Alta Vista Terrace Chicago Real Estate
Alta Vista Terrace is a historic Chicago neighborhood that was originally built in 1904 to imitate the rowhouse style often seen in London, England. The inspiration to build such homes came when Chicago real estate developer Samuel Gross traveled to Europe in the early 1900s to study the housing style in various regions of England. The Alta Vista District consists of one road, Alta Vista Terrace, and contains 40 single-family row homes, each with lots measuring about 24 feet wide and 40 feet deep.

Learn More About Alta Vista Terrace Chicago Real Estate
Each of the rowhomes built along Alta Vista Terrace boasts its unique style. Of course, some of these rowhomes have similar architectural styles or exterior features, but every home certainly shows off its exceptional characteristics. One example of the similar, yet distinctive features are the bay windows of each property. Every home features the trademark bay windows, but each bay tends to be just a little different. Whether it’s rounded or squared, two stories or one, the uniqueness of each bay is demonstrated in one way or another. As you can imagine, it’s not often that one of the 40 rowhomes in Alta Vista Terrace comes onto the real estate market, but when they do, buyers can expect to see a relatively hefty price tag. The average sales price for a row home along the Alta Vista Terrace strip is generally in the neighborhood of $850,000.
