Property Description

Bayles Lake, located in East Central IL, 30 minutes north of the University of IL! We have lake residents commuting to Bloomington/Normal, Champaign/Urbana, and the Chicagoland area! Easy, unobstructed highway driving! And, if you are lucky enough to have a remote job, then you really have it made - enjoying the lap of luxury living on this lake front property as you work and play! There are 252 lake homes at Bayles with over 95% being waterfront! Very few homes on the lake are this size with an all brick exterior. Custom built, brick, 3 levels with walk-out lower level, LAKEFRONT home on extra large lot with gorgeous water & golf course views E,S,W on the south end of lake! The brick exterior takes this home to an upgraded level of quality construction with sophistication and impressive curb appeal. All the windows are Pella's quality wood framed construction! Plenty of windows throughout the home's architecture provide an abundance of natural light and exceptional scenic views on all three levels!!! The grand front entrance with deep covered porch flanked by dual brick columns, is a great space to relax and view the wooded park across the street, along with the landscaped area near porch. The Thermador insulated front door with leaded glass welcomes you to the 2-story open foyer with grand curved staircase! Open concept living room with fireplace adorned with mahogany custom designed mantle and dining room with fantastic water views! The kitchen joins the dining and family rooms which makes it perfectly positioned for entertaining! Kitchen and bump out dinette have expansive lake views, and is open to the family room which provides access to the 2nd story newer deck overlooking the expansive backyard and lake. The kitchen has beautiful custom cherry cabinetry and recently updated quartz countertops, sink & faucet and cooktop with plenty of space to prepare meals and put out a spread of food to enjoy. The home boasts 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a full walk-out basement to the backyard oasis! The 1st floor 4th bedroom with mahogany walls is currently an office, however, this room could easily be used for an in-law/guest suite which has an attached full bathroom! The second floor has two bedrooms that share a full bath (jack n Jill set up) and a HUGE vaulted walk-in bonus attic area over the garage, 28 x 14, that could easily be converted into more finished living space! Extremely spacious master bedroom suite features a walk-in closet, a nook perfect for reading, yoga, workout space and an expansive master bathroom with double bowl vanities, whirlpool tub, large walk-in separate shower and toilet closet. The full walk-out basement includes french doors opening to the lower level patio for additional outdoor living space with access to a HUGE yard & lake with private dock which was newly built. Basement includes a theatre space with screen and projector, (just need to add seating!) Home also includes in-house vacuum! Built-in cabinets and a large workshop area provides extra space and storage. Full size bathroom with dedicated hot water is great set up for overnight guests. The oversized 2 door garage (really 3 car space), has in-floor heat with plenty of storage options and work areas for year round use! Soak in lake life and all it has to offer! If you have never heard of Bayles Lake, well, this is a must see area, there is nothing quite like it - a slice of paradise! The lake is Spring-fed with multiple locations throughout the lake! This development was excavated from an existing large stream in the early 1950's and was discovered to be a perfect location to develop a water recreation area as blue clay is the base for the lake, perfect for holding spring-fed fresh water from the massive aquifers that run well below. No mud bottom here! Our dual annual water tests of the lake water prove how clean the water is on a yearly basis! The home owners at Bayles take great pride in our lake community!
