May 12th, 2016 - Johnsburg, Illinois--Custom built by an international pilot and his wife, The Hickory Estate offers distinct style and luxury amenities. The sellers found inspiration for the home from around the world and throughout the United States during their many travels.
Upon arriving at the sprawling English Tudor, you are drawn in by the perfectly manicured landscape and castle-esque front entrance. The framework of the 5,600 square foot home was crafted by oak timbers from the forests of Michigan. The soaring timbers accentuate the 28 foot vaulted ceilings and two story peak through brick fireplace in the main great room. The expansive open staircase was built on site from craftsmen in Breckinridge, Colorado. The woodwork throughout the home is impressive.
“The details are what make this home so special. When you enter a room, there is a story to tell. Buyers are looking for that unique property that speaks to them, and this is it. ” Candace Decker of Decker Realty Group explained. Her favorite room in the house? “It has to be the master,” she said. The master bath is comparable to a luxury international hotel suite. The high end finishes include Turkish travertine heated flooring, a double steam shower featuring a German Hansgrohe rain shower, specialty mood lighting, and a Toto Japanese style bidet with heated water. The lavish vanity faucets from Italy perfectly accent the full length German vessel sink. The master also opens up through French doors into the en suite sun room complete with a built in hot tub overlooking the tranquil surroundings.
The home also offers a 12 sided timber frame office, home gym, and a large work studio. Located on the edge of Johnsburg and McHenry, the estate privately overlooks vast McHenry County Conservation land. The property also boasts a small horse stable and 4 car garage set up for car enthusiasts. Listed by Candace Decker of Decker Realty group, with an offering price of $675,000.
