Property Description

Rare Opportunity to call this HOME! Positioned on 1/3 acre lot in the HOT desirable area of Downtown Libertyville. Originally built in 1904, updated and very well maintained with all the character and charm intact- with kitchen and bath updates over the years. Open the door and be impressed! Original hardwood floors, cascading oak staircase, deep moldings, original pocket doors and 2 fireplaces plus beautiful windows showcase the exterior property. The flexible floor plan allows you to choose how to LIVE in the Home. Possible 2 main floor bedrooms or 2 main floor offices. A regal formal living room and quaint dining room plus a updated kitchen with breakfast area combined offer many options. The second floor is equally charming with spacious bedrooms, an updated bathroom and a roof top deck. The 3rd floor walk up awaits your creative ideas. The basement is spacious and usable. The Carriage House is original and even has the tie up for the horses. The second floor awaits you to use your creativity and transform into office/ game/playroom/studio or many other options. The property is glorious with beautiful tress and gardens all keeping with the charm that was intended for this home. Many years ago the 2nd floor was converted to an apartment. Current owners converted back to a single family but some utilities are still billed separate. A lot in town 100x145 is extremely desirable. We encourage you to stop in the village and research your possibilities. This Home is one of the most admired in town!
