Evanston Skokie 60203 Skevanston Real Estate

There is a unique area in the Evanston IL and Skokie Real Estate section that uses zip code 60203. People call this area Skevanston. It is really sort of a Skokie IL area but has the benefit of the Evanston schools district but the Property taxes are closer to the rate of the Skokie area. This area has some very nice property and offers great value. 60203 map

In 60203 there are presently 12 single family homes available ranging from $299,000 which is a 3 bedroom 2 bath Split Level home to $779,000 which is a 5 bedroom 4 and a half bath English Tudor built in 1942. There are currently 7 condominiums available ranging from a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo priced at $159,000 and at the higher end a 2 bedroom 2 and a half bathroom townhouse listed for $300,000.

In the last 12 months 56 single family homes in Skevenston have closed and 89 Condos. There are currently 8 single family homes under contract waiting to close and 1 condo.  The Chicago Tribune says that “A long-forgotten snafu created `Skevanston,’ an area of Skokie with Evanston addresses and schools but Skokie police and plowing”. “Right now there is not a clear answer,” said Mark Varner, an analyst with the city’s Geographic Information Systems office. “We’re hoping to get one [soon].”

Meanwhile, their quest to figure out what happened and when has pointed to an area that holds its own mystery: a half-square-mile cartographic oddity that is part of Skokie but where, for reasons unknown, all the houses have Evanston addresses.

It seems likely, officials said, that years ago someone added that area when totaling up Evanston’s size, and the mistake has been carried over ever since.

The only thing Evanston leaders are certain of is their land area is not 8.5 square miles, the number used as far back as anyone can recall. The truth lies between 7.8 and 8.

“It’s very complicated, which is why we haven’t come up with an actual answer for it,” Mark Varner said.

Whatever the mystery behind this is, we get many people interested to take advantage of the great values in this community. The quote I gave came from 2004 and in the last ten years has become gotten and is sort of an area that people who are familiar with Real Estate value love.

Horrible Fire Destroys Evanston Pine Yard

The Pine Yard and 3 other business in Evanston IL were destroyed late Saturday night by a horrible fine that started in the Pine Yard restaurant. the building was an Evanston landmark and also burned to the ground was Taco Diablo, Technicolor a nail salon and a bike store was heavily damages by smoke and water.

Here is a link to the Evanston Now online paper and their coverage. It is very sad because this was a beautiful old building and a horrible loss to these small Evanston businesses I had dinner with my family at the Pine Yard recently and have been going there for many years. How ironic that it happen on the 150 year anniversary of our town?

A very sad scene and our hearts go out to the people who lost jobs, the owners of the establishments and a fire fighter who hurt his ankle and was taken to Evanston Hospital.

Here is the local news coverage of the fire, this also was right across the street from our main post office which is a historic landmark building.

RIP the Pine Yard and the other places that were lost. Let us hope they rebuild and are even better for 2014.
