For those looking for a great area to live, there is no better place than Vernon Hills. One of the most affluent suburbs in the state, Vernon Hills is north of Chicago and has just over 25,000 residents. A major retail hub for the surrounding area, Vernon Hills offers the perfect mix of beautiful homes, great schools and local attractions.
With a rich history including land that had previously been used as a U.S. Army missile base and a U.S. Navy training center, Vernon Hills exemplifies American values. Having some of the area's most affluent and stunning homes, it's a white-collar area where the majority of people own their homes. While the median sale price of a Vernon Hills home is near $250,000 there are plenty of properties available for $1 million or more. Most homes are less than 20 years old and are built in the New Traditional style of architecture, lending themselves to being highly sought-after properties.
Convenience is one option that makes Vernon Hills so attractive. Half the population commutes less than 25 minutes to their jobs, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of big-city living without the hassles. Education is very important in this area, with such schools as Adlai E. Stevenson High School and Vernon Hills High School boasting high graduation rates, multiple teaching awards and reputations for excellent academic and extracurricular activities.
The area is also home to a number of attractions such as the Sullivan Center and Cuneo Museum. The Sullivan Center, part of the Vernon Hills Park District, offers a great place for families and groups to spend quality time together while enjoying the great outdoors. The Cuneo Museum, consisting of a historic home and gardens along with an unprecedented art collection, offers tours year-round and is known for its "Winter Wonderland Light Show" during the Christmas holidays. The home has even been used in films featuring Chicago as a backdrop, such as My Best Friend's Wedding.
So if beautiful scenery, rich history and modern convenience are what you desire, Vernon Hills should be your next place to call home.
