An insider's guide to Highland Park, and a new listing

The current issue of Chicago Magazine takes a brief look at the dining, shopping and entertainment scene in Highland Park.

The article begins with the obligatory reference to the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan's having taken up residence in Highland Park and opened a tea house. The scent of tea – as the term was used in my youth – permeated the air at the one Smashing Pumpkins concert I attended.

Check out some of Chicago Mag's dining options if you're out house-hunting in Highland Park.

You might also want to check out a recently-listed 7,500 square foot 5-bedroom home with 5 full and 2 half baths on an acre at 3434 Old Mill Rd in Highland Park.

The home was offered for sale for $2,200,000 back in July of 2006 when we shot the above picture. It's currently listed at $1,592,000.
