Northfield, a small community of just 5,500 residents, offers homeowners unusually large lot sizes, access to top-rated schools and proximity to numerous corporate headquarters. The town is ideally located near commuter trains, shopping, Interstates 94 and 294 and access to O’Hare International Airport.


Northfield offers convenient access to Chicago while maintaining its rural charm. Excellent schools, shopping and dining options, weekend farmers’ markets, verdant forest preserves, bicycle paths, jogging and hiking trails, and bridle paths are just a few of the reasons to call Northfield home.


Northfield real estate is known for its distinctly residential character defined by sprawling ranch homes and European-inspired mansions on oversized lots. Spacious yards and meticulously maintained gardens are a highly coveted North Shore amenity. Those seeking maintenance- free living will find condominiums in quiet locales. The village is experiencing growth through new construction, but its tranquil and welcoming atmosphere remains.


Northfield’s District 29 consists of two schools. Middlefork School serves students in kindergarten through 3rd grade, while students in 4th through 8th grade attend Sunset Ridge School. District boundaries include a large portion of Northfield, as well as a small section of Northbrook. New Trier High School, which consistently ranks among the best high schools in the U.S, is the local high school. There are also a variety of local private schools.
