Wauconda is a medium sized community north of the Barrington and Lake Zurich areas located in Lake County. It shares the country suburban feel of Barrington but also has planned unit neighborhoods including the large subdivision of Liberty Lakes. Wauconda also has areas with homes on 5 acres close to Lakewood Forest Preserve making horse riding a breeze for equestrian property owners. Wauconda is close to Stonewall Orchard Golf Course but golf homes are not available in Wauconda.
The center of Wauconda surrounds Bangs Lake and waterfront properties are available. There are two smaller lakes also with homes adjacent. There are no active adult communities in Wauconda but these can be found in nearby Grayslake. Liberty Lakes neighborhood has been the source of new construction for several years but the neighborhood is almost complete. Re-sale homes in Liberty Lakes are already coming to the market. Wauconda is not a luxury homes market but there are a few larger homes attracting higher price points.
