Property Description

Stunning and spacious 2 story custom brick, stone and cedar home with walk-out basement, 3+ car garage/shop with access doors to rear yard. 6,165 sq ft of living space situated on a massive 1.75 acre private lot with approximately 1/2 of which is a maintenance free prairie, creates a feeling of being out in the country. This picturesque property with mature trees and landscaping is all within 4 minutes of the Metra station, restaurants, and all that downtown Palatine has to offer. A carefully planned addition was added to the home. Besides welcoming curb appeal, it created a harmonious blend of Craftsman details and classic charm, while maximizing space and functionality. Since then, countless improvements were completed. Most recently in June of 2023, a completely new roof including Velux skylights, gutter guards and downspouts was installed. First floor features a kitchen with breakfast bar that is open to the dining room, eating area, family room and it is connected to a large and stunning cedar post and beam screened porch with raised deck that overlooks a serene and private backyard. A natural prairie at the rear portion of the lot creates a feeling of being out in the country. The remainder of the first floor includes a living room with a masonry fireplace, a flex area with a desk alcove, a separate oversized laundry room and a mud room with a 1/2 bath, closet, bench and hanging storage. There are two bedrooms and a full bath which can also be utilized as a private suite by closing the pocket door. Second floor features a master suite with a large bathroom, both with stunning and private views of the tree lined yard. There's also a large closet area, sitting room, multipurpose room and 534 sq ft of walk-in attic storage. Two more oversized bedrooms, one with an attached 1/2 bath and a full hall bath. One of the highlights of this home is the fabulous walk-out basement to a large flagstone patio, a rare feature that enhances both living space and lifestyle. The basement is finished to perfection, offering a recreation room, kitchenette with full size fridge and stove. A huge office/6th bedroom is adjacent to a half bath that is roughed in for a shower. A versatile flex room, separated by glass doors, includes another masonry fireplace that can be transformed into a play room, home theater or exercise room. With direct walk-out access to the patio and backyard, you can seamlessly extend your living and entertaining areas outdoors, creating the perfect setting for barbecues, gatherings, and fun activities. Conveniently located, this home offers easy access to essential amenities, schools, parks, swimming pools, and major transportation routes, making daily life a breeze while still maintaining a sense of peaceful seclusion.
