    Property Details

    Exceptional opportunity to own one of Libertyville's most admired homes on a 1/3 acre lot and LESS THAN A BLOCK TO DOWNTOWN! An impressive foyer with original extra wide staircase drenched in rich, oak wood greets guests upon arrival. This well maintained 3860 sq feet stunner features newer roof and gutters, 1st floor office, 10-foot ceilings, 3 fireplaces, spacious bedrooms, attached garage and cozy sunroom with beautiful views of the yard. All the original hardwood floors (both 1st and 2nd level), molding and trim continue to gracefully cap off the home. Living space extends to the finished attic which can be used as a bedroom, playroom or exercise area. Enjoy the yard surrounded by mature trees. Plenty of room to entertain, relax and for kids to play. Great as is, renovate to fit your needs or build your dream home. The potential is endless. Walk to train, restaurants, library and shops. Embrace downtown Libertyville living! Two mayors and the first woman in Illinois to vote have called 235 Cook Ave their home. This historic beauty is ready for its next owners! New carpeting and high-efficiency boiler just installed! Also, taxes should be lowered and reflected on next year's tax bill.
