Welcome to the gated entrance of this exquisite Prairie-style country estate designed by Chicago's Mark Zinni who built this unique property to be one with nature and endless room to roam away from the hustle and bustle. Accessible by a one-hour drive from downtown Chicago, or the last stop on the Union Pacific West Metra Train Line, or by helicopter landing on the private helipad. Several private airports are also within easy driving distance. The main house built with fond-du-lac stone is set on an expansive 84+ acres and has over 7500 square feet of living space, just in the main house alone. Impeccably maintained, this estate has everything needed for entertaining, working, relaxing, horseback riding, and corporate events. Filled with vast windows, clerestory architectural details, and unique skylights, this light-filled retreat is a home for all seasons. As you walk through the home filled with flagstone and all hardwood floors, you will recognize the ultimate quality and detail at every turn. The home's main level interior features include a light-filled, fully equipped modern kitchen, a second catering kitchen, and ample pantry options. Downstairs, there is a large wine cellar, cocktail area, and wine-tasting room. And for all-ages entertaining, enjoy skee ball, billiards, poker, ping pong, and a personal 12-seat screening room theater. Also included is a fitness room. The sleeping wings of the home are extremely private and include a primary suite with a two-story stone fireplace, spa-like dual stone baths, and dressing rooms. Beyond the main house, you are guided by herringbone stone pathways that flow all around this lush landscape.
