YOU'VE FOUND THE ONE! Break away from the ordinary with a one-of-a-kind home where the land is just as breathtaking as the house. Architecturally stunning Sebern build on nearly 1.6 acres of wooded land, backing to a tranquil creek. This house is a RARE FIND that feels like a private oasis while having unbeatable in-town conveniences such as city water/sewer and a central location - just ONE mile to picturesque downtown Algonquin, THREE miles to the expansive Algonquin Commons outdoor shopping mall, 10 minutes to Cary Metra station connecting to the heart of Chicago, and SO MUCH MORE! No expense was spared in the thoughtful design of this regal home... Upon entering the GRAND foyer boasting triple crown molding, you're met with a functional open floorplan, Brazilian hardwood flooring, timeless custom drapes & paint, and tons of natural light. DECADENT built-in speakers on the main floor (including the deck!) and dimmable lights throughout the house. DETAILED touches like coordinated light fixtures tie the foyer, formal living, and formal dining rooms together, while the formal areas are accented by wainscot paneling. ELEGANT tray ceiling in the formal dining room, PLUS entertainment-ready butler's pantry to the side. DAZZLING two-story family room adorned with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a wall of windows overlooking the magical outside. Adjoining the family room is the kitchen ~ perfect layout for hosting! GOURMET kitchen is a chef's dream, displaying high-end granite countertops, a large center island with seating, a professional gas range & double oven, a generous coffee/wine bar, a closet pantry with custom shelving, and a breakfast nook with table space that exits to the deck. STATELY private office touts more wainscoting, built-in storage, a coffered ceiling, and an en suite bathroom ~ versatile enough to function as a first-floor bedroom, an in-law suite, or whatever suits YOUR needs. Coordinated lighting fixtures once again provide a SEAMLESS flow between the breakfast nook, kitchen, and office spaces, while the laundry room and a half bath complete the main level. Upstairs, ALL bedrooms flaunt spacious interiors and vaulted ceilings, while MANY feature lavish extras like built-in bookshelves and various walk-in closets. EXQUISITE owner's retreat also showcases a tray ceiling, oversized closet with custom shelving, and a LUXURIOUS private bath with dramatic travertine tile, his & hers vanities, a jetted soaking tub, and a step-in double shower with seating. IMPRESSIVE 2nd bedroom also has a private en suite bath, while 3rd bedroom has direct access to a bathroom that is accessible to the 4th bedroom through the hallway. MASSIVE walkout basement ready for your finishing touches, with another fireplace and electrical & plumbing already in place! THREE-CAR attached side-load garage is an enthusiast's wishlist, with epoxy flooring, steel cabinets, and a separate 220V electrical panel. MASTERFUL landscaping with various plants and flowers that flourish throughout the year, and GORGEOUS backyard that is peaceful and shaded by mature trees. ENDLESS spots for outdoor enjoyment, including a huge composite deck, paver patio, screened three-season room, and oversized firepit - even a nature trail awaits RIGHT at your fingertips within the well-established and friendly neighborhood! RECENT UPDATES include a brand new smart sprinkler system, large-capacity high-efficiency water softener, radon mitigation system, and fresh paint throughout much of the home. Don't miss this UNIQUE opportunity to truly have it all... WELCOME HOME!!!
