At the end of an idyllic drive down Shady Lane stands an elegant private estate, that is waiting for you. Nestled among towering trees and sitting on over 3 acres of land, complete with lush gardens, a babbling brook, lighted tennis or paddleball courts and a seasonal outdoor ice-skating pond, this over 5600 square foot home offers the perfect respite in our present need to stay at home atmosphere. While grand in stature, the uniqueness of this home is that it also offers total first floor living. Complete with a three story foyer there is also a cozy living room that features an antique fireplace mantel and gorgeous views of the surrounding forest. The first floor adjacent bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and walk in closets, perfect for those unable to use stairs. Just off the main foyer is an elegant dining room that allows easy access via a butler's pantry to a newly renovated kitchen. The kitchen has all of the amenities a chef could wish for, including high end appliances, two wide center islands, great lighting, and two separate pantries for storage. This kitchen is not only elegant but extremely functional as well. The breakfast room overlooks the rear grounds, tennis courts and is adjacent to a very spacious screened in porch and outside patio. The laundry room is huge and also doubles as a work from home office space with a built in desk and cabinets. Perhaps the best feature of the first floor is the massive family room with beamed ceilings, a two storied masonry fireplace, great windows, and ample room for a game table and bookcases. There are two staircases leading up to the second floor. There you will find five large bedrooms, 4 full baths, a playroom and additional loft spaces in several of the rooms. The master bedroom has a gabled ceiling with beams, a built in antique fireplace, a private library and music room. There are two large walk in closets that lead down the hallway to the master bathroom. The master bathroom has great lighting from many windows and a skylight. It also features double vanities, with separate whirlpool tub and shower areas. Do not miss the lower level with all of the "must haves" needed to quarantine in style. There is a large craft/home schooling area, an exercise room complete with a large steam room, full bathroom, pool table area, wet bar, tv area, and a practice golf area. The two storied heated garage provides space for five cars and presently has a modified indoor basketball court. Outside there is an additional two car garage for extra storage, cars or outdoor toys. The additional amenities this wonderful home offers are zoned HVAC systems, many newer mechanical systems, and in-ground sprinklers. One of the best kept secrets this home holds is that it is located within the Hinsdale Elementary School District and Hinsdale Central High School. World class shopping and major roadways are easily accessible. This is truly an exceptional home.
