West Beverly
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

West Beverly Overview

A small community nestled between city and suburbs — and home to many of the city's police officers and firefighters — West Beverly has long been known as one of Chicago's safest and most stable neighborhoods. The majority of West Beverly's residential streets are lined with single-family homes that vary in size, style and price point. These properties offer plenty of outdoor space to enjoy gardening or have a backyard barbecue with the family. Any multi-unit housing in West Beverly is located along the community's main thoroughfares, which outline the neighborhood borders. The dining options in this neck of the woods include both popular restaurant chains and cherished family-run eateries. And on one particular day of the year, West Beverly locals get decked out in green and summons their inner-Irish side for the classic St. Patty's Day Parade, which cruises right through the neighborhood along Western Avenue – a boisterous south side tradition that culminates in this otherwise hushed enclave of Chicago.

Throughout the lush, lawn-covered blocks of West Beverly, mature trees with long leafy branches provide shade from the summer sun and a beautiful setting to raise a family. This southwest side Chicago neighborhood offers potential homebuyers an eclectic mix of home designs and sizes, so whether it’s just you or you, the family, the mother-in-law and the dog who just had a litter of puppies, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.

Most of the multi-unit housing in West Beverly is found along the main thoroughfares that outline the neighborhood borders—namely 107th Street and Western Avenue. These residential buildings are predominantly older mid-rise condos with some newer construction townhomes. However, the majority of West Beverly’s residential streets are lined with single-family homes that range in style, size and price. Many of the houses are smaller raised ranches and brick one-stories that have plenty of yard space for residents to enjoy gardening or an outdoor barbeque. While there are a good number of modest homes that are great for young families and first-time buyers, there are a few streets in West Beverly where the lots are more spread out and the homes are noticeably bigger. These two-story dwelling feature a hodgepodge of architectural designs, but all are stately and well-maintained. You can get a two-bedroom condo in West Beverly for as low as $134,000, but most are listed in the mid $100,000 to upper $200,000 range. Three-bedroom units start at $300,000 with a few in the low $300,000s. The average sales price for a three-bedroom single-family detached home in West Beverly is approximately $273,000, however, houses this size start in the upper $100,000s. Those bigger homes we mentioned earlier go for between $500,000 and a million dollars.


West Beverly History

The area now known as West Beverly was once an unnamed, sparsely populated subdivision of the Washington Heights settlement. Even with annexation to Chicago in 1874, this new Chicago neighborhood was slow to develop and to take on an identity of its own. The community got a boost in the 1890s, however, when the Rock Island Railroad named its 91st Street station 'Beverly Hills.' The 'Beverly' part of the title paid tribute to Beverly, Massachusetts, which has no real connection to Chicago but was perhaps suggested by a homesick immigrant from that town. The secondary 'Hills' piece is an acknowledgment of the ridge (once the shoreline of glacial Lake Chicago) that runs through the vicinity. West Beverly, like much of the surrounding area, was originally settled by European Protestants. In the 1920s, an influx of Irish Catholic immigrants and African Americans from the southern states diversified the neighborhood. With a growth spurt prompted by the post-WWII baby boom, the population of the entire Beverly area nearly doubled in the years following the war. Today West Beverly is a solid, integrated middle-class neighborhood, and home to many Chicago policemen and firefighters. The community is proud of its unwavering stability and ties to Chicago’s past.
