New Home Communities in Lake Forest

Lake Forest is one of the suburbs located in Illinois close enough to Chicago to be referred to as part of that big city. However, the truth is that the City of Lake Forest is a great city on its own. It has its own charm and attracts certain kinds of people. Lake Forest lies on the North Shore area of Chicago land and has pretty much kept some of the old charm that was there when it was founded.  If you are looking for an Estate Lifestyle in a place with a low crime rate, great schools and wonderful amenities far from the hustle and bustle of the city then Lake Forest would be the ideal place for you.

Many notable architects and building designers have worked here to make Lake Forest what it is today. Buildings like Shaw's Market Square designed by the distinguished Howard van Doren and the designer of the futuristic House of Tomorrow, Fred Keck still stand and serve as historical places of interest in Lake Forest.

As a city, Lake Forest has been growing economically. There are top companies that have set up offices in Lake Forest like the Packaging Corporation of America, Brunswick and Trustmark Companies. 

The city has a very good public school system and an easy access to top medical care at Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital.  There are two colleges, Lake Forest College and Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Most people who live in Chicago might know Lake Forest for its history of Polo.  Lake Forest has also made its way into books and films that went on to become cult classics like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the night, Stephen King’s IT and the movie Ocean’s twelve staring George Clooney and other notable actors.

Real Estate is expensive in Lake Forest, it always was and through the rise and fall of the economy, prices held steady. There has been a steady increase in the number of gated communities or master planned communities. Amberley Woods by K. Hovnanian Homes has custom homes priced at $900K +.
