West Pullman Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know West Pullman

On the far south side of Chicago, this older neighborhood, once home to scores of area factory workers, now houses scores of families that enjoy its rich history and affordable real estate. For an area that got its start as a residence for industrial labor (and a place with its fair share of factories), West Pullman has an unexpectedly high incidence of parkland, playlots and other outdoor recreation sites. The neighborhood's residential blocks range from verdant, tree-lined yards that require the care of a good push mower and gardener to more urban areas with tightly-packed dwellings stretching as far as the eye can see. Among the different housing styles found along the West Pullman streets there is one property that gets quite a bit more attention than any other home. It is a beautiful example of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright's signature design, incorporating geometric forms, the surrounding landscape, in addition and elements of Japanese patterns.

West Pullman Real Estate

Due to its large size and the difference in economic status among early residents, West Pullman is fairly diverse in terms of its housing. The residential streets range from verdant, tree-lined yards that require the care of a good push mower to more urban areas with tightly packed houses stretching into the distance as far as the eye can see. A handful of these homes have garages, but most residents have to park on the street. While it may not be ideal for that vintage Camaro your neighbor is restoring, it's perfectly suitable for the rest of us.

The most common type of West Pullman real estate is the Cape Cod design. The newer section of the neighborhood ('newer' being a relative term, as many of the homes were constructed in the 1950s) features scores of Cape Cods, as well as several bungalows, split-levels, and a handful of ranches. The older bits of West Pullman encompass homes that date back to the beginning of the 20th century. Most of these are inexpensive frame homes that require a bit of refurbishing. Which is great for all you DIY-ers out there.
