LAKE COUNTY ACREAGE PROPERTY IN DEMAND
While sales of farm land throughout the country has shown a marked
decline Lake county estates seem to be still in much demand and many large sales
have been reported during the past few months.
Recent sales of acreage in the Lake county estate district north of Libertyville
and development of several tracts into year-round country homes has stimulated
interest in the Libertyville-Millburn district. A number of tracts
have changed hands during the last six months and others are under
negotiation. In addition brokers report an increase in the number
of inquiries received regarding estate properties in the district.
R. Douglas Stuart, president of the Quaker Oats Company, bought through
John Griffith, Inc., the former McClure farm of 120 acres, located on Onwentsia
road, five miles north of Libertyville and one and one-half miles south
of the Onwestsia Hunt Club at Millburn. This adjoins the 120-acre estate of
F. Stanley Rickcords. Mr. Stuart has already built extensive
barns and stables and remodeled the old farm house.
