While prolific 20th century Chicago area designer David Adler was known for his attention to detail, the architect penned this 1930 home in suburban Libertyville for perhaps his most discerning client—his own mother. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the mansion is situated on nearly three acres of wooded and landscaped grounds.
The 3,500-square-foot main house features five bedrooms and two full and two-half bathrooms. The Libertyville estate also features a three car garage and stand alone coach house with two bedrooms, a living room, and its own kitchen.
Restored and updated with modern conveniences and appliances in 2005, the property retains the Old World-inspired millwork, flooring, and other architectural details for which Adler is best known.
The home listed in mid 2015 for $2.15 million before repeatedly hopping on and off the market, fluctuating between roughly $1.8 million and $1.3 million. It returned this week seeking $1.429 million.
