Oak Park Real Estate

Location! One key reason why real estate in Oak Park is a desirable place to buy a house is great accessibility.  Oak Park boarders the world-class city of Chicago and is just 9 miles from the loop. It boasts three train lines including a Blue and Green line L stops as well as access to the Metra. In 20-30 minutes one can reach O'Hare or Midway International Airports.  The 290 Eisenhower expressway cuts through the town as well.  And there is access to both city bus lines and the suburban PACE bus systems. 

Strolling down a typical street in Oak Park, one will encounter a wide variety of vintage home styles. The breadth of styles is stunning and makes Oak Park a beautiful place to walk around. One will see Tudors, Four Squares, Victorians, Queen Annes, Colonials, Brick Bungalows, Painted Ladies, and Cape Cods, but Oak Park is probably best known for having the best examples of Prairie Homes designed by the world famous architect Frank Llyod Wright and his contemporaries.
