Spotlights of Deer Park
Deer Park is served by two public school districts—Barrington Community School District 220 and Lake Zurich Community School District 95. With both of these school districts being classified as unit school districts, they have the unique opportunity to watch students grow from humble kindergarteners to well-accomplished high school seniors.

Exclusive Home Styles
When browsing through this area’s featured listings, you’ll find that no two homes look the same. Deer Park’s homes have several differentiating factors, including exterior features, price points, and style origins. You may find Tudor-style homes with vaulted ceilings and old-fashioned powder rooms in one part of the village, and then take a drive down the road to find a winding driveway leading to a beautifully crafted new construction home. One thing Deer Park homes do have in common is that they’re built on at least one-acre lots for rural lifestyles.
From summer concerts and fireworks to art fairs and farmers’ markets, there’s no shortage of things to put on your social calendar year-round in Deer Park.
