Galewood Real Estate

Because the majority of Galewood homes were built before World War II, the residences in this neighborhood have a stunning luster of antiquity that you won’t find in such abundance in other Chicago neighborhoods.

Situated on wide, well-maintained tree-lined streets are single-family brick homes of all prices and styles: bungalows, Colonial, Georgian and Tudor-style homes have been lovingly maintained by generations of Galewood residents. In fact, many homes here are simply passed down through the family, and that Old World air is apparent on any stroll through the neighborhood. Estates here were built on larger lots, which means they have sprawling yards, ample parking, and plenty of room for home expansion—all common perks of purchasing a home in this area.

Because so many residences were being built between the 1920s and mid ‘30s, it wasn’t uncommon to share blueprints, and it can be fun to walk through the neighborhood and find your home’s twin. Actually, it’s fun to walk through this neighborhood just for the heck of it—the unique architectural styles anchored by landscaped yards makes a journey through Galewood one of the most magnificent promenades in the city.

The average sale price for a three-bedroom single-family detached home in this northwest side Chicago neighborhood is $320,000, although there are several dwellings this size that sell for over $400,000. Some of the larger Galewood homes on the market cost over $600,000, but the average sale price for a four to six-bedroom house is around $336,000.
