Own one of the only true WATERFRONT homes in Glen Ellyn! This former builder's residence was designed as a LUXE Prairie Style/ Craftsman home with every amenity thoughtfully executed. ~ QUARTER SAWN OAK CABINETRY, CUSTOM STAINED GLASS WINDOWS, SOAPSTONE COUNTERS, PRAIRIE/MISSION STYLE LIGHTING, HEATED FLOORING & DRIVEWAY! ~ Step inside and you will see that the living room, kitchen, master bedroom, screened porch, stone terrace and outdoor fireplace were all designed to maximize the STUNNING VIEWS OF PERRY'S POND, whose mineral spring fed waters originally brought resort vacationers to Glen Ellyn in the 1890s. ~ FEATURING: Five bedrooms, four full and one half baths, five fireplaces, serene private study with fireplace, spacious finished basement and airy screened porch. ~ SUPERB OPEN FLOOR PLAN that seamlessly blends the cook's kitchen, dining room and large family room. The KITCHEN FEATURES soapstone counters, a deep, single tub, rectangular shaped stainless sink, Viking range, Sub-Zero fridge/freezer, Dacor warming drawers, Gaggenau double convection oven, beverage sink, beverage fridge with ice bin & Bosch dishwasher. ~ The FIRST FLOOR MASTER SUITE exudes a very PRIVATE VIBE and FEATURES a fireplace, oak floors, sliding doors that lead to the terrace, custom built in cabinetry and a large closet with a closet organization system. IT GETS BETTER in the master bath where you will enjoy heated floors, a jetted soaking tub, two bath vanities with illuminated mirrors and a deep shower that includes body sprays and a heated towel rack. ~ As you enter from the garage, you will be greeted by a large laundry/mud room with ample cabinets, closets and cubbies for storage. There is a large walk in pantry and a great planning desk spot for managing daily life events, stacking mail and attending to tasks that need to be accomplished. ~ The SECOND FLOOR has three bedrooms, two of which share a hall bath and the third has a PRIVATE BATH. ~ The basement (really LOWER LEVEL) features HEATED & POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING, a party kitchen, exercise room, fifth bedroom, recreation room and second family room with fireplace. Also, there's a spacious flex room that could be a second study, project/craft room or perhaps small theater room. The full basement bath includes a STEAM SHOWER. Great OUTSIDE ACCESS to the basement which is great when you have to bring in your wet dog from outside. There is an over-sized sink that serves as an DOG BATH. ~ The HEATED DRIVE will make clearing snow and ice a pretty quick task. Inside the house, take advantage of the CENTRAL VACUUM system with toe kicks for quick sweeps of debris in the kitchen, master bath and laundry room. ~ 751 Chidester comes with very SPECIAL HISTORY. In 2001, JULIA ROBERTS filmed a scene here for her A&E documentary "Old Friends" alongside the pond on this property. Though just a SHORT DISTANCE to town, Lake Ellyn and Glenbard West High School, 751 Chidester sits near dozens of forested acres which are a preferred refuge for wildlife including ducks, fish, turtles - and thousands of years ago - even MASTODONS. One was found here in 1962 and is now on display at Wheaton College. ~ 751 CHIDESTER should truly be seen to understand the UNIQUE LIFESTYLE you would enjoy as the next owners of this extraordinary home. It's not even possible to build this particular home with the amenities it offers for this asking price. ~ Also, the township's valuation on this home has been successfully protested and reduced by 15%.
