A private estate setting of over 7 acres introduces this magnificent Stanley Anderson home, fully remodeled and ready for a new owner. With driveways off of Wilmot or Sunset, the property is like a pastoral paradise, complete with a built-in pool, tennis court, and completely restored barn. Fully remodeled with a stunning new kitchen, and all new bathrooms, the home offers over 5900 square feet, and includes 4 bedrooms, 4.3 baths, a total of 8 fireplaces, a 3 car garage and a Lord and Burnham greenhouse.
Highlights include a state-of-the-art kitchen opening to the breakfast and family rooms, bedrooms with fireplaces, and bathrooms adorned in marble. A handsome wood paneled library with fireplace is a richly appointed retreat for a home office or private study. The screened porch located off of the living room gives you a place to enjoy the fresh air while taking in the beauty of the sweeping grounds with views of the patio, pool and tennis court.
This Stanley Anderson home is truly a treasure, made ever more special by the rare intact acreage that surrounds it. In the sought-after Bannockburn School district K-8, you'll love being connected to this welcoming community; perfectly connected and worlds apart.
Often referred to as "one of the North Shore's best kept secrets", the Village of Bannockburn is located 27 miles north of downtown Chicago. Residents enjoy the privacy afforded by estate-sized lots and carefully planned landscape buffers as well as convenient proximity to the neighboring communities of Deerfield, Lincolnshire, Lake Forest and Highland Park.
The first settlers to the area arrived in 1835 from County Meath, Ireland. Later, an architect and builder from Scotland named William Aitken created a master plan covering 110 acres where he intended to build country estates for people who wanted a genteel style of living. Over the years more land was acquired and today the village encompasses 1,318 acres. Aitken's original intent - to create a residential community of homes on large tracts of land within a rural atmosphere comprising natural landscapes and open spaces - is preserved to this day.
