Welcome To Winnetka Real Estate

Chartered as a Village by the Illinois Legislature in 1869, Winnetka has long been recognized as one of the most affluent and desirable communities on Chicago\'s "North Shore". Winnetka real estate is characterized by fine, well-kept homes of unusually high character set along tree-shaded streets. Among the other characteristics which contribute to its special quality are: the beauty of the area, innumerable community activities, efficient government, a municipal electric system, an outstanding park system, excellent school systems, a diversity of public transportation options, easy access to area expressways, and three convenient business districts which serve the needs of both Village and the other "North Shore" residents.

In the center of town, the Winnetka Village Hall surrounded by lush plantings
