• 740 Greenwood was designated a Glencoe Landmark 1992, as part of the group of initial Landmark Designations in Glencoe.

• It was designated for its historic significance , as well as its architectural significance.

• Historically, it is associated with the life of James K. Calhoun , a Glencoe pioneer, whose volunteerism included serving on the Glencoe School Board, various Boards of the Glencoe Union Church (formerly the Glencoe Congregational Church), as a Justice of the Peace, as well as the Village President.

• The house is architecturally significant, as one of the few remaining original integral examples of Queen Anne architecture in Glencoe.

• The status of 740 Greenwood was upgraded to a Certified Glencoe Landmark in 2000. This level of designation requires binding review by the Historic Preservation for any proposed alterations that are visible from the public way and require a permit. It offers potential tax advantages noted below.

• In 2010, 740 Greenwood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was the second such listing in Glencoe.


• Certified Landmark Status: This status allows for the owner to apply for the State of Illinois Tax Assessment Freeze. If a minimum of 25% of the assessor' s fair market value is invested in the renovation of the residence, the property will be considered for a 12 year Tax Assessment Freeze. This is an eight year Freeze, at the value of the taxes at the time of application, followed by a four year ramp up to its correct level. At this time, the assessor's fair market value is $916,060, which means that if 25% of that amount, or $219,015, is spent on the renovation of the house, the property qualifies for a Tax Freeze. It should also be noted that the renovation must comply with the Standards of the Secretary of the Interior for Renovation to qualify.

• Listing on the National Register of Historic Places: This status makes 740 eligible for the Facade Easement Program. In concept, the facade of the house is essentially donated to a local preservation group, typically the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois. If approved, a credit of 15% of the appraised value of the properly is credited against the owner' s income tax, generally over a five year period. For example, if a house is valued at $2M, that results in a $300,000 credit over a five year period.

Custom built in 2003, the Rabine Estate is a 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath brick & stone, French country style home with four stone fireplaces set on nearly 11 acres.  From the moment you cross over the cobble stone bridge that leads to this home, it is clear it was built for entertaining and family.  In the premier gated community of Tuscany Creek, a 5 home Subdivision within the larger Dutch Creek Estates Subdivision, this ideal family compound is only 20 minutes South of Lake Geneva and just 5-10 minutes from many chain of lakes boat slips.  It is one hour North West of O'Hare and one hour South West of Milwaukee.  It would cost well over $3 million to build this home today.  

Like this wonderful home, the grounds provide a perfect setting for family fun and entertaining.  There are conservation woods and wetlands to the North, as well as frontage and ownership of two swimming, and fishing ponds.  One can golf at home, teeing off from one of 7 tee boxes and landing on the artificial turf green on the water’s edge or one of the bunkers on each side.  The beach, fire-pit, outdoor kitchen (complete with built in Viking grill and refrigerator) and large gazebo are all perfect for small and large outdoor gatherings.  The blue stone patios and walks lead you graciously through the professionally landscaped lawn.
