District 27 is quite large as far as acreage is concerned. The homes built in District 27 are generally from the 1970s and 1980s. Many of the homes in District 27 are nice, solid colonial homes. These generally have four or five bedrooms upstairs and a two-car garage. There are some solid ranch homes in District 27, and the subdivision Charlemagne is a great neighborhood that has nice space for a four-bedroom ranch.
Both the lots and the homes are bigger in District 27 than in District 28. However, the prices tend to be a touch less because you are a bit further from town. But, District 27 has a strong sense of community and the owners take care of their properties and upkeep their yards.
In addition, the children who live in District 27 will get to know each other extremely well over the course of their school lives because they start with Kindergarten through 2nd grade at Hickory Point grade school. They move to Shabonee for grades 4 & 5 and then they all attend Wood Oaks Junior High for grades 6 through 8. Again, this district feeds into Glenbrook North.
Because the district is so big, it might be harder for kids to walk or ride their bikes to a friend’s home, as riding their bikes outside of their immediate subdivision could prove intimidating as the district is surrounded by Dundee, Pfingsten, Sanders and Techny. However, within this large boundary are incredibly tight communities and subdivisions that have their own culture and sense of community.
