The average (and usually median) price of homes in the North Shore towns of Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, and Northfield usually hovers around $1,100,000.  Individually, they vary because Wilmette is large and has a diverse housing stock while Kenilworth is small and more homogeneous. ...
