This magnificently appointed custom brick and stone home in Kildeer's Prairie Creek subdivision has everything you could want, from a theater room, wine cellar and large recreation area in the walkout basement to a travertine foyer, gourmet kitchen and spacious main level living spaces with what seems like acres of hardwood floors.

The home literally features the trim and special touches of which you have probably always dreamed. There are three fireplaces, a wet bar, volume ceilings throughout, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and first-class trims, doors and finishes. There are even laundry rooms on both the first and second floors.

Outdoors there is a paver brick patio and coordinating walkways, as well as a deck and extensive landscaping. Views of the nature preserve from the yard are spectacular.

Listing agent Bobbie O'Reilly of Weichert Realtors in Long Grove offers further details about this home:

What is this home's hidden gem?

"The hidden gem in this home is that you have gorgeous views and access to a nature preserve with walking paths and a pond off in the distance."

What would your perfect buyer look like?

"I think the perfect buyers for this home will be young professionals with children, perhaps a nanny (a perfect set up in the lower level), people who can afford luxury and style but also want a warm nest for their family."

What surprises you about this house?

"The surprise is how comfortable and cozy this home is. It has all of the high-end appointments -- 10-foot ceilings, fabulous light fixtures and window treatments, baths that are a designer's delight -- but beckons you to have a glass of wine with your best friend either in one of the family rooms or in the very spacious master bedroom with fireplace."

What television show can you picture taking place here?

"The TV show that best represents this home would be 'The Cosby Show.' The Huxtables would be very happy here."

What is the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?

"The coolest thing about living in this neighborhood are the neighbors who are good friends, plus the award-winning District 96 and Stevenson High School."

What is one adjective you'd use to describe this house?

"Classy."

Name three plants, flowers or trees in the yard.

"The landscaping is professionally designed and cared for but our favorites would be the birch trees, willow trees and the wildflowers."
