Just 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago, the Village of Niles offers quiet residential neighborhoods shaded by towering trees.
Despite being outside the city, Niles still has a cosmopolitan vibe with its own half-size replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and active Sister Cities program, which promotes student and cultural exchanges. The community has a strong commitment to sustainability, converting vacant land into the Farm on Franks, a community garden and educational experience.
Niles homebuyers will find a variety of homes in several styles and price ranges, from condominiums to well-maintained bungalows and new construction single-family homes.
Students are served by several school districts including Niles Township High School District 219, which has an acclaimed arts and sciences program that is considered one of the best in the country.
Niles residents have several transportation options including two nearby Metra rail lines providing direct service to downtown Chicago and a free bus for travel within the village. Commuters can also take a public bus to catch the CTA’s Blue and Yellow Lines.
