Discover Wicker Park Real Estate
Wicker Park homes for sale are available for a wide range of prices, from around $300,000 to over $1 million, but have a middle range of $500,000 to $600,000. In contrast to many other Chicago neighborhoods, Wicker Park still has a number of detached single-family homes, which are usually on the high end of the market due to the privacy and additional space they offer.
These homes can be classic Chicago architecture, dating back 150 years, or they can have been built yesterday. Either way, they'll generally provide you with over 4,000 square feet of living space across a floor plan that include three or four bedrooms on the upper floors and a kitchen and living room on the main floor. No matter when they were constructed, these homes will have fully modern interiors with fireplaces, granite countertops, and the latest top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. You'll also find spacious master suites on the third floor, as well as modest balconies. Finally, these buildings typically have enough rooms that you can convert one or two of them into family rooms or home offices, even if you have a couple of kids.
Meanwhile, Wicker Park condos for sale are generally a mix of duplexes and apartments in low-rise buildings, with three bedroom units available above $500,000 and two-bedroom units available above $300,000. The former generally have over 1,500 square feet of living space, while the latter have closer to 1,000 square feet, though these numbers vary depending on the style of unit. You'll generally have your own parking space, though these spaces aren't always indoors. The interiors of these condos generally employ open floor plans that make it easy to cook while still carrying on a conversation with your guests in the sitting room, and you'll also find you have a ton of storage space. Most condos on the market boast recent upgrades, including remodels of the kitchen and master bath. You might even find a condo with a built-in Jacuzzi! One minor feature to look for is new windows, as the windows on older buildings sometimes have insulation problems in the winter.
Finally, location is everything in Wicker Park. With plenty of tree-lined, one-way side streets, it's possible to live only a stone's throw from cool shops and restaurants while still enjoying quiet and privacy. Look for homes in these side streets and be prepared to pay a little extra for them—it's worth it!
Life in Wicker Park
Wicker Park is known as one of the hippest neighbourhoods in America, with thriving arts and culture. The music scene in particular is renowned, with many successful bands getting their start at Wicker Park's music bars, so if you're looking to discover the next big sensation before anyone else, living here will be a dream.
In addition to music, Wicker Park has seen a steady influx of innovative bars and restaurants, high-end fashion boutiques, and unique shops over the last few decades. You can get your groceries at a number of independent grocers, or relax on the terrace of hip European-style cafes. Another cool feature of Wicker Park is that businesses are always changing, as rising rent prices cause your favourite bar or shop to leave and be replaced with something even better!
On the more practical side of things, Wicker Park is close to the Loop and very well connected to the rest of the city by means of public transit, so you can get to work or anywhere else you might need to go without any fuss.
