Your north shore retreat awaits you! An amazing backyard oasis features a sapphire resembling in-ground pool and spa. Take a deep breath as you inhale the fresh & clean air of the apron of huge mature trees that surround you. Any daily stresses you have will be melted away. Situated on just over 3 acres, it’s hard to believe that this cape cod home has over 5500 square feet of interior space. Built in 1960 with a large addition in 1998, this home is solidly constructed featuring a concrete base floor. Other fantastic home attributes include: an enormous English style library with 14-15 foot cathedral style ceilings, a stone fireplace, and a full wall of book shelves with sliding ladder. This home has an attached 4-car garage with a fifth garage service door, & 3 working & hardly ever used fireplaces. An open concept kitchen with Brookhaven solid wood cabinetry, professional stainless steel appliances that include: a 6 burner-Wolf cook-top with a pot-filler above, extra wide Sub-Zero fridge, Thermador double over and warming drawer, and Miele dishwasher. The main floor is really the perfect living and entertaining space with a formal living & dining room, an office, a pantry area or staging area with a second fridge, a wet bar area, a sun-room dining area that can host twelve or more people and a family room off the kitchen. An incredible amount of recent upgrades have taken place in the past 10 years include: new boilers, new roof, new hvac, new Space-pak, driveway sealed in 2016, new water reservoir and bladder tanks for water pressure, complete restoration of swimming pool and spa, two new 50 gallon water heaters, re-stained decks and a complete new front door and sun room deck doors that cost over $26,000. Some of the best schools in the state that include the small classroom size Bannockburn-a Blue Ribbon school in 2019, and of course that feeds into the well acclaimed Deerfield High School. Montessori school 5 minutes away is another option. Just 5-15 minutes to everything like grocery-Heinen’s and Mariano’s 10-12 minutes away, entertainment, downtown Deerfield, Bannockburn-the new remodeled Mid-town gym that is coming soon, Costco-10 minutes, less than 10 minutes to Northbrook and 15-20 minutes to other north shore towns and 20 minutes to O’Hare. This is truly a great opportunity to enjoy and relax and the perfect getaway home.
