Old Town Condos on Wells StreetIt’s no secret Old Town is one of Chicago’s most beloved and sought after neighborhoods. Routinely getting voted as a top neighborhood in the entire country by national publications, its clear Chicagoans aren’t the only ones who think Old Town is a special place—especially when you call it home.

Unlike some Chicago neighborhoods, Old Town’s boundaries are pretty defined and are bounded by Division Street to the south, North Avenue to the north, Clybourn Avenue to the east, and Larrabee Street to the west. But within the confines of Old Town’s borderlines is one of the more charming neighborhood “strips” you’ll find in all of Chicago.

In some ways, Wells Street in Old Town is like taking a road trip to one of Middle America’s quaint small towns—but without losing the big city liveliness. Old fashioned boutique shops, a number of restaurants and bars, and even a couple entertainment venues complete the vibrant atmosphere on Wells Street in Old Town, but along with all these fun-filled places to eat, drink and shop, there’s also quite a wide-variety of condos and residential buildings for home buyers to consider when searching to the ultimate downtown Chicago residence.

On the high-side, you may find an updated 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit loaded with appealing finishes for between $600,000 and $800,000. Buyers with more of a tighter budget, however, can also find great and affordable Wells Street condos for sale starting at around $275,000.
