A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY COUNTRY LIVING ON A HISTORIC FARM IN THE CHICAGO SUBURBS! This is not just a home and 11.25 acres, it's a lifestyle. Imagine hosting family celebrations in the large restored barn with gorgeous hand-hewn oak beams circa 1850. The drive welcomes as it winds past three additional original outbuildings including a corn crib and a chicken coop. Walking trails lead through thoughtfully planted forests of pine, beech, maple, and bald cypress, and an orchard of fruit trees. The West Branch of the DuPage River flows through the property and native prairie plantings surround the river in the lowland wetland areas. A spring house sits adjacent to the natural spring-fed pond. The circa 1850 farm house overlooks the hilly terrain, the pond, and the cypress forest. The living room's high ceilings, wood-burning fireplace and built in shelving make it the heart of this home. The dining room has original, restored wood floors and the sunny family room has expansive views. The main level master bedroom suite has a full bath, built-in cabinets, and access to the exterior. The second floor has two additional bedrooms with wood floors and natural light. The basement offers a 4th bedroom, laundry room and ample storage. Spend quiet evenings in the screened porch complete with its own wood burning fireplace and private garden views. Adjacent to Timber Ridge Forest Preserve, the property provides easy access to the Illinois Prairie Path with its 61 miles for walking, biking, and horseback riding. The first time the property has been on the market in over 70 years, this jewel of a farm is a preserved piece of history and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a rural setting, but in the middle of suburbia.
