Given its expansive five-acre lot and 12,000 square feet of living space, the estate at 34W226 Country Club Road in Wayne, now on the market for just under $2.4 million, offers plenty of bang for the bucks. Among the features spread throughout the residence are a wood-paneled office, high-end kitchen, 1,500-bottle wine cellar, gym room and sauna, theater room (complete with ticket booth and concession stand), recently renovated primary suite (with a barrel-ceilinged bathroom featuring heated floors, dual vanities, dual showers, and dual custom walk-in closets), and a light-drenched two-story family room.

While the home was originally completed in 1999, it’s from the soaring windows of that family room that one can marvel at the results of a 2009 expansion that added a resort-inspired backyard oasis, featuring a salt water pool, rock slide, waterfall grotto, koi pond, and huge pergola-covered patio. That project also added a second notable feature: a separate 2,300-square-foot guest house boasting three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, transforming the property into a potential multigenerational compound. “A lot of interested parties have been executive families in their 30s or 40s who have parents or family members that stay with them often, if not full time, and the guest house offers a perfect setup for that,” says listing agent Tamara O’Connor of Premier Living Properties. “This property really lends itself to a lot of different people and lifestyles.”
