North Shore Views just reported the 10 highest-priced sales on the North Shore during 2010. Three of them, surprisingly, were in Wilmette.
Not a single one of the 40 highest-priced properties currently on the market in the North Shore suburbs is in Wilmette, which is one of the factors that make the 2010 results unexpected. In any given year Wilmette, unlike Lake Forest, Glencoe, Kenilworth or Winnetka, has very few homes for sale at $3 million or more.
The highest-priced Wilmette sale, was at 3 Canterbury Ct, on the lake just south of the Wilmette harbor. It sold for $4.75 million. In a very curious development, it was listed for sale for $4.82 million just four months later, and is currently for sale, according to Redfin.
