Hinsdale

Hinsdale is renowned for its custom homes, mature trees, amazing public schools and easy commute into Chicago.  Driving around town, you’ll be hard pressed to find two homes that look alike on the same block.

People generally refer to Hinsdale neighborhoods in two types – in-town and out-of-town.  Homes located south of Ogden Avenue and north of 55th Street are considered in-town as they offer easy walking to all that the town offers.  The homes located north of Ogden Avenue and south of 55th Street generally have larger lots and more living space than their in-town neighbors.

Founded in 1873 with the arrival of the Burlington Northern Railroad, Hinsdale is one of the Western Suburb’s most prestigious communities. Rolling lawns and quiet streets bordered by oak, maple and elm trees create the setting for the area’s stately executive homes. Downtown Hinsdale is growing up.  It retains its charming old-fashioned boutiques and antique shops, but has recently added several fine dining establishments coffee houses and is looking to secure it’s foothold with today’s modern family.  Population is approximately 17,000
