Tour week – a drive through Wilmette's Kenilworth Gardens

While I'm away on vacation this week, I'm dipping into the archives to show you around parts of the North Shore suburbs we haven't visited in a while.

Kenilworth Gardens is the area of Wilmette bounded on the east by Ridge, on the south (approximately) by Lake, on the north by the Indian Hill Club, and on the west by Hunter or Illinois, depending on who you ask.

Taylor Lindstrom has lived in Kenilworth Gardens for more than a dozen years, and is raising her two children there. She's also a real estate agent with Prudential Rubloff and has worked with many buyers and sellers in the neighborhood over the years.

The videos in this series offer an informative look at real estate and how life's lived in the Kenilworth Gardens neighborhood in Wilmette -- an area that's been immensely popular with young families due to its location, housing stock and schools. It was shot two years ago, so pricing information is not up to date.

The first two videos, above, focus on Kenilworth Gardens' location and amenities. In the following videos, Taylor and I drive around the neighborhood, chatting about real estate prices, rents and housing styles. We then double back to lifestyle issues. And, finally, we meet one of the neighbors who organize the annual Thornwood Park Concert and picnic.
