Woodgate Estate

37W756 Woodgate Road, St. Charles, Illinois, United States, 60175

Woodgate Estate reimagines the traditional home as an all-encompassing sensory experience, with modern splendor blended seamlessly with surrealist atmosphere.  The effect is felt immediately upon entering the great room, evoking at once the scale and grandeur of a vaulted basilica and the dreamlike tranquility of a glowing and endless art museum – geometric symmetry, cascading stairways, hidden waterfalls, and expansively textural artwork, all anchored by a central enclave of flourishing trees.  Set on 26 acres, with a 5 acre Japanese garden, this estate is truly a one-of-a-kind retreat.  You’ve entered into a timeless and spiritual oasis.

 

Woodgate Estate features three media rooms, over one hundred fifty light zones, eighty-seven security zones, indoor and outdoor pools, four garage doors, fourteen stereo zones, multiple waterfalls, and more.  Given the scope and complexity of the technology integrated into the home, the home automation system is essential to ensuring the ease of the homeowner’s experience.  The integration of high-technology in managing the environmental aspects of the home reduces a “thousand-command lifestyle setting” to the touch of one button.  Designed and installed by St. Charles’ own MediaTech®, co-founder Paul Faber discusses the benefits of owning an intelligent home with a seamless user interface.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the spa, which encompasses an entire wing of the first floor, offering a world-class gym, an indoor pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, and a steam room.  With all of these amenities cloistered closely together, this section of the home lends itself as a personal retreat, a comfortable and convenient place to attain physical health and mental clarity.  Health and fitness are literally at the heart of the home.  This healing environment offers 24 hour health benefits – it is an investment in your physical health and mental well-being.

“The garden’s Japanese flavor is accomplished through water features, stonework, winding paths, and simplicity of materials. Changes in elevation, accomplished through carefully planned cuts and fills on a basically flat site, provide beautifully framed vignettes of waterfalls, woodland paths, or natural wetlands.”  Whether it’s enjoying a relaxing walk, finding a quiet place for meditation, admiring sunsets across the wetlands, or engaging in active play on the tennis courts, Woodgate Estate offers limitless possibilities for an enriching life.  This unique haven is full of both potential and promises fulfilled. – Landscape Architecture Magazine
