Fore Shadow

Appears in the April 2022 issue.

It’s only fitting that this impressive home backs up to one of the most historic golf courses in the United States; it’s inspired by a property that sits aside Muirfield Golf Course, one of the most iconic tracts in the world. Designed by Chicago architect Richard Hague as a replica of Grey Walls in Scotland and built of solid Wisconsin limestone by Airhart Construction, the five-bed, seven-bath estate on Chicago Golf Club features top-of-the-line woodwork and finishes throughout 7,800 square feet of living space, including in the fully upgraded kitchen. There’s also a mahogany-appointed office, as well as a ready-to-finish lower level with nearly 6,000 additional square feet of possibilities. Chief among the home’s many draws, according to listing agent Susann Rhoades of Re/Max Suburban, is the beautifully landscaped 1.8-acre lot, easily enjoyed on warm summer nights from the handsome limestone terrace.

“This little pocket of Wheaton is very exclusive and off the beaten path,” Rhoades says. “This is an ideal home for someone who appreciates the finer things and sees the value in the size of the property and the uniqueness of the design. It’s definitely not a cookie-cutter type of home.”
