2571 Waukegan Rd. Bannockburn, Il 60015
Located approximately 30 miles from Chicago, Bannockburn is a community known for its plentiful open spaces and unique character. The rural community was first settled in 1835 when Irish immigrants arrived in the area. Scottish architect and builder William Aitken then brought residential development to the community after planning an inland of country estates across more than 100 acres of land. Bannockburn was ultimately incorporated as a village in 1929, at which time there were 30 families living in the town.
Both long-time residents and newcomers to Bannockburn enjoy the privacy afforded by homes on Bannockburn’s large lots and carefully planned landscape buffers. You can feel as if you’re living in the country while being minutes away from the neighboring communities of Lincolnshire, Highland Park, Lake Forest, and Deerfield, as well as 45 minutes away from Chicago via car or commuter Metra train.
The Village of Bannockburn offers all the conveniences and amenities of fine suburban living — excellent schools, including Bannockburn Elementary School District 106, a one-facility district of approximately 200 students from Bannockburn and neighboring communities. The town also boasts great shopping, local businesses and a friendly community.
