Property Description

The luxury of your own world! Your own Family Compound, with very low taxes, right here in Central Lake county. Windblown Hill, approx. 84 acres with large main house, nanny suite, several caretaker cottages, stables, greenhouse, walking riding trails, silos, exhibition halls, garages, barns, and so much more. Thoughtful conservation easements retain its charm. Escape from everything here and give your family the gift of clean, safe, country living. Self-contained and seemingly far from the troubles of the world- yet only 7 miles to downtown Libertyville restaurants and Metra. Main Homestead designed by Shaw, Metz, and Dolio (architect of Merchandise Mart and Civic Opera), to maximize views of the surrounding countryside. So much privacy and room to realize your dream. Acres of flowering prairie, walking/riding trails through your own woods, and farmable acreage on some of the best soil in Illinois. Pool has its own pool house with shower and bathroom. Horse barn has 7 stalls, paddocks and sand walking areas for the horses. Take your horses for a many mile ride through the woods, stop at the pond, and just enjoy a carefree life away from the worries of the city. Numerous other buildings could have horse stalls, indoor riding areas. Almond Marsh Forest Preserve abuts your acreage to the north. Millennium Trail bike path runs half a mile south. The southern portion of your land has in past been rented to a hay farmer for nearby equestrian properties. AG zoning means low taxes: $22,000 for 84 acres!
