PROPERTY TAX APPEAL BOARD'S DECISION
APPELLANT: Carol Farrell
DOCKET NO.: 04-26725.001-R-2 and 05-25844.001-R-2
PARCEL NO.: 05-27-404-003-0000
The parties of record before the Property Tax Appeal Board are
Carol Farrell, the appellant, the Cook County Board of Review by
Cook County Assistant State's Attorney John Coyne, and as
interveners, the Village of Wilmette, New Trier Township High
School District #203, the Wilmette Park District and Wilmette
School District #39, by Attorney Scott E. Longstreet of Robbins
Schwartz Nicholas Lifton & Taylor, Ltd in Chicago.
The subject property consists of a two-story, single-family
dwelling of masonry construction containing 5,631 square feet of
living area and situated on a 16,800 square foot parcel.

partial-finished basement, air-conditioning, two fireplaces and a
two-car attached garage. The subject is situated on Lake
Michigan and located in New Trier Township, Cook County.

Appeal Board consolidates the above appeals.

of the appeal. The appellant also argued the following: a lack

Cook County Assessor's office, a lack of conformity of the
subject property to general neighborhood standards, a lack of
