Chicago Neighborhoods - Edgebrook


Edgebrook, South Edgebrook, North Edgebrook, Old Edgebrook, Wildwood Overview

If you’re looking for a close-in neighborhood that makes you feel like you’re in the country, consider Edgebrook homes for sale.  Actually comprised of several small neighborhoods, styles range from oppulent mini-mansions north of Devon, to larger, mainly post-WWII homes in Wildwood, west of Central and north of Caldwell Avenues, to more modestly-priced homes in North Edgebrook, just south of Touhy Avenue - the northern boundary of Chicago in this area.  The oldest neighborhood, fittingly called Old Edgebrook, features several houses on very large, wooded lots, many built in the late 1800's.  It recalls a time when Edgebrook was an ex-urban small town.

Dean's Team members Dean and Sue Moss live in the South Edgebrook neighborhood - just south of the Edgebrook Woods Cook County Forest Preserve, and north of Elston Avenue.  Homes here were primarily built between the 1920's and the 1940's, when this area of the City of Chicago was almost considered rural.  Renovated, larger Chicago-Style Bungalows stand side-by-side with traditional English Tudor Houses, on very secluded, quiet city streets. 

You may even see an occasional deer or raccoon wandering over from the adjacent woods.  A one-block stretch of Menard Avenue, on the eastern edge of the neighborhood, actually borders on the North Branch of the Chicago River, creating a country feel in this part of the city.

Edgebrook boasts two public golf courses and is next to Cook County Forest Preserves. The area is very wooded and pleasant.  Visitors often wonder if they are still in the city!  Edgebrook schools are among the best in Chicago.

Edgebrook has a vital downtown. A newly built library and a refurbished hardware store anchor the east and west with many other shops in between along Devon Ave. Recently the liquor prohibition ordinance was repealed. Restaurants that serve food can now also serve liquor.
