Property Description

French country living in Inverness! A circular drive leads up to this gracious marble estate built as a French chateau in desirable McIntosh. Proudly set on 2.1 acres, this 5-bedroom, 6000 sq. ft. home delights with hilltop views of a private pond accentuated by a gushing water fountain, Salt Creek, private nature path, and meticulously maintained grounds. Its unique, priceless exterior is made of Danby white marble easily competing with the style and grace of the Taj Mahal while being honored with awards for its incomparable and timeless beauty. As you enter the home, you are immediately impressed by the elegant, 2-story foyer with custom Carrara marble floors and a winding wrought iron baluster staircase that directs the eye upward to a beautiful crystal chandelier. Natural light pours in from all directions filling the home with extraordinary beauty and grace. From the foyer, a broad, gallery wall hallway with marble floors, tall windows, and custom millwork leads to a large, formal living room with a bronze and marble fireplace; hardwood floors; and 9-ft, floor-to-ceiling windows on all 3 sides overlooking the pond and side yard. French doors from the hallway also open to a paneled, coffered ceiling den/family room complete with a fireplace, wet bar, built-in bookcases, and windows lining the back of the room. On the foyer's opposite side is a stunning dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows, crystal chandelier, wainscotting, and access to a kitchen with solid wood cabinetry. Adjacent to one side of the kitchen is a breakfast room with tranquil views of the patio and backyard. On the opposite side is a large, multipurpose room with closets, 2nd powder room, back staircase, access to the garage, and option for a first-floor laundry. The second-floor features hardwood floors throughout, 5 generous bedrooms, and 4.5 bathrooms. The master suite is ideally located at one end of the home with views of the pond and includes a large dressing room lined with closets and two bathrooms. One bathroom also offers access to a second bedroom that would be ideal as an extension of the master suite, nursery, or office. On the opposite side of the house are the remaining 3 bedrooms, with 2 out of 3 being ensuite. The fifth bedroom features a powder room and washer/dryer connections, offering a second-floor laundry room option. Ideal for casual gatherings, the handsome lower level is fully finished in varnished pine paneling and Roman brick and features a recreation room with custom kitchenette and marble fireplace; exercise/game room; wine closet; 6th possible bedroom; 1.5 bathrooms. 2.5 car garage! Scenic and private fenced yard with expansive patio! Top-rated William Fremd school district! Near Metra, shopping, entertainment, restaurants, highway, and O'Hare!
