Bucktown Real Estate
Though its borders are often confused with those of nearby Wicker Park’s, Chicago’s Bucktown is a uniquely vibrant, arts scene driven neighborhood. Situated between North and the Kennedy Expressway, the community is peppered with independently-owned fashion boutiques, live music venues, hipster cocktail bars, trendy coffee houses, Michelin-rated restaurants, and of course more art galleries and artist studio spaces than it would be practical to list here. For obvious reasons the area has become one of the most popular places in the Windy City to hunt for residential real estate. Prospective home buyers will find everything there from refurbished cottages and condominiums to gut rehabbed loft homes and luxurious new construction condos.
Bucktown Neighborhood Information
Chicago’s Bucktown can actually accurately be described as a cultural haven. It’s a neighborhood with a truly bohemian vide that attracts attention and residents as a result. Chicagoans from every neighborhood make their way to Milwaukee Avenue’s thrift shops, comic book stores, Wormhole Coffee Shop with its signature Delorean, and flock to Big Star for tacos on the patio and trek right across the street to the Violet Hour speakeasy for absinthe happy hour. For the less culinary inclined the Flat Iron Arts Building hosts an event the first Friday of each month where the artists who live or work in the studios inside open their doors to the public and display their work. The building's theater has several performances throughout the night for attendees and the building's bar area offers hors d'oeuvres and beverages as well.
The neighborhood is serviced by several CTA Bus Routes, the Damen and Division Blue Line L Train stops gives Bucktown residents direct access to the Chicago Loop and runs north to O'Hare International Airport. Plus the Kennedy expressway is nearby.
