South Edgebrook homes are well-kept and bordered by the natural grandeur of the area’s greenery. Many houses sit on oversized lots surrounded by towering trees that provide shade, and an air of permanence. You’ll find a variety of architectural styles here, including Chicago bungalows, charming Victorians, contemporary designs, and more.

In some sections of this tiny northwest side neighborhood, smaller brick ranches line the streets. Many of these one-story homes, with two or three bedrooms, are priced between $400,000 and $700,000. Attached garages and full front and back yards make these homes family favorites. Two-story houses up the price a bit—as can be expected—putting the value at anywhere between $700,000 and $950,000.

South Edgebrook History

Long before South Edgebrook became the predominantly residential setting that it is today, the land was Native American territory and home to the Potawatomi Indians. In 1828, the United States awarded the tract of land upon which South Edgebrook now sits to Potawatomi chief Billy Caldwell for successfully mediating treaties between the U.S. and the Potawatomi.

South Edgebrook eventually became part of the city of Chicago in 1889, and although a train station was built nearby, development was slow to take off. During the roaring 1920s, however, construction picked up, as those who were weary of the city’s hustle and bustle—but still wanted the benefits of living in its proximity—built homes nestled in the thick wooded landscape.

Today the South Edgebrook neighborhood, flanked by forest preserves and a golf course, is almost exclusively residential. There are still charming homes nestled in the woods, and industry has stayed away from this quiet, outlying section of Chicago. South Edgebrook is a peaceful, well-to-do Chicago neighborhood that attracts city workers, their families, and other folks who want to be closer to nature yet still within the city’s boundaries.
