From the moment you drive through the front gates and approach this lovely home on the circular driveway you will feel at home. Rarely will you find the privacy afforded at this peaceful resort-worthy peninsula estate on 32 acre Lake Inverlake. With 2.92 manicured acres filled with mature trees and perennial gardens, 280 feet of shoreline & a private sandy beach (Yes! the paddleboat is included.) you can work and play without ever feeling confined. Every day will be a staycation with electric motorized boats, kayaks and paddle boards allowed. Settle in for an afternoon of fishing in the lake stocked with bass, crappie & even a few northern pike. Grab a glass of wine and settle in with a good book in the screened gazebo lakeside. The gazebo is just one of multiple "outdoor rooms" including a cocktail terrace as you approach the front door. Upon entering the leaded glass front door you'll have panoramic views of the lake through the floor to ceiling windows flanking the 2 story stone fireplace in the great room. Enjoy rooms flooded with natural light and spectacular views from almost every window! Even rainy days are special when spent in the lakeside dining room with skylights that opens to the white chef's kitchen. Work remote from the 1st floor library (be careful...those views can be distracting) or set up e-learning in the 700 square foot bonus room upstairs , which was built out in 2012 and has its own HVAC system (3 HVAC in total), The bonus room would be an ideal art studio, exercise room or "working" home office hidden away from sight. The light filled walkout lake level is an ideal place to entertain or would make an ideal in-law suite or place for children returning home with the 2nd kitchen, full bath, family room with fireplace and bedroom. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Minutes to schools, forest preserves, Woodfield Mall, Deer Park shopping and dining, Metra, I-90 (only 15-20 minutes to O'Hare!) and so much more! Blue Ribbon Barrington schools including Grove Avenue Elementary, Prairie Middle and Barrington High School. The 4+ car oversized garage (1,340 sq. ft.!) provides tons of room for storing your "Big Boy" toys! This was the personal home of respected area builder Evan Harris who was an avid classic car collector. Evan chose one of the premier lake lots at the deep end of the lake when he built this incredible home. The garage provides lots of room for kayaks and water toys. Extra deep well. There are two associations in the neighborhood and this home belongs to both. The Lake Association is comprised of 31 homes on the lake with current annual dues of $750. The Inverness Shores HOA has annual dues of $125. The sunrises are magnificent, fishing is catch and release, and the peaceful seasonal views are a welcome respite from the stresses of the day! Welcome home!
