It was first listed for $1,200,000. I looked through the Cook County Recorders files at http://www.ccrd.info and can not give you an exact answer. 5 acres and a nice house in the Hills is obviously worth a lot more. I used to ride my motorcycle near there, as I grew up around the corner. My folks still have the farm there. Where did you see it? Could it have been a TYPO? Or else someone got an outstanding deal. I show the listing was cancelled on 6/11/08. There have been some low sales, but not that drastic....Are you looking for a home near there? I can show/send you homes that meet your needs and dreams....

If you choose to live there you will be enjoying one of the most beautiful places in the country. The 5 acre zoning keeps the estates and horse farms from being encroached on. The forest preserves, network of ring trails, huge 100+ acre estates/farms/ranches, beautiful older contemporaries and reasonable prices make it a great option that many overlook. My parents have our family farm and houses there and they have had all the animals and a great life there for 40 years. I could probably arrange for you to get a free African Pygmy Goat to keep your horses company.
If you want to look at some areas and homes, just give me a buzz.

Emma. Tell them 750k and you will put a contract on it today. I bet they take it.

You guys are fast. Thanks a lot for the answers. I saw it on trulia, you can see the price by going over the red pin on the map. Not sure how reliable that is. Here is the link :
