Irving Park Real Estate

These days, the neighborhood is a fairly prototypical northwest side community. Irving Park real estate is comprised mostly of two- and three-flat condos, frame houses, and bungalows. Homes in Irving Park feature some of the city's most beautiful architecture, reminiscent of the stately family manors of Oak Park. The five-acre Villa Historic District, located east of Pulaski Road and north of Waveland Avenue, boasts more than 120 architecturally significant bungalows, including two buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

While there are some warehouses and industrial stretches, mostly along the diagonal-running Elston Avenue, the bulk of the neighborhood is middle-class residential favoring family-oriented dwellings. The streets are lined with trees, and once you turn off the main roads, car traffic is minimal. Most blocks are friendly, ethnically mixed communities unto themselves, with backyard barbecues in the summer and pre-work shoveling parties in the winter.
