Imagine living on a private lake, surrounded by nature! Set on a 1+ acre lot, this custom home offers resort-like living with the convenience, security, and recreational amenities of a gated community in the popular Rondout Elementary/Middle School and Libertyville High School Districts. Clad in stone and stucco with a cedar shake roof, this meticulously maintained French Normandy-style home has panoramic lake views from nearly every window. Finely finished, enjoy 10-11 foot ceilings, huge windows, 3.5" American walnut hardwood floors, arched doorways, recessed lighting, 2 wood-burning fireplaces, and an attached 3-car garage. A cook's dream, the highly upgraded eat-in kitchen is outfitted with top-quality Brookhaven cabinetry, high-end stainless appliances, an island with breakfast bar seating, and a built-in desk. A mudroom offers direct access to the home's attached three-car garage. There are 3 bedrooms on the upper level including a luxurious primary suite with a vaulted ceiling, a balcony, dual baths (one with a whirlpool tub and the other with a steam shower), and spacious walk-in closets. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath. A 4th bedroom and bath on this level have been framed and are ready to be built out if desired. Other features include a laundry room with a morning kitchen with a sink, microwave, and refrigerator. Also offering lake views, the lower level is home to another bedroom, an office, a rec room, and a full bath with sauna. Doors open out onto a beautiful paver patio. The 1,200 sqft unfinished portion of this level includes mechanicals and generous storage; it could easily be finished as a home theater, exercise room, and/or wine cellar. The home includes a shaft for the future installation of a full-size passenger elevator. Alternatively, the space could be turned into closets on every level, or as an alternative entry to a 4th upstairs bedroom. ******** Lucky Lake is a private gated community with 14 homes, 23-acres of common area including a park with a covered picnic area and firepit, a playground, tennis courts and hiking trails, and a 10-acre lake that offers swimming, sailing, paddle boarding, canoeing, and non-motorized boating. It is adjacent to Lake County's Middle Fork Savanna Forest Preserve and offers easy access to the Des Plaines River Trail and Greenway. Herons, egrets, and many other species of birds, White Tailed deer, River Otters, Red and Gray fox, and turtles abound. The Knollwood Golf Club and top-rated equestrian boarding and training facilities are close by. While it is very quiet and private within the Lucky Lake community, this super convenient location offers easy access to amazing shopping including Costco, Sunset Foods, Mariano's, Whole Foods, H-Mart, and Heinin's. The Tri-state Tollway, US 41, and the Lake Forest Metra Station are also close by.
