Bucktown

Homes in Bucktown are quite unique, varying from restored cottages and lofts to larger brick homes. Evidence of the historic Polish Bucktown, reportedly named after a male goat, known as a buck, and its pastoral beginnings are seen throughout the small community in century old structures and cobblestone paths.

Homes in Bucktown are quite unique, varying from restored cottages and lofts to larger brick homes. Evidence of the historic Polish Bucktown, reportedly named after a male goat, known as a buck, and its pastoral beginnings are seen throughout the small community in century old structures and cobblestone paths.  You’ll find evidence of Bucktown real estate’s past in the stately century-old brownstones and graystones mixed with a proliferation of new construction that has taken place over the past two decades – modern townhomes, Bucktown condo developments, and single-family homes from the modest to the pretentious.  Significant rehabs have also converted former industrial buildings into residential lofts.

Bucktown is very accessible to all parts of the city.  You’re right on the blue line train between the Loop and O’Hare airport.  Buses and taxis are omnipresent – as are most other amenities.
