Property Description

Privacy, Tranquility and Breathtaking views -- Welcome to Murphy Lake! Why own a weekend lake home, when you can enjoy YEAR-ROUND RESORT LIVING on your own PRIVATE LAKE? Located 15 miles from downtown Chicago and 10 minutes from O'Hare, Murphy Lake is a 14.5 acre private lake with 32 homes and a captivating island on its north end. Leave life's worries behind as you enter your private driveway to a BUILDER'S OWN custom-designed executive home. This home boasts the largest pier in the subdivision, potentially the BEST FISHING lake for Large Mouth Bass and Tiger Musky in Cook County, and is located on arguably the most private street in all of Park Ridge. This 3-story executive home with PANORAMIC LAKE VIEWS offers you access to nature along with many options for WORKING FROM HOME and REMOTE LEARNING. Your family will enjoy lake activities year-round: swimming, kayaking, skating and ice hockey. Biking and running enthusiasts will love the nature trails just outside the home. This one of a kind builder's home offers a timeless combination of luxury stone and wood along with modern and heritage pieces that you will not find anywhere else. This lakefront villa was thoughtfully designed to capture panoramic lake views, sunrises and beautiful natural light on all three floors. The eat-in kitchen opens to the family room and will be the heart of your family's gatherings. The kitchen itself is exquisitely appointed with Habersham cabinetry; note the custom built hutch, hood, and island. The dramatic, two story living and dining room features floor to ceiling windows and a one of a kind antique fireplace mantel. The first floor also offers convenient access to the terrace, overlooking the lake, where your casual and formal gatherings are bound to become memorable events. You will find another spectacular area for family fun and entertainment in the lower level walkout basement. Your very own custom built bar with plenty of seating, stone fireplace, movie/TV area and billiard room is perfect for family gatherings. Sliding doors open to your private loggia and fireplace which becomes the passageway to your tranquil outdoor lake life. A luxurious master suite awaits you on the second floor, but there is also a first floor bedroom en suite that could serve as a primary bedroom. Most convenient location: close to uptown Park Ridge, Rosemont Fashion Outlet, easy access to expressways, and top-rated schools. Close to everything you might need, yet private and secluded enough to get away from it all.
