Most Chicagoans know the tiny Village of Highwood for its restaurants and its modest workers' cottages.
It's been little more than a decade since Highwood began going upscale with the annexation of a part of Fort Sheridan when it was decommissioned by the military. New homes were built, existing buildings were converted to condos, and officers' homes were renovated and sold to the public.
Homes in Fort Sheridan have sold for in excess of $1 million. At the moment, the highest-priced offering is a 3,710 square foot 4-bedroom, 4 ½ bath home with a 3-car garage built 10 years ago at 63 Holabird Loop. The home is pictured above.
The "Loop" streets at Fort Sheridan are aptly named: they end where they began, resulting in no through traffic and typically have a small park at the center of the loop.
Two other recently-built homes are currently for sale on Holabird Loop. A 5-bedroom, 3 ½ bath is priced at $749,000. The 3,200 square foot 3-bedroom, 2-bath home at 51 Holabird Loop Is open for viewing Sunday, February 20, from noon to 2.
