Chicago Mid Century Modern HomesMid century modern architecture has always been a popular style but it’s become especially trendy over the last couple years, especially among suburban home buyers in Chicago. As you probably already know, Chicago’s North Shore is where you’ll find an impressive collection of classic mid century modern homes. From Evanston and Wilmette all the way up to Glencoe and Highland Park, there’s really no shortage of desirable mid century modern homes in the area that are ideal for any true mid century modern enthusiast. 

Not surprisingly, though, the North Shore isn’t the only area you’ll find authentic mid century modern homes in Chicago’s suburbs. Oak Park and River Forest are two communities that come to mind in the West Suburbs, and the list goes on from there. But in order to help get your mid century modern search started off in the right direction, here’s a closer look at Chicago’s best suburbs for searching mid century modern homes for sale….

Highland Park

Highland Park has one of the largest collections of mid century homes and it’s also one of Chicago’s top suburbs to call home. Great schools, easy access to the lakefront, and a location that happens to be right in the heart of Chicago’s North Shore, it’s easy to see why Highland Park tops our list of the best suburbs for searching mid century modern homes. 

Evanston 

If you’re looking for a mid century modern home but also hope to stay closer to Chicago, see what Evanston has to offer. Situated immediately north of the city, you’ll still be connected to downtown Chicago via the CTA Purple Line and Evanston still has a “Chicago feel” despite being its own town. 

Skokie 

Skokie makes our list because the entire town has somewhat of a mid century look and feel, and that certainly includes the housing you’ll find here. Skokie is also among the more affordable suburbs up around the North Shore, making it ideal for the first time home buyer who loves mid century modern architecture. 

Deerfield 

While Deerfield may come as a surprise option, it’s one every mid century modern home buyer should consider. Despite being a bit further out, there’s still lots to do up there, and like Skokie, it’s a bit more affordable than many other villages scattered throughout the North Shore area. 

River Forest 

If the North Shore isn’t preferred, River Forest over towards the western suburbs is charming, close to the city, and one of the more underrated communities in all of Chicagoland. It’s also close to downtown Oak Park, which has a vibrant “main street” full of shops, restaurants, and cafes; so check out what River Forest homes are available that were built around the mid century modern era now!
