Welcome to Lincolnshire
Tree-lined streets, luxurious homes, and friendly residents create an idyllic community
Set outside the hustle and bustle of Chicagoland, Lincolnshire provides residents with a quiet, laid-back lifestyle. The town is characterized by its picturesque tree-lined streets, luxurious homes, and a wide variety of fine dining choices and retailers. Situated approximately 34 miles from downtown Chicago, residents can enjoy easy access to the big city amenities and activities.
The history of Lincolnshire
can be traced back to 1955 when it first began as a subdivision. The village was officially incorporated in 1957 and quickly attracted the attention of affluent homeowners, who were drawn to the wooded landscapes, waterfront living, and abundance of open space. Today, the town consists of four neighborhoods and offers everything from condos to single-family homes.
What to Love
- Close proximity and access to public transportation
- A diverse mix of homes and housing styles and types
- Easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment venues
Lincolnshire’s lakefront oasis is appealing to young professionals working in Chicago, established families seeking a suburban lifestyle, and retirees in search of a quiet place to reside. With a population of nearly 8,000 residents, Lincolnshire exudes small-town charm and character. It’s become a highly sought-after place to reside, thanks to the abundance of nature, housing styles, and things to do.
