Looking for the home of your dreams? Looking for sophisticated design and finishes? Looking for a private location, yet close to town & amenities? Looking for a waterfront home built for year-round enjoyment? Stop looking.....it's all right here. One of the most distinguished properties located in desirable Grayslake where the views alone are worth the price. Add the sweeping panoramas of Highland Lake to the striking interior and no homes remain in comparison. The long extended drive (sealed '20) that puts space and privacy between the entrance and your home, creates your own welcoming haven. Jaw-dropping, fully remodeled home is immaculate in design yet still endearing in original character as owners kept and/or repurposed so many features. After you park in your 6.5 car garage, you can enjoy the views of Highland Lake as you walk up to one of 2 exquisite entrances with custom Alder doors. A heated wrap-around 4 season-front porch is one option, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views plus heated stone/porcelain floors and desirable custom-built-in features to create a useful space immediately upon entry. Multiple(original) refinished double doors flow fantastically into a formal dining room that would be an entertainer's dream. The original floor plan at the rear of the home has been reconfigured and opened up to offer the desirable "open floor plan" concept plus multiple views of the lake and expansive yard. Redesigned eat-in kitchen w/ quartz stone counters, subway tile, 16' sliders w/ lake views, farm-style cast iron sink, and premium Stainless Steel appliances ( 90" sub-zero refrigeration & 60" Thermador double oven & Miele dishwasher) plus remarkable walk-in pantry, massive 11' center island with stools, and plenty of natural light, complete this breathtaking room. An extraordinary built-in 1800's icebox & bar that continues the open flow for entertaining to the Billiards room (with built-in Sonos powered ceiling speakers through-out). This space can easily be converted to a main floor master suite or inlaw arrangement with it's own private entrance. (6th bedroom) Featuring unique beamed (with reclaimed wood) custom ceiling, closet space & private bath with walk-in shower. A cozy family room with large windows is just steps away from the beautiful main entryway. Enjoy quiet time in the enchanting library w/ decorative fireplace and floor-to-ceiling shelving. The formal living room also features an original working fireplace. Heated floors w/ hydronic radiant floors run throughout the entire home, making this not only beautiful but an efficient world unto itself. The master suite overlooks the 110-acre lake plus your private beach, wood pier & firepit. Spacious 20x7 walk-in closet with built-in's, plus a master bath with 7x5 shower, claw foot cast iron slipper tub, and double sinks. Each bedroom has direct access to a full bathroom.
