    Description

    A nature-lover's paradise, this exceptional executive country estate features an over 5200sf all-brick home, custom-built by noted builder/architect Orren Pickell. Rich in both character and creativity, it offers gracious living and entertaining spaces, a flowing floor plan, and stellar nature views from every room. Extraordinary interior architecture features a two-story-high, octagonal-shaped atrium gathering room at its core - perfect for either an intimate armchair or loveseat seating area by the fireplace hearth, or as a skylit gallery for art and entertaining, with recessed bar nearby. The home flows from this center axis to an elegant dining room and large living room, both with bay windows, and an expansive family room, overlooking the grand terraced paver patio areas beyond. The home is further enhanced by renovations that include a gorgeous gourmet kitchen, with granite, custom cabinetry and top-line stainless appliances, plus a big and beautiful breakfast area with panoramic nature views and patio access. There are also updated baths with granite and other fine appointments, a library/office with built-ins, flooring updates, a newly finished English basement with bath, and much more - plus many rooms newly painted as well. Just move in and enjoy! Outside, the wonders continue with acres of landscaped grounds, beautiful mature trees, a fenced vegetable garden area, indoor/outdoor kennel - and the 2012 addition of an architecturally-notable, deluxe multi-use barn for 5 horses, with paddocks and outdoor arena, all superbly sited on the approximately 5 acre property, with privacy screening from the home. Don't ride? This high-quality, heated two-story structure can easily be repurposed as a car collector haven or hobbyist workshop with ample two-level use/storage. There is also a two-story high, hidden-from-view, outdoor covered storage area for a large boat or RV....In addition to the main drive off Meadowoods, the estate also has a convenient service drive off Old School Road....Ideally located for peace, privacy and quiet enjoyment, the large corner property is bordered by mature woods and is only a block from hundreds of acres of Lake County Forest Preserve groomed trials for riding, biking and hiking. The trails extend for miles and miles in three directions!... Located in the Libertyville HS district with a Libertyville mailing address, the home is physically in the Village of Metttawa. Known for its bucolic surrounds and focus on nature preservation, Mettawa has reasonable taxes and excellent fiscal management which results most years in village tax refund to residents! This year the owner of this home received over a $4000 refund! ... Whether seeking a gorgeous country estate, an equestrian property of note just a short walk from the Forest Preserve trails, or a home with ready-made structure for car collecting, hobbies or recreational retreat...this estate has it all, in one of the prettiest and most peaceful country settings anywhere. Also key is the convenience of stores, schools, restaurants and transportation just minutes away. Only 25 minutes to O'Hare Airport and about 45 minutes to downtown Chicago- so close, but yet so far! This is a very special home, offering a rare and wonderful lifestyle in the idyllic setting that is Mettawa - a true country oasis nestled between the towns of Libertyville and Lake Forest. Close to Lake Michigan and the Chain o' Lakes, too!
