Homes for Sale

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

Where to Live

The CTA Orange Line runs runs along the northern border of the neighborhood, giving visitors a first peek or final glance of Chicago when flying in and out of the airport. The proximity to Midway makes West Elsdon very popular with pilots and flight attendants looking for an inexpensive spot close to work. But more than that, West Elsdon homes are truly unique, offering a mix of post-war bungalows, ranch-style homes, Cape Cods, and even corner store-turned-residential buildings.

Where to Eat

The culinary scene in West Elsdon is blossoming, and even expanding to different parts of the city. Demand for tacos, pierogies, and encased meats has brought satellite restaurants and stores from West Elsdon to the heart of downtown Chicago. Even unassuming local diners are home to a number of culinary treasures.

What You'll See

Beautiful artwork, new and old. Many residential buildings are works of art themselves, but beyond that, there are many hidden treasures throughout the neighborhood, including modern-day murals with explosions of color and 1960s kitsch inlaid in much of the architecture.

Friday Night Fun

Friday night is prime time for tacos. Grab some of the best in the city right around the block, but save room for the neighborhood's best donuts from a small chain diner for dessert.

The Perfect Sunday

Take a stroll around the block and peek at all of the different homes and the art that surrounds them. Warm up with a treat from the local bakery, and pick up some handmade sausage at the local butcher to cook up at home for dinner.
