There’s a magically beautiful place located 40 miles NW of Chicago, and it’s called www.lazywillow.com. This classic chalet style home is as peaceful and gorgeous as can be. Lazy Willow is one of the luxury properties for sale in Crystal Lake, Illinois, and it’s a place that comes with a wealth of history to go along with its natural beauty.
This 5400 square foot home sits on the site of the property’s original log cabin residence. The original old cabin (built by a Chicago architect in 1930) was torn down and the new home was rebuilt on the cabin’s footprint in 1998. This opulent home (which is also used as a Christian day retreat center) sits midway up a 80 foot hill, with a spectacular view of the surrounding yard. The 14.6 acre woods around the home were once used as a private hunting ground.
The main house at Lazy Willow is beautifully designed with a French country interior and a brick exterior. The overall feel is of a country chalet surrounded by incredible waterfalls, ponds and views. The pool house, which is near the beach, was originally the bedroom of the old log cabin. The residence’s main outbuilding was rebuilt in 2004, and today is an elegant country meeting room and bunk room. It’s a 1600 square foot space, and below it, downstairs, is a 1600 square foot shop.
The lush areas surrounding the property at www.lazywillow.com are perfect for relaxing or for enjoying outdoor sports or recreation. The home is located one quarter mile off the road and it has a private 14 car parking area. A 400 foot long creek runs nearby, and two large decks sit inside two sparkling waterfalls, to create a unique outdoor experience.
This amazing residence with its spectacular outdoor surroundings has hosted over 7,000 people at church, youth and elder retreats. The five beautifully appointed bedroom suites here, which glow with natural wood floors and finishes, make it an opulent setting for a private getaway or meeting center. Come pay a visit to www.lazywillow.com and see how beautiful a home can be.
