Paradise property! Surrounded by forest preserves, this 2.49 acre lot has mature trees, in-ground pool, beautiful gardens, open green space and a 1-1/2 story home. Two additional buildings (detached and wood heated garage/workshop that can fit 3-4 cars and shed.) The current owners have lovingly and meticulously maintained this property. They have also implemented several environmentally responsible and efficient systems, including a passive solar system for the pool heater/filter and added wood burning heat inserts to the two fireplaces located in the house. So many opportunities to live off the land with 3 apple trees, pear tree, raspberry patch and several large gardens. Plus there are hundreds of beautiful perennials and over 34 different species of trees, including two rare native locust trees. The surrounding Timber Ridge Forest Preserve, offers 2 miles of paths for walking, biking, horseback riding or cross country skiing and is a trailhead for the Great Western Trail and Illinois Prairie Path--there is access to the paths from the back of the property. All of this peacefulness and beauty, but in a great location close to everything--schools, shopping, restaurants, transportation (including West Chicago Metra train,) golf and more! This is an excellent opportunity to own a private property with relaxed and peaceful living, yet be conveniently located to amenities. Horses and bow and arrow hunting allowed on the property. Also, a wonderful location for entertaining...there are so many options!
