Kenilworth

Traditional elegance meets small-town charm in Kenilworth. The planned community was conscientiously designed to provide residents the utmost in beauty and privacy as well as proximity to downtown Chicago. Today it remains one of the most affluent communities in the Midwest.

Founded in 1889 by Joseph Sears, fewer than 1,000 homes are located within its .6 mile radius; and notably no large businesses. The planned community’s innovative design captured the attention of architects during the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The village was designed around its town assembly hall, the Kenilworth Club, to make the most of its natural beauty, with large lots, setbacks, abundant trees and cozy parks.

Lakefront mansions complement comfortable prairie style homes by architect and original resident George Maher. Noted architect Franklin Burnham designed the railroad station and Kenilworth Union Church, along with several original homes. Spectacular new construction is available, but it must meet strict architectural standards to maintain Kenilworth’s tradition of elegance.

Kenilworth’s top-rated school district includes Joseph Sears School and New Trier High School, which consistently rank among the top high schools in the country.

Residents enjoy dining out in nearby villages or walking to the Kenilworth Metra Station for a short ride into the city. A beautiful public beach, flowing fountains, gardens, lacrosse and baseball fields and an active historical society preserves the community’s charm.
