What do the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team, Ginger Rogers & architect David Adler have in common? This elegant two plus acre estate at 1480 Milwaukee/309 Carriage Hill in Libertyville, of course! Hollywood movie star Irene Castle, and founder of the "Orphans of The Storm" rented the home for a period of time. Ginger Rogers portrayed Castle's life in a Hollywood film. Castle was married to the owner of the Chicago Blackhawks, Major Frederic C. McLaughlin when she designed the team's now famous Blackhawk's logo. The moment you see this comfortably sized 5 bedroom home it will capture your dreams just as it did for the architects own mother. Here you will find relaxation within the picturesque landscape while enjoying the privacy of the tree lined meadow adjacent to Adler Park and the Lake County Forest Preserve properties. You will be enamored by this timeless styled home and Coach House (309 Carriage) with guest living quarters and 3-car garage.
