-rise condominiums, attracting a new group of young, white-collar professionals to the area.
