Get to know Portage Park

Portage Park is a peaceful and spacious northwest side Chicago neighborhood with an active business district, a number of good schools and affordable property that is steadily growing in popularity and homebuyer interest. The Six Corners intersection is the area's main commercial hotspot, but the entire neighborhood is infused with a wealth of little shops and specialty stores. There is no better way to experience what Portage Park has to offer than to sample the vast roster of restaurants, bar & grills, pizzerias, bakeries and delis. And you don't want to discount the neighborhood's notable network of parkland, headed up by the spacious grounds and Olympic-size swimming pool of the community's coveted namesake Portage Park.

Portage Park Real Estate

There are loads of single-family homes in Portage Park, a multitude of quaint brick bungalows—some with finished attics—are scattered throughout the neighborhood. Attractive one- and two-story frame houses with front yards and porches also represent a good portion of Portage Park real estate. In addition to the more typical Chicago housing, an architectural diversity exists here as home designs incorporate elements of Victorian, Georgian and English Tudor style—among others.

Attached housing options include beautifully landscaped vintage courtyard condominiums with charming touches such as exterior stone ornamentation and tiled roofs. While many older structures are rehabbed to maintain their original appeal, new condos, as well as newer model single- and multi-family homes are frequently found along the residential streets, providing a modern spin on Portage Park's traditional real estate style. There are even some contemporary townhomes with all the upscale amenities of downtown residences. Only here, unlike communities closer to Chicago's city center, residents find congestion is rare as the neighborhood lies a safe distance to the north and west of heavily trafficked areas and bustling intersections.
