Not many communities have a Leaning Tower of Pisa and a working farm. The Village of Niles has both.
Niles offers a unique city, country and cosmopolitan vibe just 15 minutes from downtown Chicago. Residents enjoy living just outside the hustle and bustle of the city, while enjoying quiet neighborhoods shaded by towering trees.
Despite being outside the city, Niles still has a cultivated vibe with its own half-size replica of the Leaning Tower and active Sister Cities program, promoting student and cultural exchanges.
The community has a strong commitment to sustainability, converting vacant land into the Farm on Franks, a productive, teaching garden.
Homebuyers will find a variety of homes in several styles and price ranges, from condominiums to well-maintained bungalows as well as new custom construction for single-family living.
Students attend Niles Township High School District 219. The district has an acclaimed arts and sciences program considered one of the top programs in the country; and counts two Nobel Laureates among its alumni.
Residents have several transportation options including two Metra commuter rail lines providing express service to downtown Chicago. Commuters also can take a public bus to catch the CTA’s Blue and Yellow L lines. For travel within the village, Niles operates a free bus for residents.
