In this part of our tour of Riverwoods we arrive by car at a 10,500 square foot, 6 bedroom, 5 ½ bath home for sale at $2,950,000. We take a brief look at the living areas and indoor pool.

In separate video segments we tour the basement ballroom and karaoke stage and the huge master suite.

This was my first look at higher-end properties in Riverwoods. I'd been in many far more expensive homes, primarily on the North Shore and in other parts of the country, over the years. I hadn't seen anything comparable to this home in this price range.

Bill Kaplan, who's been in real estate as an agent, broker and developer for over 50 years, suggested the home would be priced far higher if were in Winnetka or Lake Forest rather than Riverwoods.

The tiny (population 4,000) Village of Riverwoods is an easily overlooked enclave in Chicago's northern suburbs, bordered by Lincolnshire, Deerfield, Northbrook and Buffalo Grove. Driving through Riverwoods it's easy to believe you're in a forest preserve rather than an inhabited place.

I recently re-connected with old friends, Bill and Sherry Kaplan, who happen to be the Mayor and First Lady of Riverwoods, and they took me on a guided tour of their bailiwick, including stops at several beautiful homes.
