The new Westgate at the Glen housing development in Glenview, Illinois officially opened for sale last Saturday, May 31. The developer, E.R. James Partners held a “reservation event” for people who had pre-registered their interest. The neighborhood, on nearly 30 acres of land at the northwest corner of W. Lake Avenue and Shermer Road, will have 173 luxury homes when completed. It promises to be a very popular addition to The Glen which has 8 other neighborhoods offering a wide variety of home types.
71 row homes, 68 mews townhomes, and 34 single family homes are planned. This development may offer the last opportunity for new construction single family homes in The Glen. Of particular interest to empty nesters will be the models with first floor master bedroom suites. The row homes and single family homes will have first floor master bedrooms. The townhomes are configured with second floor master bedrooms. The development will be built in two phases. Each phase will include a mix of row homes and townhomes. The entire development will have common areas; and it is intended to provide nearly maintenance-free living.
A big part of the attraction of Westgate is its proximity to two golf courses and Glen Town Center’s many restaurants, shops, and movie theater. Just across W. Lake is the ever popular Glen Club’s championship 18 hole course designed by Tom Fazio. On the other side of Shermer Road you’ll find Glenview Prairie Club, a 9 hole course which also offers paddle tennis. Glen Town Center is only a short walk away as is Kohl Children’s Museum. The development is also walking distance to the Glen’s Metra station offering service to downtown Chicago.
I attended the kick off with several of my clients. We received brochures, lots of information, and a nice lunch. Those who attended will be given appointment times to visit with E.R. James sales associates who will provide detailed floor plans and a list of available upgrades. I plan on attending these sessions with my clients; and I will write about all of this in future blogs.
