Living in The Glen’s Tower Crossing neighborhood

I live in Tower Crossing in The Glen.  I do.  And I love it.  Always have.  Always will.

I moved here to Glenview in the relatively early days of The Glen development back in 2003.  In fact, my gorgeous townhome is on Lot #1 of the Tower Crossing neighborhood, one of 9 distinct developments in The Glen.  Some Glen neighborhoods have single family homes, others offer row homes, two-flats, duplexes and condos.  That’s my townhome in the photo, the end unit on the right.  Four stories, 3 bedrooms, 3.1 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a luxurious kitchen…and a whole bunch of fun.

Fun?  Yes fun!  I can easily walk to Glen Town Center’s many shops, restaurants and movie theater.  In fact, there’s a great little pizza place, Your Pie, a half block from my front door.  (I should count the number of steps someday.)  The Glen Metra station is a 10-minute stroll, and I have a big park nearly across the street.  It’s a lot like living in the city where we used to live, but…it has wonderful attributes of the suburbs, too.  Get this, I have two golf courses a block from my home.  Two!  The park has walking and biking trails.  The schools are incredible.  I mean REALLY incredible, award-winning schools.  I can get to O’Hare in 20 minutes by car, and the Loop in 45 minutes by train.  You can’t beat it.

If this is the kind of place you might like to live, give me a call at 847-401-1802 or email me at  I’m an award-winning Realtor who knows The Glen inside and out.  There are several stunning Tower Crossing homes for sale and some great homes in other Glen neighborhoods, too.
