BTW - another difference between the areas. Most Winnetka/Kenilworth types would know to put this in "Chicago Suburbs" instead of "Illinois". I'm not saying its our superior test scores, but you never know (humor intended).
The whole response was funny, but especially this.

the north shore has class but is not showy (except for those new homes) and has a small town feel but are acessible to the city. I dont live in chicagoland or even the states (do you guys even say the states) and ive never heard of the glen. But from this board it seems like its full of mcmansions while winnetka and kenilworth are filled with charming perfectly sized homes.

No, it was red brick with columns, but I know many others in the area are Lannon stone.

Nope...after your classy response Anthera I still don't get it. It's a freakin' lake. If it was an ocean I would understand. There's a sucker born every minute...

You must be joking. Have you ever even visited Lake Michigan? You make it sound like a retention pond. The lake can be just as treacherous as any ocean, and is truly an inland sea in every sense of the word...

Storms also occur faster on the Great Lakes than oceans.

I love what they were able to create at The Glen with SOM's foresight. You don't find a typical cookie-cutter type development there. It's well laid out and the homes are conducive to interaction with neighbors: front porches, garages that aren't plastered on the front of homes, driveways in the rear, lawns and parkways in front.

It all comes down to "location, location, location." Many of those on the north shore have convenient shuttle service on the Metra to Chicago, with the train stations within walking distances for many.
