To describe a Chicago neighborhood as “suburban” is a familiar tune, but few neighborhoods can claim to be mistaken for a suburb as often as Edgebrook. Located on the far northwest reaches of the city, Edgebook is encompassed by the lush vegetation of the golf courses, parks and forest preserves that surround it. Edgebrook is part of the Forest Glen Community Area, which also includes the neighborhoods of Sauganash and Wildwood. Fewer than 17,000 people live in all of Forest Glen, making it one of the more sparsely populated communities in Chicago. Because of its suburban character and low population, Edgebrook crime statistics are very low, making it one of the safest Chicago neighborhoods. However, because of the nearby forest preserve, drivers are advised to watch for deer at night.
Almost 90 percent of the homes in the Forest Glen Community Area – which includes Edgebrook – are owner-occupied, but rental properties do exist. Houses are typically priced from about $400,000 to more than $1 million. Architectural styles vary widely in Edgebrook, ranging from gorgeous Tudor- and Queen Anne-style homes to newer bungalows and ranch houses. Most of Edgebrook has been built out, making the construction of new homes somewhat rare, but they can be found. Old Edgebrook, an enclave of about 50 houses located within Edgebrook, was designated a Chicago Landmark district in 1988.
