The Little Italy & University Village

The Little Italy and University Village neighborhoods often lure savvy homebuyers in search of their own slice of La Dolce Vita. (“The Sweet Life,” that is! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

Few areas of the city have such diverse real estate to offer–a growing number of single family homes, two-flats, vintage condo buildings, converted lofts and warehouses and small town house communities. This charming neighborhood has something for everyone at nearly every price point–from two bedroom flats for $325,000 to single family homes that can reach $800,000 or more.

With Little Italy real estate neighboring the rapidly growing Medical District and UIC, and easy access to the Loop, it’s quickly becoming one of Chicago’s real estate hot spots. Aside from the diverse housing selection, this historic neighborhood is filled to the brim with old-world charm–several classic Italian restaurants, markets, and vendors, that still set up shop on Sunday mornings a few blocks east of their original Maxwell street locations. (And you can’t forget about Mario’s Italian Lemonade – the best in the city!)
