Welcome to a year-round vacation on the Chain O' Lakes! This home has been tenderly loved and updated within the past 5 years. Nearly everything inside and out has been touched and is top quality. The views from this house are absolutely outstanding, and the yard is an unheard-of size for the area. The property consists of three parcel lots, for a total of approximately .82 acres, including 90 feet of river frontage and a 50-foot-long sandy beach! There is also an additional lot across the street (50x150) that is buildable; perfect for a huge garage or shed! This home is located above the lock and dam, which means navigating upriver to the 10+ lakes on the Chain is quick and easy. The structure itself stands outside of the flood plain, with FEMA paperwork to support it. No flood insurance is required. The home is east-facing, so you'll enjoy beautiful sunrises while gazing at the river. You'll also appreciate the shade the house brings in the afternoon while you entertain guests on the 14x16 paver patio; all while watching the boats cruise by! There is also a side deck that is perfect for a grill or smoker. The driveway is MASSIVE and has room for 10 cars! Park your RV and boat at home and save on winter storage! The roof of both the detached 1.5 car garage and the home is standing seam metal, with hidden fasteners and Kynar paint. The home is very low maintenance, with vinyl siding and composite decking. The home is also very energy efficient, with total utility bills for 2021 totaling less than $2600! This is thanks to the gas boiler system for in-floor heating for the entire main floor and all bathrooms. There are also 3 mini splits, with a total of 9 heads throughout the house for fully customizable HVAC zones. The mini-splits are also equipped with heat pumps. The interior units are all controllable by individual remotes for every bedroom. The hot water heater is a high-efficiency tankless system, and there is a water filter and water softener system for the entire house. Walk in the dramatic entryway and you'll immediately notice the 5 floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the beauty of the Fox River, along with letting in an abundance of natural light. There is recessed lighting throughout the main level and a stone feature wall in the main living area. The cords for the media system are all hidden and routed to a closet- no messy equipment shelves are needed. There is a built-in surround sound system complete with a subwoofer in the living area, and two additional speakers in the kitchen. The dining area has gorgeous lighting and sits adjacent to the floor-to-ceiling windows for year-round beautiful views whilst eating meals with friends and family. There is also an area for a workstation or home office. The bathroom on the main level is a full bath with a walk-in shower, conveniently located off the kitchen. This gourmet kitchen is bright and cheerful and loaded with improvements, including a custom sliding quartz island top that accommodates additional seating for guests. There is a raised beverage/wine cooler, built-in electric stovetop, dual convection ovens, quartz counters, and stunning off-white cabinetry. Off the kitchen is a cozy wood-burning fireplace, with a stone facing and a handmade barn wood mantle. Up the lit staircase is 4 bedrooms, including the main suite with more large windows with views of the river. This master bedroom also has a big walk-in closet with custom organizers. The ensuite bathroom is a dream, with a double-head tiled shower, and extended glass on both sides. There is also a roomy soaking tub. The second floor has an additional guest bathroom across from the laundry area, easily closed off with custom sliding panel doors. This home will provide the next owners years of low maintenance enjoyment, with memories to be made on the river and in charming McHenry. Do not hesitate to see this one, this is the life on the water you've been waiting for!
