There are many factors in the cost of your taxes. They take into consideration square footage, # of bdrms, # of bathrooms and what the school districts are. For instance, homes in the Stevenson HS district pay higher taxes than Vernon Hills HS etc. If you tell me approx what you would need/want to pay in taxes I can tell you where you can find a house like yours for that amount. Are you looking to stay at around 13-15K or even less than that?
