Chicago Neighborhood Spotlight: Old Town

Posted by Helaine Cohen on Saturday, August 16th, 2014 at 11:25am.

Old Town is one of our favorite neighborhoods in downtown Chicago, and given its reputation among news and real estate outlets across the country, we’re certainly not alone. Realtor.com routinely votes Old Town as one of the most popular neighborhoods in the country, while just last year, that same website released data showing Old Town’s zip code, 60610, was the most searched of any zip code in the U.S.

So just what exactly makes Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood so special? Many feel its walkability is among top reasons why most Chicagoans want to call this part of Chicago home, as the Wells Street Corridor is loaded with quaint boutique shops, high-quality restaurants, and number of sidewalk cafés that make for quite the atmosphere during the warm summer months of the year. Others love Old Town for the historic Victorian-style architecture that’s on display all throughout the area, which truly makes its namesake fitting and appropriate.

When it comes to Old Town real estate for sale, lofts, condos, luxury rentals, and even a wide variety of single-family homes fill the neighborhood’s housing landscape.  High-rises are also fairly common on the neighborhood’s eastside, given the close proximity to the Gold Coast, as well as the city’s beautiful lakefront.

If you’re considering a move and are interested in Old Town real estate for sale, we recommend starting your search somewhere near Wells Street and working your way out from there. Although plenty of locations in Old Town are attractive and desirable, there's nothing quite like being situated right in the center of all of the action. To begin your Old Town home search, start browsing some of the featured MLS listings below, and for more information or to schedule a showing for an active listing on the market, contact Helaine Cohen with Chicago Condo Finder today at (312) 953-0961.
