Property Description

Seller and buyer represented by Daniel Timm, Baird & Warner. You just found a special place; a sprawling, voluminous, mod, and thoroughly updated mid-century ranch perched on a high bank (No flood risk, and no flood insurance required) alongside the DesPlaines River Greenway with 2.8 acres of land, mature shade trees, and views that defy description. The neighborhood is a hidden gem, one of those spots that people didn't know existed until they visit. But it's here, removed from the day-to-day bustle and yet close to historic downtown Libertyville, Lake Minear, your commute (and 31.4 miles of trails that wind through lush forest and 12 forest preserves). ********* The home itself dates originally to the 1950's and has been expanded significantly. The basic details are 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, plus an office. It's pattern is that of an "L" that sits at the eastern edge of the property. Rows of windows along this low-slung gem look out to nearly two acres of fenced yard, mature trees, and the greenway below. The northern wing of the home is capped with a vaulted family room with bar, exercise area and three season room. You'll spend lots of time relaxing and entertaining there.There's a huge deck off this area, and a monumental fire pit just beyond that overlooks the river. Closer to the front of the home are the original living and dining rooms, featuring a row of windows overlooking a bluestone patio and the land. This wing of the home also features a 4th bedroom with en-suite bath (perfect guest quarters), and an office with French doors. The center of the home features a large kitchen and eating area with center island, mud room, laundry, pantry and garage access. Appliances are all newer stainless and the granite is gorgeous. ********* The southern wing of the home is situated along a long corridor with rows of windows and built in storage. In addition to the master suite, there are two more bedrooms and a full bath. Superb views for all. The master suite is at the far end of the wing, and features a tastefully renovated bath, walk-in closet with custom organizers, and a large deck. It's a retreat within a retreat. A resort within a resort. ********* Other features include dog run, separate 2 1/2 car garage (4 1/2 cars total) with 10 foot ceilings for tools and toys, and ownership of land that actually crosses the river and includes bottom land for hiking, camping and fishing. Much of the land does not require mowing. Additional details: The acreage the home sits on is high above flood plain, as the property features a riverbank of about 15 feet. The home has had very nearly $300,000 in updates since the current owners purchased in 2014 that include roof, electrical, siding, HVAC, windows, baths, landscape, & flooring. A transformation.. Award-winning schools are D70 Elementary (Copeland) and Middle (Highland), and D128 High School (Libertyville High).
