Berwyn, IL Real Estate
If there’s one thing the City of Berwyn, Illinois is known for, it’s the high concentration of Chicago-style bungalows. Generally considered the largest collection in the nation, the city’s historic society even has an annual Berwyn Bungalow tour. Over a century ago most new construction was in the style of these classic single-family bungalows, creating the look of many of the real estate options on the market today.
Several of Berwyn’s elementary schools are within walking distance of one of the largest parks in the area, Proksa Park. Characterized by its sprawling baseball and softball fields, the park is a center for community activity. Complete with bike paths, tennis courts, playground equipment, picnic areas, and the Berwyn Park District center, Proksa Park has a lot to offer.
The traditional charm of Berwyn only gets better with its annual “Historic Route 66” vintage car show. The event is popular with both residents and the thousands of car enthusiasts from all over the country that come to celebrate.
With its proximity to Oak Park and Chicago, Berwyn is conveniently located, yet removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is no shortage of public transportation, with the Metra station providing routes to Aurora and downtown Chicago.
