With large lots, top-notch schools and proximity to numerous corporate headquarters, Northfield is a wonderful place to call home. Yet there are just 5,500 residents in this small North Shore community, lending to its enduring charm and tranquility.
Known for its distinctly residential character, Northfield is defined by sprawling ranch homes with spacious yards, European-inspired mansions on oversized lots, and condominiums in quiet locales. While the community has experienced growth through new construction, its welcoming atmosphere still remains.
Convenient access to I-94 and I-294 make for an easy drive to the city and O’Hare International Airport. Meanwhile, neighboring towns such as Winnetka and Glenview have Metra stations providing train service to downtown Chicago.
In addition to highly-regarded schools, including nationally-recognized New Trier High School, Northfield offers residents plenty to enjoy in their spare time, from excellent shops and restaurants to weekend farmers’ markets, lush forest preserves and jogging trails.
