Property Description

Treasure found! An architectural delight, this one-of-a-kind country home was designed around a historic barn and silo, and offers comfortable and creative living worthy of Architectural Digest! The gracious abode is nestled on over 5 very private acres, adjacent hundreds acres of conservancy. The beautiful grounds feature a stocked pond, paver terraces, gazebo, expansive lawns and wood-fenced paddocks. This special property also includes a welcoming guesthouse, a barn for 3+ horses with dry lot and grassy turn-outs, a chicken coop, and workshop. A short stroll away is the expansive Lake County Forest Preserve trail system, where one can hike, bike or ride horses for miles and miles amidst the beauty of nature....Main-house highlights include a high-ceilinged Great Room with fireplace, a country kitchen with raised hearth fireplace, a large sunroom with hot tub, first floor primary bedroom with patio overlooking pond and gazebo, another first floor bedroom and hall bath - and two architecturally fun and functional round bedrooms in the expanded silo, with dedicated full bath there as well. Across the courtyard, the charming guesthouse with front porch has its own Great Room - with vaulted skylit ceiling, fieldstone accents, pot belly stove and queen-sized Murphy bed. It also offers a small kitchen, eating area, and full bath. A front porch swing adds to the enjoyment....The adjacent barn has large stalls for 3 horses (up to 5 horses allowed here), a tack room with hot water spigot, and hay storage in the connected garage.....Don't have horses? The barn could easily convert for more garage or workshop space....Flexible, unique and simply beautiful, this nature lover's paradise is located in the bucolic Village of Mettawa in the Libertyville HS district (Libertyville mailing address), a country oasis situated in between Lake Forest and Libertyville - close to everything, but yet so far. Lake County taxes are reasonable here, but also note that Mettawa residents can further enjoy the additional benefit of a significant property tax rebate; contact Village for details.
