Historic residences to own in the Lake Geneva region | Local News

Welcome to a year-round vacation on Chain O’ Lakes! This home has been lovingly loved and updated over the past 5 years. Almost everything inside and out has been retouched and is top quality. The views from this home are absolutely outstanding and the yard is of an unprecedented size for the area. The property consists of three plot lots, totaling approximately 0.82 acres, including 90 feet of river frontage and a 50 foot long sandy beach! There is also additional land across the street (50×150) which is buildable; perfect for a huge garage or shed! This home sits above the lock and dam, which means boating upstream to the 10+ lakes in the chain is quick and easy. The structure itself sits outside the floodplain, with supporting FEMA documents. No flood insurance is required. The house faces east, so you will enjoy beautiful sunrises while admiring the river. You will also appreciate the shade that the house provides in the afternoon while you entertain guests on the 14×16 unistone patio; while watching the boats go by! There is also a side terrace which is perfect for a grill or smoker. The driveway is MASSIVE and has room for 10 cars! Park your RV and boat at home and save on winter storage! The detached 1.5 car garage and house roof is standing seam metal with hidden fasteners and Kynar paint. The house is very low maintenance, with vinyl siding and composite decking. The home is also very energy efficient, with total utility bills for 2021 totaling less than $2,600! This is thanks to the gas boiler system for underfloor heating for the entire ground floor and all bathrooms. There are also 3 mini splits, with a total of 9 heads throughout the house for fully customizable HVAC zones. The mini-splits are also equipped with heat pumps. The indoor units are all controllable by individual remote controls for each room. The water heater is a high efficiency tankless system, and there is a whole house water filter and water softener system. Walk into the dramatic entryway and you’ll immediately notice the 5 floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the beauty of the Fox River, while letting in an abundance of natural light. There is recessed lighting throughout the main level and a stone wall in the main living area. The media system’s cords are all tucked away and routed to a closet – no messy equipment shelf needed. There is an integrated surround sound system with a subwoofer in the living room and two additional speakers in the kitchen. The dining room has gorgeous lighting and sits next to floor to ceiling windows for great views all year round while enjoying meals with friends and family. There is also space for a workstation or home office. The bathroom on the main level is a full bath with a walk-in shower, conveniently located off the kitchen. This gourmet kitchen is bright and cheerful and packed with upgrades, including a custom quartz sliding island top that can accommodate additional seating for guests. There’s an over-the-top beverage/wine cooler, built-in electric range, dual convection ovens, quartz countertops, and gorgeous off-white cabinetry. Next to the kitchen is a cozy wood-burning fireplace, with stone cladding and a handmade barn wood mantle. Up the lighted staircase are 4 bedrooms, including the master suite with more large windows overlooking the river. This master bedroom also has a large walk-in closet with custom organizers. The en-suite bathroom is a dream, with a double-headed tiled shower and extended glass on both sides. There is also a spacious bathtub. The second floor has an additional bathroom across from the laundry room, easily closed off with custom sliding doors. This home will provide future owners with years of low maintenance enjoyment, with memories to make on the river and in charming McHenry. Don’t hesitate to see it, it’s the life on the water you’ve been waiting for!
