Understated elegance, private sanctuary and refined luxury all define this exquisite retreat in the rich countryside of Barrington Hills. Unrivaled in its pristine setting, this 46-acre estate showcases a 7-acre private stocked lake, primary French Country home, guest villa, custom barn, private groomed trails, orchard, meadow, pasture, and is totally surrounded by nature preserves. A private gate opens to a paver driveway which leads to the custom main home, perched among the towering Hickory, Oak, Cherry, Sycamore and Pine trees. The grand foyer overlooks the 7-acre lake, stunning tiered bluestone patios, koi pond, waterfall and lush grounds. The European-inspired home welcomes all with a two-story great room with floor to ceiling windows, limestone fireplace and breathtaking views. There's a formal two-story dining room, gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances, sunny breakfast room, atrium, and a two-story library with bookshelves and fireplace. The main floor master suite has a tray ceiling, private balcony overlooking the lake, spacious dressing room, and a hotel-chic bath with spa/steam shower, jetted tub and radiant heat. Richly appointed throughout, with Venetian plaster walls, Italian travertine floors, Alder hardwood, crown molding, decorative leaded glass, 10-foot ceilings, 8-foot doors, and integrated sound system. There's another bedroom and full bath on the main floor and three bedrooms upstairs, one ensuite and two with a shared full bathroom. The sunlit walk out lower level has radiant heat and offers additional flexibility: a comfortable family room with fireplace, game room, generous bar, office, gym and spa area opening to a bluestone patio and the inspiring yard. There's an attached three-car heated garage. The luxurious guest home boasts a large great room, kitchen, bedroom and full bath, private deck and its own heated 2-car garage. The lake is stocked with bass and catfish, and has an island where the pine trees are illuminated at night. There's a pier for the paddle boards, kayaks and swimming. The three-stall barn has another two-car heated garage with ten-foot doors and is architecturally designed to match the main residence. This stately sanctuary is ideal for families, corporate retreats and a harbor from mainstream life. The grounds offer two miles of hiking/riding trails which can be linked to the 150 miles of Barrington Hills horseback riding trails. There's room for pastures, bee keeping, animals, and a helicopter pad. This private haven offers a place to retreat and also to lavishly entertain, just 45 miles from downtown Chicago and less than 30 minutes to O'Hare International Airport.
