The Glen’s Glen Shore condos offer luxury and affordability

The Glen in Glenview Illinois on Chicago’s north shore consists of privately owned homes, rental apartments, retirement communities and Navy housing. Of the 1,252 privately owned homes, occupied by 3,725 residents, you’ll find single family homes, townhomes, row homes, duplexes, two-flats and condo apartments. The largest of the various neighborhoods, Southgate, has 299 homes and 1,039 residents.

On the other end of the spectrum is Glen Shore, a luxury condo development with 31 units and 46 residents; and that’s my subject for today’s blog. Glen Shore is located at 2300 Chestnut Avenue, east of Attea Middle School, near Lehigh. It’s in the same area as Glenview State Bank. It is an attractive brick building with one, two and three bedroom units. The homes in the west side of the building have lovely views of Lake Glenview and Gallery Park which are the center pieces of The Glen.

One of the great attractions to Glen Shore is its proximity to the Glenview Park Center and Gallery Park. The park center offers a health & fitness center, indoor track, swimming pools, water park, a basketball court, and a senior center. Gallery Park has walking trails, tennis courts, playing fields, a lookout tower, amphitheater, Little Bear Garden, and fishing in Lake Glenview. Glen Shore is also equally convenient to the Glenview Train Station with Metra service to Chicago and Amtrak service to Milwaukee and the North Glenview/Glen Metra Station. Glen Town Center’s many shops and restaurants are also nearby.

The condos are beautiful units. One bedroom homes can be purchased in the $300s and larger unit pricing is in the $400s and $500s depending on size and view. The problem is that few come on the market due to the number and quality of homes and affordability. No homes sold in 2014, though three were sold in 2013.
