There are 2 neighborhood newspapers that are delivered every Saturday morning. I know more than half of my neighbors by name. We have block parties and a 4th of July Parade. Traditions I have grown accustomed to.
Being a Realtor, I see lots of neighborhoods in the city and suburbs. Sauganash is the best of both worlds. Social opportunities for parents and kids.
Sometimes homes sell around here before they hit the MLS. You'll want a local Realtor, like me to help you have a chance to shop all the opportunities.
There are excellent Catholic and public schools within a few blocks as well as some Jewish schools a little further away.
The neighborhood has excellent proximity to the Edens Expressway and is about a mile or so from the Metra stop on Devon and Lehigh. On Friday and/or Saturday I am able to take advantage of the number 84 Peterson bus to the Red Line or transfer buses and go to the Brown Line so I can avoid drinking and driving.
I truly feel lucky to live in this area because I grew up on the south side of the city and always hoped to live in a nice Chicago neighborhood. It is quiet and peaceful. Everything I desire and need.
But once a month, when the full moon hangs low in the sky, a ... change ... comes over the residents, and they venture out into the dark to feed....
If you like city living, shopping, transportation, expressway, etc.. with a suburban feel, surrounded by primarily single family homes, then this is a fabulous neighborhood.
I have clients looking in the area now and I have a couple of friends that live there whom I enjoy visiting. It always feels like I'm somewhere else when I'm there, not like I'm in the city. I personally love it!
Need help searching the area? There are a couple of short sales you may be interested in?
