Homes for Sale

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

Lincoln Square has become an increasingly popular place to live in the last few years, and it's easy to see why. Not only are there a variety of housing options (vintage apartments, renovated condos) but many are very spacious. The area is home to local college students, young professionals, and families, so the prices fit a wide range of budgets. The closer you are to Andersonville in the northeast, though, the more you'll start to pay for rent or a home.

Where to Eat

Lincoln Square is bursting with interesting options for dining out. Though its biggest draw is its collection of Europubs and cafes, it has tons of other dining options, from high-end comfort food to mid-range, authentic wood-fired pizzerias, to the old school sweet shops preserved since the beginning of the 20th century.

What You'll See

An assortment of architectural treasures. Established in the late 1800's as a farming village, Lincoln Square retains a lot of that simple charm in its buildings, showcasing styles from the Victorian era on. Lincoln Square was home to famed Chicago School architect Louis Sullivan, and his influence is felt throughout the beautiful collection of buildings

Friday Night Fun

Skip over to one of the gourmet candy or cupcake shops to satisfy your sweet tooth while you peruse a locally-owned bookstore or art shop. Then treat yourself further and catch some live theater, comedy, or a folk music concert.

The Perfect Sunday

Stroll into a turn-of-the-century, European-style pharmacy to grab some sunscreen for your day outdoors at one of the many annual street festivals that call Lincoln Square home. Save some room for an authentic dinner (and some drinks) at an Old World brewhouse.
