Make this gated Oak Brook residence your haven away from it all! An elegant brick Tudor Revival mansion envisioned by Steve Rugo of Rugo/Raff Ltd. Architects and Frank Ponterio Interior Design is poised on 2.5 wooded acres overlooking Fullersburg Woods Forest Preserve, offering complete tranquility, seclusion and a private pond. The award-winning architect's talent for historic design vernacular is on evident display in the 2014-built estate's approximately 9,391 square feet of classically inspired space. A gracious floorplan harmoniously balances the main living and entertaining level with a formal living room, dining room and hall with multiple French doors opening to the outdoors. Bathed in natural light, the entire home is infused with warmth despite the grand stature of many rooms. A gorgeous wood-paneled library offers yet another opportunity for gathering with a fireplace, lounge space and parlor-style bar. The kitchen is an ode to timeless design as marble, soapstone and walnut blend with the finest luxury appliances. Opening from the kitchen are a sun-lit casual dining area and a stunning family room touched by cathedral ceilings and arched picture windows looking out to the lush backyard. Intended to be a true all-season retreat, the estate has prioritized the entertainment amenities that are so sought-after in our new normal, like an indoor sport court and a lower level recreation space with a wet bar, billiards room and gym with walk-out access to the pool. This level also offers a guest bedroom and bath, as well as a wine cellar. Everyone in the family has a chance to spread out comfortably. Upstairs, there are four ensuite bedrooms, including a gorgeous primary suite with a boutique-style walk-in closet and spa bath in mosaic marble with a stunning freestanding tub and dual sinks. An office and a laundry room complete this level. Enjoy sophisticated outdoor living with multiple heated and covered bluestone patio areas on several terraced levels and a heated plunge pool that can be used 365 days a year with an auto cover, jets and swim machine. You will feel completely embraced by this beautifully landscaped setting, created by Mariani Landscaping, with lush lawn and mature trees. It's a place of discovery. Meander down the stone steps and discover a pond and the serenity of nature. No detail has been overlooked in this home. Herringbone wood flooring, exquisite millwork and the finest materials create an unparalleled ambiance. You'll find radiant heating throughout the lower level, all bathrooms, mudroom, laundry room, major walkways, garage and several porches, including the heated outdoor grill area and the patio outside of the library. A state-of-the-art Savant sound system, security system and the latest technology also mean a seamless living experience. Beyond the seclusion afforded by this property, it offers a prime location near conveniences and the area's acclaimed schools, including the highly ranked Hinsdale Central High School.
