North Mayfair Real Estate


Few Chicago neighborhoods boast the kind of historical swagger embodied by North Mayfair. In February 2006, it became Chicago’s fifth bungalow neighborhood to be added to the National Register of Historic Places. The area bound by Foster Avenue, Pulaski Road, Kilbourn Avenue and Lawrence Avenue includes approximately 700 homes that were constructed between the post World War I and Depression eras.

Today, many of these historic bungalows proudly dot the neighborhood streets. And homeowners in National Register Historic District also benefit from such prestige. They have the option to apply for the State of Illinois Property Tax Assessment Freeze when completing major home renovations equal to at least 25% of the market value of the property. The renovations must be approved by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.

Aside from historical bungalows, North Mayfair has a wide variety of single-family houses and apartment buildings, ranging from rehabbed two-flats to spacious courtyard condominiums. Most of the private dwellings have front lawns and cozy front porches, and while there are certainly plenty of brick one- and two-story homes in North Mayfair, there are also a good number of places with barn-style rooflines and a variety of other architectural designs to choose from.

The average sales price for a three-bedroom home in North Mayfair is about $360,000. For something with more space, and a couple more bedrooms, you can expect to pay around $425,000 on average. Not everyone needs that much room—one-bedroom North Mayfair condos are available for anywhere between $140,000 and $225,000. Two-bedroom units cost around $200,000 on average.
