The current owners purchased this magnificent English Country home in 2011 and began a massive renovation of both home and property. They added 2500 square feet that includes a new living room with space above where they created a more lavishly scaled primary suite with dual marble bathrooms and dressing rooms. This residence is perfectly set down a winding private road on two lush acres. The grandly scaled, well proportioned rooms, with mostly floor-to-ceiling windows, offers a great sense of the outdoors with beautiful vistas of the meticulously maintained property. Authentic European finishes run throughout, with masterful details at every turn. The design of this European style residence offers what the market is looking for today - privacy, space, luxury, comfort, and plenty of room for visitors and family. The crowning glory is a stunning, new slate roof with copper flashings, gutters, and downspouts. The oversized screen porch with an 18' umbrella ceiling with two skylights, and a brick built-in grilling station serves as the owners summer living room. All new mature landscaping, and formal English Boxwood gardens provides a lush, exceptional setting. Bluestone heated walkways and patio expand the house and integrate seamlessly into the landscaping. The residence comprises more than 13,000 square feet over four levels, and a four car heated garage with an Epoxy floor for easy cleaning, a whole house natural gas generator, and a newer, extensive underground irrigation system around the entire perimeter of the property. This residence is conveniently located close to town, restaurants, shops, transportation, five beaches, two public golf courses, one is a par three, an ice skating arena, and award winning schools...and it is just 15 minutes from downtown Chicago. Please see the attached list of features and improvements and call for an appointment to view this magnificent residence.
