Algonquin's highly sought-after Tunbridge subdivision with its golf course and wetlands views is the location of this outstanding brick and cedar colonial, built in 1993. Professionally-landscaped and decorated, this home is in pristine condition with lots of custom detailing, including a turret.

Porcelain tile floors adorn the kitchen, eating area, foyer and laundry room while the rest of the house is carpeted. The roomy family room features a cathedral ceiling and fireplace with a nearby wet bar. The gourmet island kitchen comes equipped with a closet pantry and eating area.

The main level also includes a study, laundry room, living room and dining room. The lower level is partially finished and includes a bathroom rough-in, as well as a crawl space. Outdoors there is a large deck that offers views of both the golf course and the wetlands.

Listing agent Katy Mele of Prudential American Heritage in Barrington offers further details:

What's the hidden gem in this house?

"The hidden gem in this house is the bonus 'turret' dinette area off the kitchen and the master bedroom turret sitting room above. Not only do they add character to the home, but you can enjoy the beautiful views from each location."

What would your perfect buyer look like?

"The perfect buyer would be anyone looking for the prestige that a golf course location has to offer. Regardless if you golf or not, the spectacular wetland and golf course views make this an exceptional property from every angle."

What surprises you about this house?

"The biggest surprise is the amount of living space here. It features more than 3,200 square feet, an open and flowing floor plan and spacious room sizes. This is a home truly designed for raising a family, yet it is also ideal for executive living and entertaining. The builder's attention to detail shines throughout."

What's the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?

"The Tunbridge subdivision is a neighborhood where families are raised and friendships are cultivated. This is a great location with regard to shopping, schools and expressways."

What's one adjective you'd use to describe the house?

"Spectacular."

Name three plants, flowers or trees in the yard.

"Professionally landscaped yard boasting an abundant selection of perennials, river birch and weeping willow trees and barberry shrubs, not to mention the wetland views."
