Although just 30 miles from downtown Chicago, Bannockburn is a tranquil community that feels a world away.
Originally built as country estates, Bannockburn’s homes are set on expansive lots – many of which are set back from main roads and surrounded by mature trees. The village continuously works to preserve the uniquely rural feeling that the locals love.
Homeowners come for the privacy and stay for the peacefulness and great outdoors. Maybe that’s why the community has been home to a few notable residents who might want a break from the spotlight, including former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka and former Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson.
Bannockburn residents enjoy the numerous biking and hiking trails nearby along with plentiful shopping and dining options in neighboring communities such as Deerfield.
The community is situated just east of the Tri-State Tollway, offering convenient transportation to downtown Chicago. Riding the Metra is also an option for commuters who can access train stations in nearby Lake Forest and Deerfield.
