This beautiful Palladian-style brick home is a must-see for anyone seeking luxury and classic design in a desirable location. Situated on a picturesque 2-acre lot surrounded by lush greenery, this custom-built home offers modern conveniences alongside Roman revival architecture.
As you enter the foyer, the grandeur of this residence is immediately apparent, with a marble floor, circular staircase, and a 2-story faux-painted domed ceiling. The main level boasts 10 ft ceilings, elegant trim and crown moldings, hardwood floors, and architectural molding. The oversized two-story great room features an impressive fireplace and plenty of natural light pouring in, while the formal living room can accommodate a baby grand piano and has a wood-burning fireplace.
The dining room, which can comfortably seat 14+ guests, also has a wood-burning fireplace, making it perfect for large gatherings. A hallway colonnade with a vaulted barrel ceiling and custom faux painting leads to the library, which has three walls of custom wood-stained built-ins, perfect for an in-home office or simply a place to relax and read.
The grand primary bedroom boasts a hand-painted tray ceiling and an intimate sitting area with fireplace, while the spa-like bath includes a Jacuzzi, separate shower, his-and-her vanities and closets. From the primary bedroom, you can enter the solarium, which leads you to an expansive, composite deck to enjoy the view of the lighted trees and backyard. Plenty of land to install swimming pool, tennis court, or sport court.
The well-equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a sub-zero refrigerator/freezer, Viking 6-burner range with griddle, FiveStar hood, two sinks, granite countertops, island seating, wine storage, and European-style Yorktowne cabinetry. To complete the kitchen, there is a large breakfast area for casual dining with a curved wall of glass allowing for an unobstructed view of the backyard.
Upstairs, you will find 5 oversized bedrooms, with a 6th room that can either be used as an additional bedroom, office, playroom, or 2nd gathering room. The rear staircase takes you from this room to the three-car garage, mudroom, and kitchen.
Retreat to the lower level daylight basement with a large recreation room, a bar area, a room that can easily be climatized as a wine cellar, and several storage rooms. There is plenty of space for a billiard table, foosball table, and ping pong. The current half bath was thoughtfully designed with existing plumbing for a shower or tub. There is plenty of room to add an in-home theatre, additional bedroom, and exercise room.
Many of the major mechanical systems have been replaced in recent years, including the roof (2023) grinder pump, water heaters, and HVAC units. The wood trim on the dormers and large front windows was replaced, and the formal living room and dining room windows have interior window tint to prevent fading of the homeowner's carpet and fabrics.
Don't miss your chance to own this stunning home, which offers classic design and modern luxury in the highly sought-after Palatine community.
