More about Ravenswood

Ravenswood is a group of neighborhoods that lies Northwest from Lakeview between the Chicago River and Ravenswood Avenue. It has its own rapid transit system and is often described as a beautiful area with tree-lined streets and parks. Ravenswood communities include Ravenswood Gardens, Budlong Woods, Bowmanville, Ravenswood manor and some parts of Lincoln Square.

Ravenswood is perhaps one of the city’s first planned neighborhoods. Its homes consist of Prairie school homes, Victorian and brick row houses and wide lots. It is currently a great place for affordable single family homes, condos and multi-family units. One of Ravenswood real estate areas, Ravenswood Gardens is composed of residential blocks of brick flats and single family homes many of which are now gentrified.    

The vast difference in price might seem surprising since the homes are only a bedroom short. However it also depends on the neighborhood or area that the home is located.

The transportation and shopping hub is located near Lincoln Square so they wouldn’t be too far from where you live if you plan on buying a home there. For example, the CTAs Brown Line has stops at Damen, Montrose and Western so you won’t have trouble commuting either. If you prefer trendy and traditional restaurants than the streets of Lincoln Square have those too. The Old Town School of Folk music is a favorite for musical aspirants.

Ravenswood also has a public park, Welles Park that is located right in the middle of Sunnyside, Western, Lincoln and Montrose. If your family is into sports the park is a great place to take them since it has several playing fields for tennis, basketball and a playground.
