Description

SELLER WROTE ON JUNE 6, 2024: MEA CULPA.... We apologize....We thank you for your patience....The workmen have finally finished, much later than we imagined, and we can now welcome qualified prospective purchasers for showings of 80 Meadow Hill....Today the 5 rolling acres of elevated land with about 125 evergreens standing 75-feet-tall along the borders....and this extraordinary brick ranch home-inspired by America's greatest architect, FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT-with floor-to-ceiling windows in every room that allow light to flood the home....are ready for discriminating and eager buyers to see for all their beauty....to palpably understand the reasons they will receive year-round privacy, comfort, serenity, and joy....and to know the reasons the seller has lived here 37 years. One reason: the home is located 10 feet higher than Meadow Hill Road to the east and 30 feet higher than Bow Lane to the west for breathtaking views....You will note that all the living space is at ground level and comprises 2,440 square feet....The primary bedroom is large enough for a sitting area and a desk for remote workers. The large laundry room, with huge windows and wonderful views, can double as either an office or a child's bedroom....Yes, there is an unfinished lower level but it is not included in the 2,440 sf but offers a WHOPPING 1330 SQ FT--38 x 35-- for potential bedrooms, bathroom, podcast/zoom studio....Currently, the lower-level has heating/AC equipment and a very valuable asset: against the walls are 42 linear feet of wooden cabinets 7.5 feet high and 2 feet deep. (34 drawers with 32 inches of interior width plus cabinets to hang long clothes or store boxes) REGARDING PRICES AND HOME SCARCITY: Home prices-like stock markets-are at all-time highs. The biggest driver is a severe shortage of homes.... In the CHICAGO METRO AREA, homes available for sale in March 2024 were down 15.5% from March 2023 and median sales prices were up 9.6%....In BARRINGTON HILLS, there is a paucity of homes available for sale on 5 acres or more. Today there are only 2 ranch homes available in all of Barrington Hills, and the larger is 80 Meadow Hill....The 3 lowest priced homes more than $1 million are 3 two-story homes priced at $1.1, $1.2, and $1.4 million. Of those 3 homes, one was built in 1925 and another in 1935; the third is an equestrian property with multiple paddocks and barns. ...Compare 80 Meadow Hill with these 3 listings between $1.1 and $1.4 million, and you'll readily and unequivocally agree that the 80 Meadow Hill price should be seven figures....80 Meadow Hill has, however, intentionally been priced under the market....so that the next owners can use their personal preferences or even wildest dreams to make further additions or improvements if they wish....and buy 80 Meadow Hill at a steal before the price is increased to its true 7-figure market value. NOTES TO QUALIFIED BUYERS: Before you call to set an appointment to see 80 Meadow Hill, we respectfully ask you, and others who may join you as the new owner, to look at all the photos of the land, home, and floor plans. Once you and your future co-owner have agreed that 80 Meadow Hill will fit your needs-and you are in love with 80 Meadow Hill!-please call to schedule the showing for both of you at least 48 hours prior to your desired time so we can accommodate all those who want to visit. TWO FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT BONUSES FOR THE BUYER: Iron gates at the beginning of the driveway are a custom-made replica of gates Wright designed for the Johnson Wax Estate in Wisconsin.....4 gorgeous custom-made large stained-glass windows in the family room are replicas of the windows Wright designed for his Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL. ITEMS NOT TO MISS IN PHOTOS: living room with vaulted ceiling and marble fireplace, family room with brick fireplace, vaulted ceilings in the primary bedroom and ensuite bath at end of house, 2 more bedrooms with a shared bathroom with double vanity and shower/tub.
