What a show piece this is! A small, stocked pond is nestled near the entrance to the property, setting the tone for what is truly an amazing recreational estate. As you come up the hill on the asphalt driveway, a 5,500 square foot home with attached two-car garage is revealed to you from amidst the mature oaks. Just up the hill from the home is a 30×60 heated and insulated auxiliary garage, perfect for storing your “weekend driver”, and tractor, mowers, and other equipment for keeping the grounds in top condition.
You’ll feel at home the moment you walk through the door of this custom built, timberframed masterpiece. From the entry foyer, you can see through the red oak staircase, directly into the great room which has an impressive stone (gas) fireplace. The beautifully designed kitchen has a large island with seating, and an adjacent breakfast area for table and chairs. Kitchen come complete with stainless refrigerator, Thermador Professional series oven/range and exhaust hood. This entire space has an open flow, and gorgeous views of the exposed timbers supporting the walls and vaulted ceiling, above. A perfect layout for entertaining large numbers of guests, yet warm and comfortable enough for everyday family use. An adjacent dining room is a formal retreat for those more intimate meals. Beyond the great room fireplace is a spacious three-season room, with walls of windows with views overlooking the landscaped yard and part of the mature oak timber. The master suite is complete with jacuzzi tub, tile shower, and his and her walk-in closets. A second bedroom on the main level is set apart for privacy, and has easy access to an adjacent guest bathroom. Above the great room and kitchen is a sizable loft area, which serves as a charming office study, but could easily be converted into additional bedroom space. A good-sized composite deck overlooks the backyard, with access doors from both the great room and three-season room. The main floor laundry, with appliances included, sits just off the hallway that leads to the attached garage.
Downstairs, the finished living space of the walk-out basement leaves nothing to be desired. A huge family room offers plenty of space for a large sectional couch, or perhaps theatre seating, with room left over for a game table, or workout area. Pass through the adjacent billiard room, as you head to fetch a drink or snacks from the second complete kitchen. Down a hallway, you find two more very comfortable bedrooms, with spacious closets, and the third full bath.
A private rock road leads through the hardwood timber, chocked full of deer and other wildlife, to the back end of the property where an amazing water-front guest cabin overlooks the stocked 2.5 acre pond. This cabin is completely off grid, but has LP generator with batter bank, to comfortably keep power supplied for all of your social gatherings and nights away from home. A 7’x30′ screened-in porch lets you be part of whatever is happening outdoors, without any bother of bugs or need for sunblock. It’d be hard to imagine a more pristine setting for a family gathering! You’ll have to see it to fully appreciate the care taken in laying out this wonderful, one-of-a-kind estate. The memories you will make here will last for several lifetimes.
Located between Galesburg and Monmouth, IL, and just 2.7 miles north of Cameron, IL on 140th St.
