Step into this charming 5 bed/3.1 bath ranch home on five acres nestled into the woods with access to the DesPlaines River Trail system for trail riding, biking, running, etc. In addition to its new, 4 stall barn (SEE DESCRIPTION BELOW), this property features a gorgeously unique home with an updated kitchen that includes 42" maple cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a separate wet bar area off the kitchen for entertaining. The knotty pine cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors throughout add so much character and Northwoods feel to the home. Be completely wowed by the floor to ceiling two-sided fireplace in the middle of the large great room, providing a cozy atmosphere in the winter. Open the room up to the 14x28 maintenance-free composite deck off the back of the house overlooking the private, tree filled land. Enjoy the spacious rooms and three luxurious baths designed with imported slate heated floors and whirlpool tub in the primary suite. The full English walkout basement is finished with its own private entrance, a full bath, and an option to add a second kitchen with existing gas, electrical and plumbing hook up. The lower level offers plenty of living space for an in-law or au pair suite with approximately 1000 feet of finished space. In addition to the finished space, the lower level also has over 1000 additional square feet of unfinished space for storage or to continue finishing. THE AMAZING BARN/LAND: The charming and thoughtfully designed barn is approximately 7 years old and features 4 stalls. Each stall has sliding stall doors with safety locks and handles, in addition to Dutch doors leading to paddocks. The building has ample tack and equipment areas and a main aisle with mats for safety. The large hay loft is conveniently accessed by a full size staircase and was built to safely store hay above horses' quarters and simplify feed chores and storage. This also serves to keep the barn warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer months. There is a storage closet for vet and other supplies and ample number of electrical outlets conveniently placed throughout the barn. The water spigots are located both inside and outside barn for ease in filling buckets and troughs. The grounds are a dream for the horse lover with five turn out options for rotation and a round pen for riding/training or to use as an additional turnout. Other details include a feed storage shed for safe storage of grain, a run in shed providing shelter for your horses, also allowing for equipment storage with more storage above the run in. The barn has plenty of lighting in and around the barn and plenty of driveway space for trailer storage. For the trail riding enthusiast, enjoy miles of Des Plaines River Trails and the Lake County Forest Preserve, which can be accessed directly from the property, or ride on trails within the approximately five acres.
