The village is home to award-winning schools and stretching acres of preserved land, even high-quality shopping and a diversified real estate market. Lake Zurich has become a real gem of northwest Illinois with its overall livability, family oriented entertainment and reasonable cost of living. The area was a contender for Money magazine’s “Best Places to Live” in 2011 and in 2006 Frommer’s, a publisher of travel books and magazines, named Lake Zurich among the top 100 best places to raise a family in the U.S. In the same year U.S. News & World Report ranked it as one

of the “Top 25 Affordable Places to Live in the Country.” Growing families, young entrepreneurs, business executives, retirees and everything in between can all find the right home, right here in Lake Zurich. Virtually every size home, style and price range can be found here. Old and new homes blend seamlessly together as they are located in well-established neighborhoods, each of them having their own characteristic and charm that is as unique as the people that live in them.


There are many draws to life in Lake Zurich. One of the main attractions is the area itself, which spans over 250 beautiful acres. Some subdivisions have lake rights complete with piers, provided by the associations, for residents’ boats. Pride in these communities can be seen yearlong as some maintain their own websites and even assemble a unit to march in the annual Alpine Fest Parade.

Neighborhoods here really fit the classic description: they provide a safe, homey place to reside, raise a family and even retire.

A strong school system, strong village governments and residents who care about the community prove there is no place like Lake Zurich. Now has never been a better time to discover the benefits of life in the Lake Zurich area!

Through past economic hardship the village has continued to prosper. With low retail vacancy rates the community has remained resourceful and creative at attracting new businesses to the area, as well as keeping an eclectic mix of current

York Furrier fashion forward FUR eight decades Purveyor of exceptional furs and fine outerwear since 1931, York Furrier is thrilled to present this season’s 82nd Anniversary Collection. The York Design Team has traveled the globe, scouted the runways and worked with the York Furrier craftsmen (and women!) to create an extensive selection of fashionable furs, shearlings, cashmeres, leathers and skiwear garments, along with an array of accessories – hats, gloves, scarves, handbags, belts and boots - for complete head to toe coverage. Serving clients from the Chicagoland area and throughout the Midwest, York Furrier is conveniently located in the Deer Park Town Center and the Elmhurst City Centre. Both stores showcase innovative designer creations by Michael Kors, Zandra Rhodes, Badgley Mischka, Zac Posen, Malan Breton, André and Lisa Bisang, Dominic Bellissimo and Zuki; as well as the classically inspired York Signature Styles. Or, for a client who prefers a one-of-a-kind garment, they may opt to work with York Furrier’s talented on-premise staff to create a custom-made York Exceptional Exclusive. In-store and on the runway, the York Collection features gorgeous colors, bold patterns and shapely silhouettes. For color, the must-have is the Bisang-designed velour sheared mink walking coat with matching chinchilla trim in a beautiful teal. Other rich colors include plum, merlot, tangerine, emerald, saffron and vivid red. For playful patterns, Michael Kors created his version of camouflage with a cobalt blue, white, black and slate “camo” mink wrap. Badgley Mischka utilized animal prints and herringbone patterns for their newest handbag collection, and Zuki created intarsia colorblock patterns in sheared beaver walking coats. Figure flattering styles range from adorable boleros to floor grazing evening coats with a myriad of in-between lengths. For a woman on the go, York Furrier recommends the knee length walking coat for versatile wear. With petite to full-figure sizes and a selection of extra-long lengths, the York Collection features garments that perfectly fit both lifestyle and budget. As a full-service furrier, York Furrier also provides clients with an array of professional, on-premise services to maintain the beauty and condition of fur and fine outerwear garments.

Mainstreet Art Centre 20 E. Main St., Lake Zurich, IL 60047 847-550-0016 Frankie Johnson / Director They come from Rockford, Lake Geneva, Hoffman Estates, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook and Chicago. They are school teachers, housewives, lawyers and physicians, but all have at least one thing in common. They love art. Mainstreet Art Centre has recently moved into a larger location, just right next door. Not only is the new space larger, but there is also an added third classroom to accommodate the children on wait lists.

Another teacher has been hired and several teachers were happy to take on more classes. The office staff is extremely helpful and accommodating in every way. It’s a great team. Director Frankie Johnson began her career at a young age and continued to study at the Art Institute and the Palette & Chisel in Chicago and Harper College in Palatine. Her years of study with wellknown painters from around the world have been the best education of all. Johnson has won numerous national awards and her paintings hang throughout the country. She is represented by the Champeau Pioneer

Gallery and The Paint Box Gallery in Door County, Wisconsin. The Mainstreet Art Centre is one of only a handful of independent art schools in the area, and the Studio employs locally and nationally recognized teachers to instruct in an encouraging environment. Classes are available for adults and children, with limited class sizes, ensuring lots of personal attention from the instructor. Exemplifying the classical approach to the fine arts of drawing and painting, the fundamentals of design are strongly emphasized. Understanding values, color harmony and design are the stepping stones to becoming more creative in the

long run. The more of a foundation students have to work with, the more they are able to explore a variety of painting styles and techniques. Frankie has created a stimulating environment while focusing on creating fine art. The atmosphere is supportive, caring, professional and fun. The studio offers 35 classes weekly, including all levels of drawing, oil painting, watercolor and pastels for adults, teens and children, starting at age six. Art supplies and ready-made frames are available for sale at the studio. Eight other teachers round out the instruction team, Ardes MacFarlane, Karen Sako, Linda Lukachik, Ann Feldman, Susan Ploughe, Jan Oswald, Barb Benstein and Tracy Albert. All instructors are award-winning professionals and give the highest quality of art instruction in the area. We find learning so exciting, we love to share it. That is why we teach. Mainstreet offers several special workshops each year, with nationally prominent artists. They come to share their expertise and continue to inspire the students. Johnson carefully selects the visiting artists, ensuring there is

something for everyone. Experts in portrait painting, pastels, watercolors, plein air, still life, mixed media and figure painting are included. The opportunities are endless in which to develop as quickly as you desire with some of the best painters in the country. Mainstreet also has different outings and class projects to stimulate growth. In addition to always having available still life setups, twice a month the studio provides a live model and uninstructed studio time. There are also student/teacher art shows periodically to display what has been created. Adult classes are two and a half hours and run for eight week sessions at the cost of $165. Teens are $150 for two-hour sessions that run for eight weeks. Various times are offered for younger children.

MIDWEST MOTORS Ben Ripstein is a car enthusiast. His passion for luxury and exotic pre-driven vehicles – and the void he found in that segment of the auto market – is what prompted his decision to open Midwest Motors in 2009. This former computer executive’s business plan was in direct response to what he experienced as a consumer. He was extremely dissatisfied with luxury dealers noticing flaws in vehicles and saying, “Well, we can fix that.” Ripstein thought, “Why fix it after-the-fact, when you can do it prior to sale?” Prior to sale, Ripstein makes sure every car he sells has all the books, a key and

Cedar Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care Downsize and Upgrade: Assisted Living and Memory Care in Lake Zurich’s Newest Senior Community The decision to downsize from a large singlefamily home to an assisted living community has many an upside, if the decision includes Spectrum Retirement’s newest community, Cedar Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care. Like a fine hotel operated by a staff of caring family members, Cedar Lake’s expert team delivers personal and medical care in an environment that promotes independence, dignity, privacy and choice. Residents pay only for the services they might need while enjoying the many amenities offered by the community. Imagine casual and fine dining chefs that cater to special requests, activity directors that plan classes to benefit each resident’s body and mind, neighbors gathering for games and conversation, spa services and more – all in an environment that supports optimum health and independence. Cedar Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care boasts two stories of luxurious, yet affordable, senior living, located in southwestern Lake County approximately 37 miles from downtown Chicago. In the heart of Lake Zurich, Cedar Lake incorporates the blend of small-town charm with numerous golf courses, nature preserves and parks surrounding the Cedar Lake community. More convenient, however, are the nearby wellness center and home-health agency, and local retailers including movie theaters, boutiques, restaurants and more; all within the Lake Zurich community. We’ve also worked hard to keep with the small-town sociability, so more than 45 percent of the building is dedicated to common areas and living spaces.

The new community offers 62 Assisted Living residences, along with a Memory Care wing with 24 residences. Services are provided by Cedar Lake’s expert staff who are trained to help with simple responsibilities such as dayto-day tasks that can get in the way of enjoying retirement, to highly specialized care that targets the specific needs of those with Alzheimer's and various types and levels of dementia. Cedar Lake offers an alternative advanced memory care program called the Path to the Presentsm which offers positive and effective care at multiple levels of support, allowing individuals to maintain dignity and a level of self-confidence. “We are a resident-centered company, and strive to offer the support and care that helps our residents thrive,” said Spectrum Retirement VP of Resident Care, Carole Hull. “Our transitional memory care program allows those experiencing mild cognitive impairment to continue living in their own space or with a spouse, with a little extra support.” All this at an affordable price? Of course. Assisted living apartments ranging in size from studio suites to two-bedroom, twobath, 878-square-foot apartments, are available through a month-to-month rental program, with no buy-in fee required – and all Cedar Lake’s programs and amenities are included. Even better? Pets are always welcome at Cedar Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care. Opening in March 2014, planning that difficult decision to move has never been easier. Join the many new residents enjoying fireplace lounges, outdoor gardening areas, well-appointed apartments, trips and programs, all with the expert care you desire. We’ll even help you move in.
