Winnetka is beautiful inside and out – from its picturesque downtown and scenic beaches to homes designed by renowned masters of architecture. It’s all right here in the Village of Winnetka, just 16 miles north of downtown Chicago.
Gorgeous neighborhoods surround the village’s downtown business district, putting residents in close proximity to a variety of boutique shops and eateries. Three Metra stations are also located throughout the community, providing convenient commuting options to downtown Chicago. With Winnetka’s beautiful beaches, golf courses, A.C. Nielsen Tennis Center, Ice Arena, and numerous parks, you may never want to leave.
Winnetka’s housing choices range from multimillion-dollar lakefront mansions to in-town condominiums and townhomes. Victorians, Colonials, and Tudors are interspersed with contemporary and new-construction homes on graceful tree-lined streets. Neighborhoods feature homes by some of the most distinguished architects of their day including George Maher, Howard Van Doren Shaw, and David Adler.
For all of its beauty, residents will tell you it’s what’s on the inside that counts. They love Winnetka’s close-knit feeling and sense of community, with neighbors coming together for block parties, parades, and fireworks.
