Bordered by Grand north to Division, and Ashland west to Damen, Chicago’s East Village neighborhood has an old Chicago, Eastern European character, and has for decades. There is a strong middle-class family makeup, with strong ties to its historic churches, neighborhood shops, ethnic restaurants and bars. The area has much the same makeup of Ukrainian Village, having been formerly labeled East Ukrainian Village and has many similarities to Wicker Park. Theaters, clubs and live music are a short ride away east or west and CTA transport in convenient on Division. The Kennedy expressway is only a few blocks east.
While it retains much of its vintage housing, many old structures have given way to new construction in recent years including these four homes, currently listed with Koenig & Strey.
Ivona Kutermankiewicz represents two modern residences in the neighborhood; a 2004-built 2 bedroom 2 bath contemporary condo at 909 Honore (with 2 parking spaces) and a new single family home at 1831W Erie. This 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath is high-ceilinged and light-filled. Its Euro flavor is 2011.
Michael Shenfeld represents another modern condo at 900 N Hermitage. Part of a sunny triplex, this pet-friendly 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath unit has its own deck and shared, private, fenced yard. In the neighborhood’s southwest corner, the 1999-built 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo at 869 N Marshfield has customs details throughout, including a wood burning fireplace and private deck. Jolanta Ruege represents the listing.
