What's for sale in the Grand Canyon of Winnetka?

The stretch of Sheridan Road north of Tower Road in Winnetka is one of the most scenic areas in Chicago's North Shore suburbs. It's also a favorite among student drivers who have few opportunities to navigate winding roads in hilly topography. Everyone calls the area "the ravines" and I've just learned from the Winnetka Historical Society that some refer to it as the "Grand Canyon of Winnetka." Really?

The map view at Redfin surfaces 3 Winnetka homes for sale east of Sheridan Road in the ravines.

A fourth home, according to Dennis Rodkin's Deal Estate column at Chicago Magazine, is under contract subject to contingencies and is still being shown. You can view the home and its spectacular setting in the above video. Not to be missed in the video is a barefoot tie-wearing Rodkin walking the beach with the bottoms of his trousers rolled.
