We're not just talking pricey here – think "retire early if you win the lottery" kind of pricey. Imagine sprawling estates, breathtaking lake views, and maybe even a tennis court or two! But these zip codes aren't just about the mega-mansions – you get top-notch schools, picturesque downtowns, and a community feel that matches the astronomical real estate values.

Your Guide to the "Posh Five" of 2024

While real estate trends can change, these usual suspects likely still lead the luxury pack in 2024:

  1. Kenilworth (60043): The undisputed champion of North Shore real estate. Think classic mansions, tree-lined streets, and the type of quiet elegance that whispers of inherited fortunes. Average home price? A cool $1.6 million+.

  2. Winnetka (60093): This scenic lakeside gem offers grand homes mingled with cozy cottages. It's got beach access, a quaint village, and those enviable Lake Michigan vibes. Expect to shell out upwards of $1.5 million for a piece of this paradise.

  3. Glencoe (60022):  If lakeside luxury with a dash of village charm sounds heavenly, Glencoe is your calling card. Picture stunning estates just a stroll from the shops and cafes. The average price tag? Around $1.4 million.

  4. Hinsdale (60521):  Heading west, Hinsdale's allure lies in its sprawling estates, top-rated schools, and a strong sense of community. Average home prices hover around $1.2 million.

  5. Lake Forest (60045): This historic beauty exudes old-world charm. Grand estates stand alongside a picturesque town centre. If this is your dream, be prepared to fork over upwards of $1.2 million on average.
