A converted barn on acreage in Libertyville

15611 West Rockland Rd, Libertyville, Illinois

The 7,000 square foot, 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath converted barn at 15611 West Rockland Road in Libertyville is sited on 1.75 acres and accessed by a long drive.

Before you begin objecting that 1.75 acres doesn't amount to "acreage," consider the following. The property is surrounded on 3 sides by forest preserve (i.e., property tax-free acreage) and backs up to the 31-mile Des Plaines River Trail, which begins just south of the Wisconsin border and ends in Deerfield.

Extensive windows and a 1,000 foot wrap-around deck immerse the home in its natural surroundings. The asking price is $1,400,000, through Coldwell Banker's Highland Park office.

Not familiar with Libertyville? It's home to one of the state's top 10 high schools (in a virtual tie on achievement tests with Lake Forest High School), and a community that fits its friendly, small town description in this recent Tribune profile.
