A PEACEFUL, PRIVATE RUSTIC RETREAT on 4+ acres off Bull Valley Rd. Head down a meandering, picturesque drive to breathtaking views of nature and tranquility. Colorado vibes best describe the feel throughout the generous 6 bdrms./4.5 bath cedar A-frame home, with it’s sprawling decks on either side, surrounded by trees, a pond and nature at it’s finest. The casual interior has great architectural interest with exposed beams, 3-story masonry fireplace, barn doors, soaring cedar family room ceilings, and sprawling nature views from every window. The vaulted cedar family room is at the center with its floor to ceiling windows and masonry hearth. The large open kitchen and dining area are just on the other side of the fireplace and have views from back deck. The unique set up of this home, with each bedroom having a view and its own loft (space could be used for play, study or add’l sleeping area ) could lend itself to a perfect retreat home. It also has an “in-law” or guest en-suite that is part of the home, with a separate entrance and it’s own kitchen, living room, bedroom and full bath. The 2nd level of the home is a bedroom with a sitting area/ fireplace and its own spacious loft . This entire space is SO versatile. It could also be a beautiful studio, office, fitness area … limited only to your imagination. A selection of versatile rooms could be adapted to suit your needs and you could accommodate guests or a multigenerational family with no problem. A very generous finished walk-out basement overlooks the back yard, and offers an add’l 1,600 sq. ft. of finished space and TONS of storage. A masonry fireplace at its center, it also boasts a large recreation area with a bar, a craft room, and another large finished flex space with half bath. Enjoy a personal sanctuary by day with a canoe and pedal boat at the pond, or by night under the stars, with smores at multiple fire pits on the property. The home feels like you are far away from it all, yet truly is minutes to McHenry/Crystal Lake shopping, schools, Metra train, Northwestern hospital, amenities, parks, golf courses, the Fox River and so much more. The land is adjacent to property owned and maintained by the Land Conservancy of McHenry County.
