Roscoe Village

Charming, eclectic, unique, and just plain cool, Roscoe Village pulled out all the stops when it comes to appeal. Just west of Lake View, this sweet village within the city is a sought-after location for young families who don’t want the daily hustle of city life, but who do enjoy the quality food, art, and entertainment found downtown. 

Developed prior to the great depression, the area was originally home to working-class German immigrants who were employed in various local factories. Now, the neighborhood provides industrial-style lofts in those old factories, as well as plenty of brown- and graystones, two-flats, single-family homes, bungalows, and condos. Expect to pay $1-$2 million for a single family home, or the average condo price of $550K.

Roscoe Village is more than brilliant historic homes, however; it’s well known for its exceptional, locally-owned boutiques, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. And, if you’re just looking for a leisurely village stroll full of quality people-watching and heightened window-shopping, you’ve found one of the best spots near the city to do it. The terrific schools and easy access to public transportation are the cherries on top. As a bonus, when you live here, you get to walk to the very popular Retro on Roscoe festival held every summer: Live music? Check. Local food? Check. Heat-eliminating beverages for all ages? Check. Classic cars galore? Check. 

Pro-tip: Look out for strollers, or you may get run over by one!
