5 beds, 3 baths, horrific traffic, in Northbrook

15 N Constance Ln, Northbrook, Illinois

The 5-bedroom, 3 bath home at 15 N Constance Ln in Northbrook is for sale at $269,000, for “land value.” The land value has, at least in the dreams of the current owner, risen significantly since last December, when the property sold for $165,500. In December of 2005 the property sold for $560,000.

If you have an aversion to living directly on Lake Cook Rd – and a much larger budget number – a 5-bedroom, 5 ½ bath new construction home is for sale at $1,175,000 at 120 Constance Ln. The home has been listed and delisted since February of 2007.

According to a Trib Local report, neighborhood residents recently objected to proposed multi-family construction in the area contending, in the words of one, that “already it’s horrific getting out onto Lake Cook Rd.”

If you’re moving to a new location, it’s always a good idea to read the local papers online, and visit the location on different days of the week at different times.
