Property Description

Cottage-style Manor on private, wooded lot in Wildwood, Edgebrook's premier community, Thoughtfully-designed to welcome family and friends to gather in grand, open, beautiful spaces while also offering private, quiet rooms for work, learning and solitude. Boasting over 7,000 square feet of amazing, living space on a large private lot, this home is an architectural haven for the most discriminating homeowner. With a gracious and open floor plan that defines spaces while allowing them to seamlessly flow and interact harmoniously, this impressive 6 bedrooms, 5 and 1/2 bath home features cedar- shake siding and stone walkways, wrap-around porch, double-door entrance, and a gracious foyer that will welcome you home again and again. The 1st floor boasts 10-ft ceilings highlighting the architectural delights of coffered and tray designs, large cased openings, custom wood paneling, gorgeous trimwork, and large banks of windows with plantation shutters above gleaming hardwood floors. The open floor plan features an impressive, oversized great room 25x16 and gracious dining room 26x12 that are flanked by a large double-sided fireplace. Both rooms have beautiful custom built-ins for ever-needed storage space. Sound system has surround sound in family room with additional speakers in kitchen and porch for entertaining. Looking out over these family spaces is the quintessential family gathering room - the incredible chef's kitchen with a 10-ft marble island, stainless steel appliances, Wolf 6-burner stovetop and custom kitchen cabinetry. An adjoining breakfast room with oversized, upholstered booth is perfect for fun, casual family dinners. Tucked in a corner of the kitchen is a large, custom-built desk designed with plenty of storage. A wall of glass, french doors from the kitchen leads to a screened porch and secluded backyard with large brick patio and stone-surround firepit. In a separate wing, a 1st floor guest master suite (or office) looks out over the pergola-covered porch and is complete with oversized windows, full bath and walk-in closet. The 1st floor also includes a beautiful, tranquil sitting room or office with coffered ceilings and recessed glass doors for privacy, a powder room, and a large mud room with custom built-ins connected by a portico to the 2.5 car garage. The 2nd floor does not disappoint! A large master bedroom suite with vaulted, beamed ceiling, fireplace, built-in cabinetry, and window seat accompanied by master bath with separate sinks and large walk-in shower and walk-in closet. A true corner office lined with windows and built- in bookshelves connects to the master bedroom. Completing the 2 nd floor are 4 additional bedrooms (1 is en suite), a hall bathroom with separate shower/toilet room, double linen closet, and an extra-large laundry room with built-in cabinetry and laundry sink. Full walkable attic for additional storage. The basement is yet another entire floor of living space. With 9-ft ceilings, it manages to be simultaneously both grand and cozy. Huge rec room equipped with surround sound speaker system has plenty of room for everyone to gather and watch their favorite movie or game. Large bonus room can be used as office, exercise room, guest room or au pair living quarters. Bathroom with large walk-in shower and built-in storage is perfect for guests. A separate "secret" playroom for the little ones is built into the eaves and is connected to a large utility room with sink, perfect for crafts. Huge storage space will accommodate all your storage needs. Located in the award-winning Wildwood International Baccalaureate school district and just 1 block from the entrance to the North Branch forest preserve, with 20 miles of biking and hiking trails, walking to Metra and local shopping/restaurants, this secluded city gem must be seen to be believed.
