Consider the pretty little enclave of bungalows, tutors, cottages and two-flats in North Park community area near the Northeastern Illinois University campus when looking for homes on the North Side.
Chicago brick bungalow houses within a few blocks of the university have sold for $200,000 to $425,000 in the last 12 months. Some small raised ranches have sold from $150,000 to $200,000. The lower of the price scale will get you a fairly original brick bungalow without a finished attic space or small raised ranch house. The $400,000 range will get you a relatively large home with finished second floor and modern updates. At the moment, there are three brick bungalows available within two blocks of NEIU listed from $250,000 to $460,000.
The streets around Northeastern Illinois University are quiet and tree-lined. Many home owners have extensive landscaping around their homes enhancing the local atmosphere. The college itself offers pretty grounds to walk and many activities for the public including lectures, a top notch theater experience, music and a recreation center with public membership.
