TREE CITY USA FOR 26 YEARS

The Village of Tower Lakes, incorporated in 1966, is located in the southwest corner of Lake County, Illinois, USA. We are in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, 39 miles from Chicago’s downtown Loop. The population is just over 1,300. Originally developed in the 1920’s as a recreational summer-home community, the Village is centered around two scenic private lakes totaling over 85 acres.

Although all the homes are now year-round, the lakes and heavily wooded rolling hills continue to attract recreation oriented and nature-loving residents.

The Village occupies approximately 1.1 square miles and presently contains just over 430 single-family homes and no commercial business buildings, schools, churches or post office. The Village is within the award-winning Barrington Community Unit School District 220. Student test scores regularly rank near the top nationally and over 90% of the graduating seniors go on to attend college. Grade school children attend the North Barrington School, less than one mile south of Tower Lakes. Private schools for grades K-8 are also available in Barrington. The Village of Tower Lakes shares the post office and zip code with Barrington (60010). Home prices average a little over $450,000 with a range of approximately $250,000 to over $1,000,000. Residents commute to jobs in nearby suburbs as well as in Chicago. Frequent commuter rail service is available from the Barrington Metra Rail Station, 10 minutes south of the village and Fox River Grove Metra Rail Station, 11 minutes southwest of the village.
