Beaver Cleaver would love this Glen home, and so will you.

The Cleaver family would love this home. So would Ozzie and Harriet.

I generally don’t blog about my individual sales listings. And today’s blog isn’t really about this specific house; it’s more about a style of home found in the Cambridge subdivision in the Glen in Glenview Illinois. It’s a throwback to the 1950’s, and I love it.

I scheduled an open house at this home at 2458 W. Lake Avenue in Glenview a few days ago; and after I set everything up I took a glass of lemonade out to the front porch. (Yes, a front porch!) While enjoying the great weather and my view of Lake Glenview and Gallery Park across the street, my husband dropped by delivering some treats I like to serve at open houses. He joined me on the porch, and the stress of life in 2015 just oozed out of our bodies. It was quiet, a little warm but with a light breeze, and…we just sat there. Just like people did when Ike was President, Elvis was king, and cars had fins.

There are many housing types in Cambridge ranging from row homes, townhouses, duplexes, two-flats, large estate homes, and traditional single family homes. Several of the other Glen subdivisions have a single home type. Tower Crossing has its red brick Georgian townhomes, Southgate its huge estate homes, Glen Shore its luxury condos. But Cambridge is a wonderful mix of…well, of everything.

Anyway, if you like the idea of a front porch, tidy yard, and pretty flowers bordering your front walk, maybe you should visit Cambridge. Just give me a call or send an email. I am an award-winning Realtor and a long term resident of the Glen.
