Southgate on the Glen…huge single family homes and cozy row homes and villas

Southgate is a very high end residential community in The Glen, an upscale residential and retail development in Glenview, Illinois.

The Southgate neighborhood lies comfortably on 104 beautifully landscaped acres, and is home to 299 attached and detached homes of very quality. The property borders The Glen Club’s 18 hole championship golf course. Southgate has a private playground, multiple pocket parks, and a pedestrian path to Westbrook Elementary School. 642 adults and 413 children live in Southgate for a total of 1,055 total residents, making it the largest of the various Glen communities.

There are four housing types in Southgate. Here is a brief overview of each:

There are 55 custom, detached “estate” homes which border The Glen Club golf course. These properties are zoned R-3 (three homes per acre) so they offer very large yards. The homes are large, too, many over 5,000 square feet; and they sell at price points between about $1.6 and $2.7 million, though some have sold for more.

182 detached, single family homes – which the developer referred to as “semi-custom” – were extensively adapted and modified so that no two homes are identical. Zoning is R-4, four homes per acre. Most of these homes range between 3,000 and 4,500 square feet, and they typically sell between $1.3 and $1.6 million.

38 lovely row homes offer 1,585 to 1,919 square feet and two to three bedrooms. They typically sell in the $500s.

24 cozy villas are sized between 1,625 to 2,055 square feet, and they offer two or three bedrooms. Most of these homes sell in the $400s to low $500s.
