Hi, my son will be attending University of Chicago Lab School on the south side of Chicago. We want to move from Crown Point to be closer to the school, but still have easy access to the hospitals in Munster, Crown Point, and Merrillville where my husband works. When I look at a map, it looks like Highland would be the best place to live with an easy commute to school and work, but I don't know a lot about the town. I'd like to be convenient to supermarkets and big-box stores as well. We would like to move into a 3,500-4,500 square foot house. Are there subdivisions in Highland that have homes that large? Or large lots for sale?

Thanks!

You're going to be hard pressed to find something like that in Highland, unless I'm forgetting about a subdivision. You may be better off looking in Schererville, which borders Highland. You're only talking a few extra minutes. There's also Munster, but that's overpriced in my opinion.

I believe that extreme southwest Highland and south Munster (south of 45th st) has what you want.

Would you happen to know the names of the subdivisions in that area?

Thanks so much!

White Oak Estates, Meadows of Saint George are the high end neighborhoods in Munster (on the South side of town). They're South of 45th and East of White Oak. There is a new development (Park West) in the same area on the West side of White Oak. It's still being developed, so the houses may not be ready for a while.
I don't think the high end areas extend into Highland, but am not sure on this. The Highland section is largely tract (i.e. cookie-cutter) homes and apartments. They're nice, but not custom made high end homes like the ones in Munster neighborhoods mentioned.

There are high end houses on the Highland side of White Oak. There are about 6 existing houses that are for sale now. 3 are in the $400,000 range and the other 3 are in the high $500,000 to $600,000 range. They all have at least 4 bedrooms and at least 2 and a half baths (most have at least 3 or 4 baths).

There are larger homes in other places in Highland as well. There is a area off of Ridge Road near the town hall that has high end homes as well. There are some larger homes in other areas in town but are not as high end as White Oak but are better then average.

Highland is more affordable then Munster if you are looking for a little more value. Its a great time to buy a high end house, since they are the slowest to sell and there are many to choose from now.

These are all great suggestions. In addition to White Oak, I would also recommend the Arbor Hill subdivision by Southridge Elementary, Brantwood by Wicker Park, and Lakeside (around the lake). White Oak and Arbor Hill have newer homes; whereas, Brantwood and Lakeside have somewhat older homes.
