The small but elegant community of Northfield, 17 miles north of the Loop, offers families luxury homes in quiet residential areas.


The main styles include Colonials, Tudors, Cape Cods, bi-levels and ranches.


Northfield children attend elementary Districts 29, 34, and 37. High school students attend New Trier High School, District 203 in Winnetka. Transportation: The Tri-State Tollway (I-294) and the Edens Expressway (I-94) are both nearby. The Loop is a 40-minute drive from Northfield. O’Hare International Airport is a 15-minute drive, while Midway Airport is an hour away. Rail commuters have a 40-minute trip to the Loop from either the Winnetka or the Glenview stations. Bus service is available.

A new community center was completed a few years ago, as was major renovation to the Northfield Village Hall.
