This elegant Inverness home will "wow" your family and friends from the moment they walk in the front door.
Everywhere you look there are high-end finishes like hardwood floors, stainless appliances, built-ins and floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as luxurious amenities like an Abruzzo gourmet kitchen, a first-floor in-law suite, a back staircase to the garage, a finished basement with theater room and bar, and a large yard with a private deck and paver patio.
Listing agents Tony and Tina Sarantakis of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offer further details:
What is this home's hidden gem?
"It is versatility. This home features an open floor plan that is perfect for today's lifestyles, transitioning between contemporary flair and traditional elegance."
What is the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?
"We cannot say this enough. Inverness Hills has the friendliest neighbors -- people you can count on when the need arises. The location is close to shopping, parks, the much-sought-after Palatine Township Elementary District 15 and Fremd High School, which all contribute to the popularity of this 'user-friendly' neighborhood."
What is one adjective you would use to describe this home?
"Impressive! Sophisticated attention to detail throughout the home from the moment you enter the grand foyer to the immaculate manicured, lushly landscaped lot."
Who is the perfect buyer for this home?
"This home offers a special appeal to large families who love to entertain. It features an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen and two-story family room, which are accessible to the deck and hot tub, a spectacular recreation room with a 65-inch television and surround sound system to host sports viewing parties, and an acre yard that can easily accommodate a soccer game."
What television show can you picture taking place in this home?
" 'Fuller House,' the continuation of 'Full House,' would be the perfect fit. D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy, now adults, would love this spacious home. The multiple entertaining areas -- family room, recreation room and the gourmet kitchen -- offer a great setting for both family and friends to gather and enjoy. Danny, Joey, Jesse, Becky and the boys' visits may turn into a permanent stay, making the exercise room Jesse's music studio."
