Charming downtown with boutiques and eateries. Tree-lined streets. Walkability. Beautiful Parks. Superb schools including nationally acclaimed New Trier High school.
Homes include beachfront mansions, architecturally significant mid-century modern homes, new construction and a mix of townhomes and condominiums in a range of prices.
Most neighborhoods are just a short walk away to the village’s downtown with upscale boutiques and eateries. Located three blocks from downtown, the beach is just a hop, skip and jump away.
