Lake Forest

Lake Forest is a place that welcomes people home to the passion and purpose of great living!

Lake Forest IL is a beautiful suburb in the North Shore region of Illinois, is located 30 miles outside of Chicago, and has a population of approximately 20,000.  Lake Forest was one of the first affluent Chicago suburbs and it has been the home of countless historic figures and wealthy individuals.  The city is known for its stunning and historic architecture that dates back to the 1800s, along with one of Illinois' nicest beaches.  Many of the area's stunning homes are secluded under lush green foliage on large estates.  Properties range from multi-million-dollar mansions to maintenance-free new construction condominiums and single-family homes with a convenient in-town location.  Lake Forest is broken up into four communities: East Lake Forest, South Lake Forest, West Lake Forest, and North Lake Forest. All of them have their advantages.  East Lake Forest is considered to be one of the most desirable Lake Forest neighborhoods because it’s proximity to restaurants and the downtown area.  South Lake Forest has homes that are usually in the $1,000,000+ range, and are the homes the city is known for.  At the heart of Lake Forest is Market Square, a historically significant landmark and quaint shopping and dining.  Lake Forest, famous for green spaces, offers more than 800 acres of free and open space to explore the surrounding beauty of nature or take on the 29 miles of trails to hike, run, and bike.  The Metra runs through downtown Lake Forest and West Lake Forest, providing the community with convenient access to Chicago.  Lake Forest is a place that welcomes people home to the passion and the purpose of great living!
