Wildwood Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Wildwood

Wildwood is an attractive neighborhood of meticulously maintained single-family residences bordered by sprawling forest preserves on the northwest edge of Chicago. For wilderness excursions, Wildwood residents can explore the thicket of trees right beyond their backyard, but when the locals want to play ball, take classes, get in a game of tennis, talk a brisk walk, or socialize with their neighbors, they visit the neighborhood's beloved namesake public park. Back on the home front, Wildwood inhabitants live in some of the most desirable real estate in Chicago. The large residential blocks boast an assortment of well-kept Georgians, Colonials, English Tudors and brick ranches on oversized, perfectly landscaped lots shaded by massive oaks and maples. Because of its incredible natural beauty and minor presence of commerce, Wildwood is more reminiscent of open countryside than cosmopolitan city.

Wildwood Real Estate

West Rogers Park is where middle- to upper-class living meets old Chicago aristocracy. Historic mansions line the tree-shaded streets of both Lunt and Ridge avenues. This fashionable architecture is dispersed through the neighborhood as elegant, yet affordable single-family homes in Georgian, Ranch, Bungalow, and Victorian layouts. Stately brick buildings, lush foliage, and an appreciation of past architectural victories greet the eyes at every turn.

The residential areas of West Rogers Park are dominated by single-family homes, but also contain a limited number of large condominium complexes and many quainter two- and three-flat buildings. In recent years, the hidden glory of West Rogers Park has been discovered by Chicagoans and a resurgence of new, classically designed projects and the rehabilitation of the 50-year-old existing bungalows and other houses are under way. This current wave of construction provides residents with spacious interiors and bonus design elements such as open layouts and high ceilings, and an emphasis on natural light.
