A New Home Takes Flight in Libertyville
List Price: N/A for this custom-built home
Sale Price: $3.2 million
The Property: Lots of houses come with a little workshop, but this Libertyville residence has a hangar-sized second garage, where the man of the house is building an airplane. Richard Clatch and Wendy Ward—they are both doctors—commissioned Atkinson Builders to build a home for their family of eight on a 2.2-acre lot adjacent to the Des Plaines River Trail. They closed on the purchase April 15th and will move in soon—but the body and wing pieces of the plane Clatch is building moved in months ago to the attached 1,300-square-foot hangar.

Price Points: Joe Atkinson has two neighboring lots for sale. Each is 1.75 acres, and they are priced at $525,000 and $650,000. He estimates that total costs with construction of new homes would come to about $1.8 million each.
