Hermosa Real Estate

If you were around for the Spanish lesson earlier, you know the name Hermosa says something about this northwest side Chicago neighborhood. And with new construction homes and a small wave of renovations going on among the area’s older houses, we think the founders got the name just right.

The majority of housing in Hermosa is found in the detached single-family form. More specifically, the neighborhood hosts a mixture of one- and two-story homes that range from brick ranches and bungalows to classic frame houses with siding. Many of these properties have modest lawn space, back patios great for cookouts, and good-size windows overlooking the front porch that let in plenty of light.

Some vintage lofts and apartments reside above storefronts, providing the feeling of small town living while others stand on green lots, giving residents a little extra space. Newer condominiums and townhomes add to the assortment of housing options in Hermosa neighborhood. Townhomes in the area are known to come complete with hardwood floors, granite countertops and private decks. Still, the old-school vintage-style lofts provide the uniqueness that some people look for when shopping for a home. Inside these elegant lofts, you will most likely find the original woodwork, hardwood floors, crown molding and even a fireplace great for those chilly Chicago winters.

No matter which type of dwelling suits your living style best, Hermosa is bound to have a place that fits your tastes—and your budget.
