Built in 2000, this 4 Bedroom, 4-1/2 Bathroom home was custom designed, inspired by the Prairie School style. It sits on one-plus acres and has 5,600 square feet of comfortable living space.
Attention to detail is around every corner. There is custom woodwork and 3 ornate wood ceiling details throughout the entire home, in addition to unique art glass windows in the Foyer, Living Room, Dining Room, and Library; and lighted art glass ceiling installations in the Formal Dining Room and Kitchen.
The first floor formal spaces feature hardwood oak flooring, and there’s free- form Raja Slate in the Kitchen, Breakfast Room, and Laundry Room. Both the Living Room and dramatic two-story Family Room boast cozy wood-burning Fireplaces with gas starters. Slate and Fond du Lac Stone face the Living Room and Family Room Fireplaces, respectively. The expansive and comfortable Family Room has a built-in audio visual entertainment system.
The Chef-designed Kitchen has a large island with an additional prep sink and disposal, and clerestory windows above the kitchen sink. The centerpiece of the kitchen is the professional La Cornue range with two ovens, hand made in France for the space. There’s also a Thermidor convection oven built into the island. The dedicated 36” Sub-Zero built in refrigerator is large enough for grand parties. Off the kitchen, the Butlers Pantry leads to the formal Dining Room, and has another service sink with disposal, a second dishwasher, and dedicated 36” Sub-Zero freezer. The open floor plan leads to the vast eat-in area and wet bar with Scotsman ice maker and drink refrigerator, and additional wine refrigerator. Just beyond that is the inviting Family Room. Tall French windows and doors front the stone patio, which overlooks the beautiful back yard.
The Library has a wall of built in oak shelves and cabinets, beautiful art glass windows, and access to its own private outdoor patio.
There are first- and second-floor Master Bedrooms with sumptuous baths, Kohler and Perrin & Rowe fixtures, heated floors, separate whirlpool tubs and showers, with a relaxing and 4 therapeutic steam shower in the second floor master. The grand oak staircase leads to three upstairs bedrooms. The second floor Master has an enormous walk-in closet with a built-in dresser and three-way mirror. The corner third and fourth bedrooms are more than large enough for king-sized beds, and each has an ensuite.
The lighting plan was professionally designed to ensure that the architectural details of the home are dramatically enhanced, both inside and out, day and night. The recessed lighting with Lutron controls was strategically placed to provide beauty and function.
Outside, there are large Quartz Stone patios at the front entryway, off the Library, and adjacent to the Family Room and Breakfast Room. The rear patio has a gas grill with built-in gas supply line. Outdoor decks upstairs are finished in synthetic low-maintenance decking outside the upstairs hallway, upstairs Master, and Third Bedroom; in addition, there’s a huge wraparound outdoor deck accessed by the upstairs hallway and Master Bath. Eight specially made concrete urn planters adorn the decks and patios of the second floor.
The first floor full-sized Laundry Room has a laundry chute from the upstairs master, and leads to the attached three-car garage. There’s a whole house Central Vac system.
One of the most spectacular features of the property is the stunning landscape. The acreage is planted with over 500 drought-tolerant and low-maintenance native Illinois species, nationally- and locally-recognized for its outstanding collection by The National Wildlife Federation and The Chicago Botanic Garden. Grassy lawns meander throughout the park-like property. Mature trees and shrubbery provide privacy.
There is zoned (by floor) gas-forced heating and central air. The 100-year concrete tile roof is low-maintenance and worry-free. Copper in-roof gutters and downspouts compliment the lines of the home. A full-sized unfinished attic over entire all the second rooms floor provides a great deal of storage. In addition, there’s also a full sized, concrete floored five-foot-high DRY crawl space under entire first floor, also great for storage. There is a sump pump with a backup. Extra protection is provided by an outdoor natural gas generator. An advanced security system with glass break 5 sensors covers the entire home.
