Located in Willowbrook, Illinois on 72 beautifully landscaped acres, LHV was designed 40 years ago as a Green Community. The campus includes 35 acres of open space displaying an extensive variety of mature trees and numerous flower beds. The 11 acre man-made lake winds its way throughout the landscape. In addition to the 164 two and three bedroom townhomes, homeowners can choose among 375 one, two or three bedroom condominium units. Each of the seven mid-rise condo buildings has elevators, heated underground parking as well as ample visitor parking lots.
A cornerstone for community activities, the LHV clubhouse has been recently refurbished. The three levels, occupying 10,000 square feet, feature beamed cathedral ceilings, lounges, a kitchen and bar, fireplaces, reading area, and pool table among its amenities. The lower level includes men's and women's locker rooms, conveniently located near the state-of-the-art exercise room. Residents enjoy the outdoor swimming pool from Memorial Day to Labor Day, as well as the summertime social activities which are held on the expansive clubhouse deck and patio.
If outdoor activity is what you're looking for, LHV has a private perimeter road that homeowners use for jogging, biking, roller-blading and dog walking. Or perhaps a stroll around the lake bank is more your style. Three tennis courts, shuffle board courts, a basketball court and a playground provide the necessary areas for additional recreation. Our lake is stocked for fishermen to enjoy and paddleboats are available at the clubhouse pier for those who prefer a lazy outing.
Year-round social activities are sponsored by various leagues and clubs: bowling, tennis, golf, bridge, poker, book discussion, and a radio-controlled sailboat group. Entertainment venues are varied and include bar-b-ques, dances, variety shows, pot lucks, fashion shows, and guest performers. Homeowners are encouraged to join in the fun!
If you are thinking about downsizing or are relocating to this area, come visit. The entrance to the campus is on 67th Street, two blocks west of Route 83/Kingery Highway. We hope you decide to live here!

Citizens’ Satisfaction Survey
In a recent Village resident survey, 98.8% reported they were “very satisfied” / “satisfied” with the overall quality of life in Willowbrook. Location, shopping, schools, library, low village property taxes, and low sales taxes were cited as the main reasons for their contentment. Public safety departments are well staffed and provide the village homeowners with security, helpfulness and quick response times.
Access to the Stevenson Expressway (I-55), the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290), the Ronald Reagan Tollway (I-88), the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), and the Veterans Tollway (I-355) is ideal.
