The community of Kildeer has always treasured its tranquil, rural setting. So much so that when a developer moved in with plans to buy up and rezone land to build a “billion dollar city,” they stood their ground. Through political battles, legal wrangling and a shotgun showdown, the community persevered, incorporating as a Village in 1958.
Today the Village of 4,000 continues to maintain its rural tranquility, requiring developers to meet strict zoning codes, including building only one house per acre.
Residents enjoy spacious single-family homes, mostly two-story custom construction, nestled among the trees, ponds and natural landscape.
Although the Village located 29 miles northwest of the Loop is known for its quiet lifestyle, there are plenty of amenities here. Residents enjoy local eateries and shopping centers with upscale retailers at Deer Park and the Shops of Kildeer.
Residents enjoy local country clubs and neighborhood pools, sports and tennis courts. A new bike path connects the Village to forest preserves.
The community is ranked as one of the top suburbs based on its livability ratings including good schools, amenities, services, transportation and crime.
Three highly accredited public school districts serve Kildeer students including Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95, Kildeer Countryside Community Consolidated School District 96 and Consolidated High School District 125.
Commuters can catch the Metra train at the nearby Palatine station. Highway 53 also provides easy accessibility to I-90.
