Get to know Union Ridge

Union Ridge is bisected by the main strip of business along Higgins Road where locals go to dine out, get take out, or spend a night out on the town. Of course, we're not talking wild and crazy clubs or five-star French restaurants here, but for a low-key watering hole or nice, sit-down meal, Union Ridge is top-rated. Staying in for an evening is just as sweet around here. Who doesn't love relaxing in a warm house, surrounded by a neatly trimmed, green grass lot on a long, sidewalk-lined block?

Union Ridge Real Estate

Union Ridge adheres to a standard Chicago neighborhood grid layout. The streets are shaded by mature trees, and edged by moderate lawn space. Sidewalks provide plenty of room for walking around and the roads are wide enough to park cars that don’t fit in the alley-accessed garages. The vast majority of housing in Union Ridge is comprised of single-family detached homes that sit on modest lots. You’ll find everything from two-story vintage-style new constructions to long-established raised ranches and bungalows. A number of reasonably sized townhomes also line the often one-way streets of Union Ridge and a few older brick condominiums also dot the area.

The neighborhood’s only exception to the grid pattern is Union Ridge Cemetery, an older community cemetery utilized by people from the area. It may not feature monuments for famous politicians or criminals, but it has a rich history within Union Ridge. Aside from the cemetery, only the businesses of Higgins Road break up the tight rows of housing.

As far as pricing goes, a three-bedroom detached home can cost anywhere from around $300,000 to around $550,000. Adding another bedroom or two raises the price slightly, as the average for four or five bedrooms (within a house, as opposed to some 'nothing but bedrooms' structure) is around $423,000, but several homes top out at over $800,000. Although there are few on the market in this area of Chicago, pricing for a one- or two-bedroom attached unit is around $180,000.
