Clarendon Hills

Located 18 miles southwest of Chicago, Clarendon Hills consistently ranks as one of the best places to live and raise a family in both the state and nation. Well-established and affluent, this suburb is home to 8,500 people and more than 100 small businesses. Eight parks including walking and biking trails and the new Richmond Education Gardens and Apiary make it a great place to get outside. Dancin’ in the Street, a summer concert series, and June’s Daisy Days bring the community together. The vibrant downtown and highly rated schools add to the appeal. A Clarendon Hills Metra station and convenient access to I-88, I-294, I-55, and I-355 make it easy to get all-around Chicagoland.

Originally planned in the 1870s and later incorporated in 1924, Clarendon Hills really began to take shape when the railroad arrived, bringing commerce and tourism to this area. There was a boom in the 1950s as well when The Lions Club built the village’s first swimming pool on land donated by one of Clarendon Hills’ wealthy settlers. By the 1970s, the population of Clarendon Hills had reached 8,000. Today, Clarendon Hills is characterized by many unique village events. Community beautification programs also keep this suburb clean and connected.
 
With its gently rolling hills and open fields, the landscape of Clarendon Hills is undoubtedly beautiful. And a number of seasonal events keep this community connected: Daisy Days celebrates the village’s humble beginnings as a daisy field every June; Dancin’ in the Streets is an eight-week concert series hosted during the summer months. There’s also an annual Oktoberfest, Christmas Walk, and Holiday Tree Lighting—all events that contribute to the culture and economy of Clarendon Hills.
 
There’s a great school system here: Newsweek Magazine ranked Hinsdale Central High School as one of the top 200 schools in the nation, and Notre Dame, a private PK-8 Catholic school, is also located in the village. The neighborhoods are affluent, and town officials are continually investing time and money into Clarendon Hills’ commercial districts.
 
Clarendon Hills was a big contributor to Chicago’s “tear-down-phenomenon,” which saw many of the area’s smaller homes replaced with newer, larger ones. Therefore, buyers here will come across a wealth of new construction, large single-family residences that are only about 20 years old. Some older, modest homes still exist, though, offering good value in this community.
