Property Description

(PRICE REDUCED)-Nestled among the rolling hills and timber of Northwest Illinois, this custom-designed, amenity-filled, peaceful, and well-maintained retreat awaits discovery. This exceptional home began as a personal residence and refuge of a well-known antique collector in the region. Today it is a perfect place to raise a family, enjoy as a rural homestead, or a stunning executive get-away in quiet Northwest Illinois. On display in every room are quality highlights of oak and handcut slate flooring, exceptional stained glass windows by artist Thomas O’Shaughnessy (O’Shaughnessy created the stained glass masterpieces of Old St. Patrick’s Church on W. Adams Street, Chicago), reclaimed antique doors boasting colorful stained glass, and specially designed bathrooms appointed in stone and slate in the classic styles. In addition to being a peaceful place new owners would want to come to come home to, this property is a wildlife hotspot. Ideally located between Quality Deer Management, low pressure areas and among naturally rolling topography, this parcel creates highly trafficked areas and pinchpoints for trophy whitetail, turkey, bobcats, and small game. Every day multiple species of wildlife visit the lawn, stroll through the paths in the timber, and provide a personal park-like experience throughout changing seasons.

This one-of-a-kind property offers unexpected amenities for comfort, tranquillity, and entertaining. Centered in the spacious great room is a large limestone fireplace reaching from floor to ceiling. The accents of antique stained glass windows in every room and building bring touches of sophistication and color. Exposed timber beams in vaulted ceilings add rustic tones while hardwood floors throughout compliment the chateau themes. Artistically constructed bathrooms and large master bedroom set this home apart from the crowd. Three bedrooms, two baths. Blacktop driveway. Recreational areas. Hundreds of groomed hostas and multiple flower beds. Paver surrounded fire pit. Multiple outbuildings. Separate, carpeted, single bedroom, guest cabin. Concrete floor, exposed barn timber pavilion with woodstove. Heated workshop in garage.
A detailed and comprehensive list of improvements and maintenance history are available. Economical operational costs (electric use averaging less than $50/month and high efficiency propane furnace) make this a great candidate for second home, hunting retreat, investment for vacation rental, or a cost-effective residence.

Located conveniently just off Highway 52/64 and near conveniences of town and entertainment.

An adjacent property of five acres is available for purchase with separate well, separate garages and sheds, blacktop driveway and cul de sac. This additional acreage is an excellent building site, suitable candidate for shop / business location, or RV location / storage. Adjacent property is desirable corner lot location and ideal addition to making a single-tract, single-owner legacy property.

Property is agent owned.
