Live the leisurely life at a stunning escape in Batavia

CONLON/Christie’s International Real Estate is pleased to announce its launch of a stunning property at 3S349 Hart Road in Batavia, IL to market. This extensively remodeled 4-bedroom/3-full- and 2-half-bath beauty charms with distinctive character. Exposed wood beams lend an air of rustic authenticity. High ceilings create a mood of spaciousness, inspiration, and comfort. Ample windows highlight the property’s idyllic 20-acre lot, full of mature and flowering trees, a pond, and a private beach. A floor-to-ceiling stone hearth echoes the kitchens of European chateaus, but don’t be fooled: this house boasts a cook’s kitchen including high-end double refrigerators, a huge gas ranges with six burners and a griddle, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, built-in wine racks, a KitchenAid trash compactor, and plenty of custom cabinetry.  
A spacious master bedroom ensuite opens to the terrace. The room provides his and hers walk-in closets and a spa area—complete with a whirlpool tub, shower with two heads and a bench, his-and-hers Kohler vanity sinks, and tasteful marble tiling. Other rooms include a game room and half bath, a large hardwood lofted area with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, an office with private bath, a mud/laundry room with full bath, and an unfinished basement-with-storage, ripe for your creativity. 
This home dedicates space to leisure and recreation. A covered porch extends the seasons, while an open-air patio and trellis roof allows for full enjoyment of fair weather—two of many terraces and patios. A beautiful natural stone indoor pool area offers a bar for entertaining, skylights, space for crowds or yoga sessions, a table for poolside dining, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and a projector that allows guests to watch movies from the relaxing comfort of the pool. For gardeners, this room also provides a wonderful winter home for warm-weather plants. In the summertime, swimmers can paddle through the property’s small, private lake. There are a two-level, three-stall barn and a horse pasture. And a 12-car, detached garage means plenty of options for warm-air joyrides out of the 800’, heavily wooded driveway.
