Wicker Park Real Estate

When the Germans and Scandinavians fled to Wicker Park in the aftermath of the Chicago Fire, they had learned one thing: don'Â’t build with wood. Instead they created large, immaculate homes made of brick and stone. Pierce and Hoyne streets are the best places to cruise these old homesteads, though by now many of them have been divided into two- or three-flats. In fact, Hoyne used to be known as 'Beer Baron Row' because of the large number of wealthy brewery owners who built their houses there. The beer-baron residences, among others, remain today making a stroll down one of these tree-lined streets like a peek into the days of Chicago'Â’s past.

Wicker Park real estate blends the old with the new, and while many of the vintage houses remain, plenty of new condos have sprung up, much to the chagrin of Wicker Park purists. Though the new buildings may not be the ideal to all, they've provided affordable real estate to working singles, newlyweds and young families. This, combined with the vast amount of rental properties, make Wicker Park a decidedly young neighborhood (we'Â’re talking mid-twenties and up), with a smattering of west side veterans mixed in.
