This must just be the most romantic home in McHenry County. The experience begins with a long driveway that starts at 3 Giant White Oaks, and twists and turns thru a park like yard, past a charming barn over a beautiful stone bridge and up a hill. At the top, the Nantucket style home is surrounded by perennial flower gardens and pastoral countryside. Inside the home is brimming with architectural details that makes this home so special, with custom features and exceptional details and premium quality. This 5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, Estate has been lovingly cared for and the attention to detail shows. The living room features a custom mantle with carvings, a bow front, and leaded glass windows. The adjacent library is entered thru glass pocket doors, and has a bow front wall, a full wall built-in bookcase, and an oak coffered wood ceiling. The dining room has a herringbone oak floor trimmed in three different hardwoods, as well as a bay end wall overlooking the flower garden and yard, and oversized crown molding. There is a wide wrap around front porch. Curved limestone front steps, a very custom railing, and a 3-season porch on the north side that is a favorite spot in the summer. It is lined on its end with two groups of French doors, one of which opens onto the patio. On one side is a natural fireplace, on the other is a bow front wall of windows that line the entire 30' of its length, interrupted only by two support columns. The space is large enough for a seating area around the fireplace on one side and a casual dining space on the other. The room is framed is crown molding and authentic bead ceiling. The home has been so well maintained and has been frequently updated. Within the past few years the kitchen has been updated, the windows replaced with triple glazed Marvin Windows, and the cedar siding has also been updated. The basement is newly finished with a recreation room and every carpenters dream workshop. Basement also includes large carpeted crawl and storm shelter. This year a Grand 8 Foot Tall Front Door made from Quartersawn Oak with Rocky Mountain Hardware was installed. One extremely important feature is that the woodwork throughout the home has been created by a true craftsman, it is unbelievable quality and that you don't see in homes today. The 1300 foot cement driveway is maintenance free with its picturesque Chilton stone limestone bridge and all of the magnificent Oak Trees, pastures and split rail fence that line the property, it's positioned to be screened by neighbors making this quiet and peaceful.
