Located in Wilmette (and NOT in Kenilworth, despite its name), Kenilworth Gardens extends from Ridge Road at the east border, to Hunter at the west; and from Elmwood at the south end, to Beechwood at the north. The classic homes and lush landscaping have made Kenilworth Gardens a sought-after community for young families for many years.
The area was developed over 60 years ago, and originally featured mostly 3-bedroom homes. Since then, many of the homes have been tastefully expanded; and offer all the space and convenience todayâ€™s families are looking for. Many types of architecture can be found in Kenilworth Gardens, with no shortage of classic colonials!
Certainly the schools are a big part of the neighborhoodâ€™s appeal, as well; and include Harper Elementary School, the Ronald Knox Montessori School and New Trier High School. And easy access to the Kenilworth Metra stop is a big plus for commuters. An array of shops and restaurants are also within easy reach, including the nearby Old Orchard shopping center, and Plaza del Lago, among others.
