Homes for Sale

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

Where to Live

Homeowners on the northern end of West Lawn must get used to some noise from Midway Airport, but they also enjoy easier access to the Orange Line train that travels to the Loop. With several small parks in the neighborhood, most homes will offer a nearby green space to relax or exercise. Parking is generally easy to find and prices for single-family homes and condominiums are fairly low for Chicago.

Where to Eat

West Lawn offers a variety of comfort cuisine to satisfy any appetite at a reasonable price. Taco joints abound throughout the neighborhood, great for lunch, dinner, or a late-night snack. Explore the main thoroughfares to find classic diners, BBQ joints, pizza parlors, and ice cream shops.

What You'll See

Rows of cozy single-family homes make up the residential areas, with some streets offering more tree cover than others. Locally owned restaurants, shops, and offices are plentiful along Pulaski Road, while chain restaurants and hotels along Cicero Avenue cater to travelers coming from the airport.

Friday Night Fun

Chow down at one of West Lawn's many taco and burrito spots, then drive over to the Ford City Shopping Center, a mall built inside of a former auto factory. When you’re finished shopping, head over to one of West Lawn’s humble taverns and throw a few songs on the jukebox to soundtrack a game of pool or darts.

The Perfect Sunday

Take a walk through West Lawn Park or drive over to Marquette Park for a round of golf. If you’re more in the mood for a history lesson, spend the day exploring the exhibits at the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture. This museum is the largest repository of Lithuanian cultural artifacts outside of Lithuania and tells the story of Lithuanian Americans, many of whom reside in West Lawn.
