Buena Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Buena Park

More than a sub-neighborhood of UptownBuena Park is a full-fledged, self-sufficient community that has perfected the art of active lakeside living. A waterfront golf course, public beach, off-leash dog park and protected boat harbor are all within walking distance of your front door, not to mention amazing restaurants, happening bars and reputable theaters. Of course the warmer weather months are when things are really swinging in Buena Park. Folks can't resist Lake Michigan's draw — sun, sand and surf — a relaxing vacation spot located right in Chicago. But even when the wind bites at your nose and the beach is deserted, Buena Park bumps up the coziness with lots of comfy coffee houses, belly-warming eateries and welcoming neighborhood pubs.

Buena Park Real Estate

Although it's officially been part of Chicago for more than 100 years, Buena Park hasn't entirely lost its suburban feel. The residential enclave consists of tranquil, leafy streets lined with turn-of-the-century Georgian and Prairie School mansions and single-family homes nestled comfortably on spacious lots—many of which have their own driveways.

Buena Park's Hutchinson Street was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1977. The street, originally called Kenesaw Terrace, is home to one of the city's best collections of Prairie-style residences, many of which were designed by famed architect George W. Maher. Other distinct designs found up and down Hutchinson Street (and the rest of the neighborhood) include Classical Revival, Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque. For the architecture buffs, this north side Chicago street offers a unique perspective on residential construction from 1890 through 1920.

Buena Park real estate also has several large, vintage apartment buildings housing people of all walks of life, from single young adults to new families to retirees. Along Marine Drive—the neighborhood's prime stretch of property—high-rise condominiums, townhomes and single-family houses offer residents beautiful views of the lakefront.
