Property Description

Gorgeous country estate that has something for everyone! This 3700 sq ft home features a main floor primary bedroom suite with two sitting rooms, a fireplace, double vanity bathroom and a walk-in closet. The combined living and dining rooms, that enjoy the beauty of 1 of the 3 wood-burning fireplaces in the home, overlook the 161 acres of property including the 4 acre spring fed stocked pond. The commercial style kitchen with granite counter tops opens to the great room offering the perfect spot for entertaining friends and family. Or spend quiet afternoons and evenings enjoying the breeze on the spacious screened in porch while taking in the amazing view. Upstairs offers 2 nice sized bedrooms, a large bathroom and 2 lofts for even more relaxation space. There is a radio surround system and a house security system as well. The full unfinished walk out basement houses the washer and dryer and a huge cedar closet and is loaded with potential for additional living space, a workshop or home gym. The 4 car heated detached garage is a great place for your dogs with an indoor/outdoor kennel. After purchasing the property, the current owners installed 2 new air conditioners ('21), a Maytag dishwasher ('20), pressure tank/faucets ('18), lightning rods ('14), steel roof on the house and garage ('14), a new water heater ('12) and seal-coated the 1/3 mile black top driveway ('19). In addition to the pond, the property itself is a combination of tillable land (47.5 acres), wooded land with mature trees, a running stream and 4 wheeler trails. There is so much potential to generate income with this property or save money on taxes- hunting contracts, tillable land rental, crops, CRP, Illinois Forestry Program or even an Airbnb (subject to county approval). Enjoy the best of both worlds living a quiet life in Historic Mount Carroll while still enjoying the surplus of amenities nearby- Timberlake Playhouse for the theater lovers, downtown Galena for the art enthusiasts, 2.5 hours from Chicago for fun in the city and recreation fans will love the zip lining and skiing opportunities offered in neighboring towns. Do not miss out on the opportunities this breathtaking estate provides. This property is a must see!
