Not to be confused with the Winnetka country club community of Indian Hills, Indian Hill Estates is in Wilmette. Developed from subdivided farmland in the 50’s and 60’s and laid out by architect Philip Mayer, this neighborhood looks more like a typical suburban subdivision than most of the other Wilmette neighborhoods. It has winding roads, cul de sacs, big lots and stone gates at the entrances to the subdivision.
Indian Hill Estates covers a 170 acre area north of Lake Street, west of Hunter Road, east of Hibbard Road and south of Illinois Road and Thornwood Avenue. Lots are often irregularly shaped and range in size from 8,000 to 30,000 sq. ft. Houses are typically larger than those in neighboring Kenilworth Gardens, with 4 to 6 bedrooms, 3 to 5 baths and price tags to match. Housing styles include Tudors, colonials, French country, Arts and Crafts and a few ranches sprinkled here and there. During the recent housing boom many of the smaller homes were torn down and replaced by new construction.
Homes in the area are served by Harper Elementary School (K-4) at 1101 Dartmouth Street.
Housing prices in Indian Hill Estates range from $800,000 to $2,000,000 (a few even higher).
