With warmer weather just around the corner, this St. Charles home is made for outdoor living

With its impressive 2,500-bottle wine cellar, winding main staircase, plush theater room, gourmet kitchen, and beautiful wood flooring throughout, there’s plenty to like amid the more than 8,500 square feet of indoor living space in this English manor home at 6N430 Burr Road in St. Charles, now on the market for $1.575 million.

Yet even with all of the luxury on offer under the new roof, it’s the embarrassment of amenities spread across the generous 3.4-acre lot that’s sure to command the most attention. “As large and inviting as the home is, it’s the outdoor space that blows me away,” says listing agent Amy Crane of Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group. “Convenient to everything St. Charles has to offer, you still feel tucked away in your own little hamlet.”

That tucked-away feeling comes from the abundance of mature oak trees that ensconce the property and line the banks of the creek running through the yard. In between these towering sentries are a variety of manmade attractions, including a private bridge that traverses said creek (and is wide and sturdy enough to support both landscaping equipment and the golf cart that comes with the house), a regulation sand volleyball court, heated in-ground pool and hot tub, waterfall and koi pond, massive deck, outdoor bar/kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven, and a custom fire pit with seating for 12. Bring on summer.
