Description

Start your journey driving down the unique tree-canopied 400 ft long private asphalt driveway. You will enter and circle around an island deep in Sherwood Forest. Your efforts will reveal a very private storybook split level home. Welcome to this secluded gem nestled in the woods, lovingly designed by noted local architect Eugene Meyer for his wife and family. Be prepared to be charmed, not only by the trees and nature, but by the many architectural touches and possibilities. The home features a very special .88 acres on a secluded heavily wooded lot that will never see another home built around it. A split level that features over 3,500 sf of finished living space. You are welcomed to a beautiful soaring travertine foyer and elegant stairway up to 4 very spacious bedrooms and 3.5 baths. A separate stairway to the upper floors off the kitchen The 28X15 living room features cathedral ceilings adorned with majestic wood beams and a stone fireplace. The lower level offers a large family room with built in wet bar, a fully paneled office and a large room that could be a fifth bedroom or exercise room. Three fireplaces, including one in the primary bedroom, create warmth and character. The house features a brand new roof (with transferable 10 year warranty on labor and materials), two separate patios overlooking the woods, (one with a small gazebo) and a spacious two car attached garage. This special property provides a fabulous location with terrific schools, highway access and all that Highland Park offers. Homeowners will enjoy award winning Deerfield schools and have choice of HPHS or Deerfield High School. This is an estate sale so the home is being sold "As Is". This home needs vision, some loving hands and some investment but, with a little imagination and your individual touches, it can be restored to its former regal condition or become the home of your dreams. With inventory at historic lows and no available Highland Park land to recreate this oasis, don't miss this opportunity to create your dream home in the woods.
