May was confused this year. Very confused. It couldn’t decide if it was spring or summer. Winter even. But when we got a few nice days I saw something that warmed my heart…outdoor tables and chairs in Glen Town Center. sigh…
Glen Town Center was one of the first of a new concept in suburban living in what we know as The Glen in Glenview Illinois. Think of The Glen as an urban neighborhood smack dab in the middle of a Chicago area suburb. 2000 townhomes, row homes, duplexes, condos and single family homes, and a fresh-from-scratch retail village at the center of it all. Casual and fancy-schmancy dining with a wide variety of cuisine including Italian, Thai, Greek, Irish, Japanese fusion, Mexican and American. There’s also a coffee shop, ice cream parlor, cookie shop, wine bar, sandwich shops, juice bar and yogurt…and much more. Whether you want burgers or chateaubriand, sushi or pizza, bangers & mash or tacos, lamb or salmon – or just a salad and a cocktail Glen Town Center has it all. And it’s within walking distance of any home in The Glen. You can eat in or eat out. Up to you.
Maybe you want to do a little shopping. Glen Town Center has that, too. Upscale boutiques abound along with a really cool bookstore. There are larger stores, too, like Von Maur and Dick’s Sporting Goods. It’s fun you want? Try our wonderful movie theater, cooking school, art and ceramics studios or, for the kids, Funtopia.
If this sounds like a great place to live you’re right. I can speak from experience as I’ve lived here since the beginning of the development. Let me know if you would like to live here, too. I am an award winning Realtor and Glen booster. Give me a call, and I’ll show you around.
