If you aren't interested in cookie-cutter subdivision houses, then you will just love this home! This was the original farmhouse located on an expansive property before other homes were built in the surrounding area. But this is not your average farmhouse by far! This truly unique home blends old world elegance with modern, sophisticated updates that offer ultimate conveniences and a warm and cozy ambiance. You'll find gleaming hardwood floors, bay windows that bathe the home with natural light, an expansive kitchen with beautiful white cabinets, granite countertops, top of the line stainless steel appliances, high ceiling with striking lighting, an island with seating and adjacent breakfast room. Off the kitchen is the mud room with sink and storage space that leads to the 2nd back porch. The formal living room with fireplace and dining room are perfect to gather family and friends for special occasions. The family room also has an inviting fireplace and ample room for casual entertaining. The breathtaking sunroom, with knotted pine ceiling, is surrounded by windows that provide a 360 view of the mature trees and landscaping that adds unsurpassed beauty and privacy to the room. A gorgeous wood paneled home office on the first floor provides an ideal remote workspace. The grand master bedroom suite is extra spacious with a large sitting area, a modern bathroom with double vanities, granite counters, a large shower and soaking jetted tub. The other three bedrooms on the second floor are all bright and cheerful with enough space for a homework desk. There's also a huge bonus room on the 3rd floor with knotted pine and skylights. This would make a perfect play and or exercise room. The 5th bedroom with full bath is accessible through a private entrance that leads up to a skylighted room with views of luscious trees that makes an ideal "treehouse" guest suite or nanny quarters. The basement has a finished den area for watching TV or playing video games, with ample room for a table for snacks or playing board games. That's not all! Wait until you see the huge "man or woman cave" space above the 3 car detached garage (an additional 2-car garage on the property.) It has a high ceiling, with recessed lighting, plus natural light from multiple windows! Use this as your creative space for writing, painting, sewing, or whatever hobby you enjoy. Then enjoy the quiet solitude of lounging on the back porch watching the beauty of the 4 seasons displayed on your beautiful 2-acre wooded property. Enjoy nature to the fullest as this home has direct access to the gorgeous hiking/biking trails of the Grassy Lake Flint Creek Forest preserve. Truly a remarkable property that is a must see!
