Live in a real world tree house! Enjoy the best of nature and outdoor living in a dramatic, inspiring, open-plan layout with windows galore. This is one of the most unique homes in Libertyville with an equally unique setting - on the edge of the DesPlaines river trail and forest preserve. It is a rustic, yet modern home perfect for remote working, relaxing, cooking and gardening - all with dramatic views from every room. No need to make the drive to Wisconsin or Michigan when you have access to kayaking, biking, and running through forested trails all in your backyard just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago. Incredible, changing seasonal views up the DesPlaines river from a wall of windows along the whole living space. 20 ft cathedral ceiling with clear story windows pour natural light into the larger than life great room with exposed steel trusses and walls. A perfect setting to host friends and family. The outdoor kitchen features a built-in Viking gas grill, cooktop and Big Green Egg with soapstone counters and stainless steel cabinetry to inspire your inner Rick Bayless. The indoor kitchen is equipped with a Viking cooktop, Thermador oven with warming drawer, FisherPaykel Double Dish drawer and Liehberr 48" bioFresh refrigerator. Two ground level bedrooms are just off the kitchen. The home features three glass-tile bathrooms with walk-in showers and a soaking tub. Head up the stairs to the spacious carpeted loft that is ideal for hobbies, child's play, athletic training, an airy work-from-home office and/or guest quarters. The pantry and laundry room also serves as a mudroom, so you can kick off your shoes after a hike without having to worry about the mess. Radiant floor heat system provides barefoot comfort with polished concrete floors. A towering floor to ceiling bookcase houses your collection of books or artifacts. If you love art, design and outdoor living, this could be your dream home and studio.
