Bloomberg, the prestigious business publication, today reported that The Glen has been the 7th fastest growing high-income neighborhood in America since 2000. The Glen, on the grounds of the former Glenview Naval Air Station, is a wonderful retail and residential development in the Chicagonorth shore village of Glenview. It is also my home. I purchased a home here in the early days of the development back in 2003. Here is a link to the Bloomberg article, and if you are interested in living in The Glen please let me know.
Walk in and feel right at home in this stunning brick colonial residing in one of Glenview’s premier neighborhoods, Southgate at The Glen. Elegant and comfortable, this beautiful residence is situated across from a park with a walking path to Westbrook School.
The gracious, open floor plan makes entertaining easy for a small dinner party in the lovely dining room or a large Super Bowl gathering in the spacious family room. A breakfast room adjoins the striking chef’s kitchen with granite counters, a large island, stainless steel appliances and a wine bar. The wood floors are new or refinished, new carpeting and beautiful white shutters have been added.
1449 Kittyhawk is open and inviting, flooded with natural light, and boasts architectural details throughout. There are 6 bedrooms. The exquisite master suite includes a sitting area, spa bath with double sinks, soaking tub, and double shower. The sixth bedroom and a full bath are in the basement perfect for guests or a live-in nanny. The basement offers a bar, workout room, a study area, and tons of storage.
The property is beautifully landscaped, and the tree lined back yard provides privacy and a lovely stone patio.
My family and I live in The Glen, an upscale residential and retail community in Glenview Illinois. We moved here in 2003 which was in the early days of the development. We have come to love our home, Gallery Park, Lake Glenview, Glen Town Center’s wonderful restaurants and shops, and the several lovely neighborhoods filled with single family homes, townhomes, duplexes, and two-flats. All of these things attracted us to The Glen in the first place. But what I never considered back then was access to emergency health care. A person doesn’t really think of things like that when looking for a home.
Well, about ten years ago my husband had a health emergency in the middle of the night. Naturally I was terribly frightened, but I had the good sense to immediately call 911. Then came a very pleasant surprise and great relief. The EMTs arrived at my home in two minutes. That’s not a typo. Two minutes! You see, The Glen is home to a first class fire station with 24 hour emergency services.
Trained EMT professionals got my husband in an ambulance quickly. Off he went to the hospital – Glenbrook Hospital – barely five minutes away. From my call to the hospital, barely 10 to 12 minutes elapsed. Fortunately my husband’s condition was stabilized, and he has recovered. But I’ve never forgotten that night and the remarkable speed in which he was treated.
When I talk to prospective Glen home buyers I always point out the ready access all residents have to emergency services…fire, health, and police. (Glenview’s police headquarters borders The Glen.) Some potential buyers initially wonder why a Realtor is telling them about emergency services, but after I tell them my story, they understand.

Single family homes with six bedrooms are hard to find. And the one I am writing about today is particularly uncommon. When you imagine a home with this many bedrooms you might think about a three story home with three bedrooms on each of the top two floors. But that’s not the case here.
1592 Primrose, a stunning, two-story Colonial home in the highly sought-after Landings neighborhood in The Glen (in Glenview, Illinois), has a main floor bedroom with ensuite bath AND a master bedroom, also with ensuite bath, on the second floor. In other words, it has what can be described as two master bedrooms…perhaps using the one on the first floor as an in-law suite. That’s unusual…and unusually attractive to many buyers.
This home also offers five full bathrooms and a first floor powder room. There is a lovely formal living room with fireplace, a stately dining room, an office, and a walk-in pantry. The kitchen is designed for entertaining, consisting of two islands with granite counters, a breakfast area, and a wet bar. There are new wood floors in the main living areas.
The second floor is home to the other bedrooms, a loft with built-in desk, and a laundry room. The garage has been extended for three cars; and the backyard offers a children’s play area and a lovely paver patio.
1592 Primrose is close to everything The Glen has to offer. It is a short walk to Gallery Park,Lake Glenview, the Glenview Park Center, Little Bear Garden, and Glen Town Center’s many restaurants, shops, and Arclight Cinema. It is also in close proximity to The Glen’s Metra station, The Glen Club’s championship golf course, Glenview Prairie Club (golf and paddle tennis), and a Jewell Osco grocery store & pharmacy.
This beautiful home is offered for sale at $1,169,000. For more information please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-401-1802.
