Located roughly 15 miles from downtown Chicago, Winnetka is a picture-perfect lakeside community on the city’s North Shore. You’ll find private neighborhoods with contemporary homes, as well as stunning lakefront estates on “Mansion Row” along Sheridan Road. Considered the most affluent area in Illinois and one of the wealthiest in the U.S., Winettka boasts tree-lined streets, scenic parks, and sandy beaches. Ideal for families, the area has excellent schools — including New Trier High School, known for its academic, fine arts, and athletic excellence.
