Property Description

Nestled in the heart of Bannockburn, this lovely Storybook Cottage was originally built in the early 1930's by Bannockburn's founder William Aitken, who was an architect and builder who is credited with bringing modern real estate development to the Village. Located in the desirable Bannockburn School District, and minutes away from major commuter routes to Lake Forest, Deerfield, Northbrook and the freeway, this hidden gem is situated on a 3.25 acres, surrounded by a variety of specimen trees and mature perennial plantings, and natural limestone .15 acre pond all which date back to the Aitken Estate (C 1930s). Built for perfect for easy country living, and extra peace and quiet that dense urban living cannot provide, many of the original features are well preserved, including some of the original doors and windows and expansive Greenhouse. The first level offers a kitchen, dining room and living room with large wood-burning fireplace, and an expansive 1st Floor Master bedroom and full bath. The second level features two more spacious bedrooms, walk-in closets and a full bathroom. Detached garage has room for 2 vehicles, a workshop, and two stalls for horses, and the 2nd level provides storage or possible office/studio space. Minutes to shops, award winning Schools, parks, restaurants. Build your dream home, or live in a home of historic significance draped with modern day conveniences. Plans available. Located in area of multi-million dollar estates. As-is due to age of home.
