Masterpiece estate designed by Adam Groth (Beaux arts, c. 1906). Built from the same local limestone as the U.S. White House stairs and Chicago's famous Water Tower. Sits atop Cherry Hill in unincorporated Will County, overlooking four pristine, park-like acres. Forty-four panels of original stained glass. The flagship among unique houses in Pilcher State Park. Six minutes to Providence High School. Nine minutes to New Lenox Metra. Sun rises pink through rosette window in master bedroom. Master suite opens onto panoramic balcony, perfect for romantic evenings under the stars. Enjoy enchanting views in every season from the massive enclosed front porch. Charming, old-world style kitchen is classic and understated, with authentic 1920s tile and latticed windows. Magnificent living and dining rooms, ten-foot ceilings, each with working fireplace. East wing features bay windows for lots of morning sunshine. Built-in cabinets and closets throughout. Enormous attic and basement with workshop. SPACIOUS HOME OFFICE WITH HIGH-SPEED INTERNET. Estate includes four acres of peaceful, landscaped retreat; three car garage, two-story carriage house, pump house, and garden shed. Magnificent limestone staircase on east side of property leads down to seasonal creek. Daffodils, peonies, and lilies of the valley line the driveway each spring. Early risers will see deer, foxes, and red tail hawks. Relax all summer under the ancient wisteria vines. Go sledding in your own front yard. Two-story carriage house has previously been used as a basketball court but could be renovated for rental income, office, or granny suite. Nestled in the Pilcher State Park conservancy district, a mesic forest of 700+ acres, the estate offers privacy, lower property taxes, a stable historic neighborhood, and friendly protective services of both County and City. Stroll beside flowing waterways and learn about local wildlife habitats at the Pilcher Park Nature Center. Go fishing or kayaking at the historic Pilcher Park Dam. Birdwatchers, artists, and photographers will love the Bird Haven Greenhouse and Conservatory. Golfers and disk-golfer swill enjoy proximity to Highland Park and the Woodruff Golf Course. Roads and trails through the Park are wheelchair accessible and are used year-round for hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing and running. Minutes from shopping, highways, fitness, schools, restaurants and all the best that New Lenox and Joliet have to offer.
