Old Town is one of Chicago’s most charming and historic neighborhoods. Situated just north of Streeterville and the Gold Coast, Old Town was once nothing more than a residential retreat from the busy downtown business district. However, today’s Old Town houses a unique variety of locally-owned boutique shops, ethnic restaurants and cafés, and some of the most sought after real estate in all of Chicago. Old Town is bordered by Armitage Avenue to the north, Division Street to the south, Clark Street to the east, and Larrabee and Orleans Street to the East.

Real estate in Old Town ranges from historic brownstone 3-flats to beautiful brick-constructed townhomes and large single-family detached residences. Many of the buildings were constructed in the Victorian-era of architecture and many Old Town properties can be quite expensive. Small condos, however, can also be found at very reasonable prices and some buildings even offer studio-sized condominiums that are typically priced in the low $100,000s. Parkside of Old Town is one of the neighborhoodâ€™s largest newer construction condo projects that offer generous-sized one and two bedroom condominiums as well as unique 3-level townhomes with attached garage space. If youâ€™re in the market for an Old Town apartment, there certainly are plenty of rental options available as well so call us today for more info.
Old Town real estate for sale in Chicago is perhaps most widely known for the Wells Street strip between North Avenue and Division.

Clark Street. Additionally, just north of North and Wells Street is the world-famous Second City Comedy Club where many famed comedians first got their start. If you’re more into the arts, the Old Town Art Fair is held annually every June which attracts thousands of visitors as nearly 250 artists put their work on display for one of the oldest art shows in the country. Old Town is also suitably located within walking distance to Lincoln Park and the Lakeshore Trail, making a walk in the park, a bike ride along Lake Michigan, or any other outdoor activity a breeze.
