Within Norwood Park, one of Chicago’s 77 designated areas on the northwest side, is a substantial yet calm and cozy suburb known as Union Ridge. The tight rows of single-family residences are only broken up by Union Ridge Cemetery and retail stores along Higgins Road. Union Ridge borders are W Foster Ave to the south, Rt 43 aka Harlem Ave to the west, W Bryn Mawr Ave to the north, and N Nagle Ave to the east.
Here is an area where family living outweights the usual Chicago infusion of culture and off-beat dining. The tree-lined streets indeed offer many unique dining spots, but the number one neighborhood activity is the low-key option of simply being at home. In large majority, Union Park is divided into modest lots occupied by single-family detached houses. Houses for sale in tranquil Union Park are sought-after like sacred treasure. Mature trees provide abundant shade, roads are sufficiently wide for cars to park, when they don’t fit into the garages accessible by alleyways.
Homes are an eclectic array of raised ranches, two-story new constructions in vintage styles, and Chicago bungalows. The architectural term “bungalow” describes a popular residential style of the early 1900s. Typically, bungalows are one and one-half stories and have efficient floor plans and low-pitched roofs. Ornate stonework graces sturdy brick construction, and the style also includes a semi-enclosed front veranda and leaded-glass windows. These classic homes are uniquely identified as Chicago real estate. Throughout the City of Chicago, there are more than 80,000 bungalows that were mostly built from 1910 through 1940. These Union Park houses for sale are always popular with homebuyers.
Mobility is easy in Union Ridge, between the nearby Blue Line station, numerous bus stops, convenient access to major thoroughfares, and ample space for bicycling.
