Jefferson Park Real Estate


Residents from all walks of life like Jefferson Park because there is an incredible variety of housing available. As it is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, the generations of residential design and architecture are apparent in styles from early Victorian to 1950s ranch houses to sleek new condo development.

Many of Jefferson Park's earliest homes are still standing on lots of green grass, having been rejuvenated to their original splendor. The neighborhood's residential streets are edged with well-kept single-family Georgians, Victorians, and a multitude of Chicago bungalows. Lush lawns, back yards and attractive shrubs are in abundance—and it's no surprise to see rabbits racing through the properties.

But not all Jefferson Park real estate is detached single-family places. Older mid-rise and courtyard condos are also common, and new construction three-flats, modern condominiums and contemporary townhomes have made their mark in this northwest side Chicago neighborhood as well.
