Nestled in the heart of Long Grove on a magnificent wooded lot filled with beautiful perennial gardens, and a meandering walking path flowing through it, this peaceful retreat is a house for all seasons. This lovely home with a country feel boasts a sprawling front porch and an expansive deck with views of the sparkling pond, lush landscape, and in-ground pool. With almost 10,000 square feet of living space, and three acres of land, this has been the destination for high school team parties, neighborhood get-togethers, a garden walk, and even a wedding!
Complete with five bedrooms and five full bathrooms plus two half baths, two-story home with a full finished basement is positioned to highlight the outstanding views from all points. Open the door to a stunning foyer flanked by a formal living room and dining room with gleaming hardwood floors. The generous Kitchen has high end appliances, granite counters, a breakfast bar and an eating area which opens to the screened porch and second staircase. The Family Room, overlooking the sparkling pond and pool, has a wood burning fireplace, and a separate wet bar. A few steps away is the Summer Room, a relaxing retreat, which is an irresistible eight-sided addition overlooking the lush landscape. “It’s just like coming home to vacation” according to the homeowners. Also on the first floor is the office/studio, with built-in cabinets, a wall of windows and French doors.
A bridal staircase leads to five generous bedrooms, loft with built-in work spaces, and a large laundry room. The luxurious Master retreat boasts a fireplace, spiral staircase to a private loft/second office, walk-in closet and spa bath with a double whirlpool tub and large steam shower. A Princess Suite is included in the four additional bedrooms and three additional bathrooms located on this level.
Just when you think that you have seen everything, take a walk to the finished basement where you will find a second family room with a party kitchen and fireplace, surround sound, a craft room, workout area and potential workshop with electrical outlets appropriately placed for tools and workspaces. There is a half bath on this level, as well as access to a full bath which is adjacent to the pool entrance.
One of the most versatile homes we have seen, this house is great for entertaining, but also wonderful for day-to-day living. Just a half mile from Reed-Turner Woodland and Heron Creek Forest Preserve, and within walking distance from historic Long Grove, this wonderful retreat is truly a place to call home. Welcome!
