This is a Once-In-A-Lifetime opportunity to own the restored 1939 Oakcrest Farm manor representing an excellent example of the Tudor-style. Designed by architect F. Clare Hinckley, the home features steeply pitched roofs, half-timber construction with brick nogging, limestone exterior, rough cut timber siding, diamond-shaped quarries of glass set in a lattice of lead in the windows, clay roof tile, and copper gutters and downspouts. The restoration modernized key elements of the home to a luxury standard while preserving the character of the home. The property is designated by the Village of Schaumburg as a Historic Landmark Property. The home features several outdoor living areas. A walled garden and patio on the north side of the home is quiet and intimate. The south end of the property is expansive, presenting much of the nearly half acre. A large brick paver patio is shaded by a gazebo that matches the design and style of the home. This space overlooks a professionally landscaped yard, with manicured gardens and mature trees. As you enter the home, your eye will be drawn to the immense great room. The twenty-six-foot ceilings are beamed with old-world timbers and framed with crown molding. Two- story windows allow natural light to pour into the room. This space also showcases a large stone fireplace and built-in bookcases. You will find hand carved oak leaf and acorn designs representing Oakcrest Farm, in addition to hand-forged doorknobs in the shape of acorns. The alcove under the oak staircase, which holds a writing desk, is a special treasure. The original covered patio was transformed to a four-season room with Marvin windows and French doors. A Lopi gas stove provides heat in the cooler months. The walls and ceiling are finished with tongue and groove cedar and the floor with porcelain tile. The complete renovation of the kitchen was by Abruzzo. The wall dividing the kitchen and dining room was opened. White Brookhaven cabinetry and granite counters were designed to fit the character of the home. The appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking range and microwave, Bosch dishwasher and Kohler cast iron sink. From the kitchen, you can look through the dining room and sunroom, giving you a view of the gazebo and arboretum-like grounds. The main floor bedroom features plaster walls and a beamed ceiling.
