The Cage or Indian Hill Estates in Wilmette?
Where to Buy a Home?


Home buyers looking to buy an upper end home often concentrate on the The Cage, Wilmette, ILCAGE area of Wilmette - roughly the area east of Green Bay Road comprised of Chestnut, Ashland, Greenwood and Elmwood streets (I include Forest as well.)  In Wilmette, as in Kenilworth, the more expensive homes are located east, or closer to the lake.  Or are they?

 

Indian Hill Estates is an enclave located just southwest of Indian Hill Club and matches the CAGE in terms of home prices.  In ambiance, they are decidedly different.  Indian Hill Indian Hill Estates, Wilmette, ILEstates was a planned community with most homes having been built in the 1930s and later - lots and homes here are larger and most homes are brick. The CAGE's housing stock is much older, some turn of the century, and homes have large front porches and the streets are the original brick pavers.

If you are looking for a home in either area of Wilmette, here's what's available now:

Remarkably similar in terms of availably and pricing - different overall "feel" and different Wilmette schools - Central School serves the Cage and Harper School serves the Indian Hill Estate area.  The CAGE is more "urban" in feel only because it's closer to the train and downtown Wilmette. Indian Hill Estates might be better suited for someone who takes the Edens Expressway to work.

Hi Barbara - I know that lots of people here winter in Vero Beach - my neighbors have a condo there and keep telling us we can use it.  I'll look you up if we ever take them up on it!

Lanre - This market report is comparing two similarly priced areas in Wilmette. 

Betty & John - I think the older the homes are, the more charm and character there is.  Many of these homes in Wilmette have been remodeled and updated and feel like new construction inside!
