Named the nation’s hottest housing market this year by Redfin, Chicago’s Ukrainian Village offers perks like public transportation, thriving independent business corridors, and a traditional Chicago neighborhood atmosphere at a price point far more affordable than some of the Windy City’s traditionally desirable communities. Considering the area’s relatively attainable median home sale price of $472,000, this newly-built two-bedroom duplex condo’s ask of $400,000 looks particularly attractive.
The unit’s upgraded kitchen and contemporary bathrooms are complimented by hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and one included garage parking space. The home also features a view of downtown Chicago’s skyline from its bright living room and deck—though that may soon change given the rapid rate of development along Western Avenue.
A short walk from Smith Park, the shops and restaurants of Chicago Avenue, and the Metra line, the home is close to plenty amenities at an intersection that still has room to grow and improve as adjacent areas like West Town and Wicker Park see prices continue to climb ever higher.
