This incredible, modernized 10.8+ acre farmstead is well-appointed as an equine property, hobby farm, and event center. AG-1 zoning keeps property taxes low on this estate, which features an updated 4-bedroom "modern farmhouse", an historic dairy barn with stables, a heated automotive shop, a new equine pole barn with stables, and a separate well-appointed guesthouse. The 4-bedroom primary home boasts newer porcelain tile on the main level and hickory hardwood on the second level; an updated kitchen with modern cabinets, custom walnut countertops, quartz island, high-end sub-zero refrigerator, and 10-burner professional range; spacious dining & living rooms; and updated bathrooms throughout. Enhancing the main level are an office, a butler's pantry, a laundry room with a dog-washing station, and a half bath. The second level offers 4 bedrooms that include a luxurious private master suite and stunning views from every window. The main home also features a new (2020) brick patio with outdoor fireplace and pergola overlooking the 1-acre stocked pond (largemouth, bluegill, shiners, catfish), as well as a new (2021) maintenance-free deck in the side yard. In 2020, the estate's original 5-car carriage house was stripped inside and out to transform it into a gorgeous guesthouse, with the 3 remaining garage bays available for indoor parking on freshly-poured concrete. The main level of the dairy barn is suitable for use as an event center with updated lighting and electrical service throughout, while also offering equine stalls and ample equipment and implement storage in the 85'x35' lower level. Attached to the dairy barn is a 85'x25' enclosed, insulated, and heated automotive shop space, which includes a 65-amp electric heater and a new concrete floor plumbed for radiant heat (only requires a boiler to bring it fully online). Among the many modernizations is a property-wide integrated solar array approved by ComEd for "net-zero" metering, resulting in very low electric bills. Completing the estate is a fully-furnished chicken coop + equine run-in shelter, a sheep shelter, 3 newly-fenced 1-acre grazing pastures, an "inner" equine paddock, an "outer" equine paddock or sacrifice lot, and 2+ acres of naturalized land with maintained walking/riding trails and wildlife (deer, rabbits, turkey, etc.). There is so much to see on this amazing property, so make sure you allow enough time to take it all in!
