Libertyville's School Street District Brownstones

School Street District Brownstones recently opened to rave reviews at a gathering of village officials, new homeowners and other guests of The Hummel Group, which unveiled the new model and celebrated completion of the first phase of the historic project.

The Hummel Group Ltd. of Palatine, which specializes in redevelopment of downtown neighborhoods, is builder of the $40 million project in downtown Libertyville.

The 31 brownstones and 18 condos are a combination of new construction and a revitalization of a historic structure, in conjunction with the preservation of trees and open space all complementing a thriving downtown district and an established residential neighborhood.

The model at 173 School St. shows a standard brownstone floor plan priced from $800,000 to $855,000 with 4,244 square feet (including basement), three bedrooms, 2 baths, full English basement and two-car attached garage with rooftop terrace. An elevator is optional.

This home features a traditional interior showcasing warm brown tones and an elegant, sophisticated look. The foyer showcases red oak flooring with an antique brown stain, custom hardwood staircase to the second level and molding-framed walls that extend into the gallery.

Off the foyer, a gas fireplace with marble surround and built-ins on either side highlight the living room, where furnishings allow for intimate conversation before dinner. An arched opening and architectural columns define the dining room, where a table is set for six. Both rooms feature crown molding.

With taupe walls, the showpiece kitchen has a Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliance package with double oven, antique white cabinetry topped with granite, large center island with wood walnut top and walk-in pantry. …
