“I used to think I knew Glenview. But I did NOT know Glenview.” That was what my new’ish neighbor said to me recently. He and his wife moved into The Glen late last year. The Glen is a luxury housing development in Glenview, Illinois, a North Shore Chicago suburb. They love their beautiful home and the short walk to Glen Town Center’s many restaurants, shops and movie theater. But his point was a bigger one. Let’s call it the 40/20 convenience factor.
The Glen’s Metra train station (shown in photo) is walking distance from any home in The Glen, and – here’s my neighbor’s point – it’s only 40 minutes to downtown Chicago. Less than that during some morning and evening rush hour trains. And what really blew him away is that O’Hare International Airport is only about 20 minutes by car. Really! I’m not kidding! My neighbor is a business exec, and he frequently goes into the city or to the airport for business trips. Living in The Glen made his commutes much faster and easier.
There are many more advantages to living in The Glen, especially the variety of home types. We have single family homes, townhomes, row homes, duplexes and condos. Give me a call and I’ll tell you about them. I’m a long time Glen homeowner and an award-winning Realtor who focuses on The Glen.
