Welcome spring and summer with a flush of blooming wildflowers growing on the rolling prairies and adjacent forest preserve surrounding this spectacular five-acre country estate. Nestled between Lake Forest and Libertyville in the charming equestrian village of Mettawa, the original estate was designed in 1920 by the noted Harrie T. Lindeberg as a retreat and gentleman's farm, known as "Rimwold" Today it consists of a beautifully renovated main house, a four-bedroom coach house, a gorgeous pool house and a stunning infinity pool with a waterfall and spa, a greenhouse, a small orchard and a wonderful vegetable garden. This former Infant Welfare Society showcase house offers beautifully appointed grand scaled rooms, tall ceilings with hand cut beams (circa 1800), beautiful wood burning fireplaces, custom millwork and magnificent windows. The house also boasts a handsome paneled library, an elegant living room, a large formal dining room with an adjacent anteroom and a billiard room. A stunning Christopher Peacock kitchen with high end appliances, oversized island and separate breakfast room, butler's pantry and a spacious Great Room with a massive fireplace, all with sweeping views of the spectacular grounds. The private bedroom wing enjoys a luxurious primary suite with fireplace and spa bath, plus two additional en-suite bedrooms. The home also features a finished lower level with a large wine cellar and recreation rooms. The second floor offers additional rooms, large cedar closet and expansion potential. Other highlights include a backup generator, monitoring system, brick driveway with a large motor court, an oversized five car attached garage with storage above, plus additional 2 car garage with the coach house. Numerous patios and stone courtyards, perfect for large scale entertaining or intimate gatherings. A truly exceptional offering, ultimate in privacy surrounded by woodlands and prairie, yet just minutes to town, upscale shopping and restaurants, equestrian facilities and award-winning Stevenson Highschool and Lincolnshire elementary schools. With easy access to major highways, Metra train and O'Hare Airport this home has all the comforts of modern living in a resort-like storybook setting. Virtual tour available.
