Encompassing 190 acres along the Sangamon River in central Illinois, this magnificent family compound was designed by Ken Hazlett LLC at the turn of the 21st century for a software engineer using the finest materials and technologies. Inspired by the early 20th-century English country homes of Edwin Lutyens but expressed in the Prairie Style indigenous to Midwest America, this incredible 12,000 square foot residence is a world unto itself. Interior spaces include a gourmet Kitchen & Dining area, a two-story Living Room, Library, Master Suite, 4 private Guest Suites, and lower level Spa. A spacious English-style Conservatory and expansive Terraces look out over the managed prairie that surrounds the house. A “Widow’s Watch” is positioned as the crowning glory to this composition, allowing views down to the river and across the surrounding grounds. Outbuildings include an authentic log cabin in the woods that serves as a “Petit Trianon” to this modern day Versailles.
