Description

A paragon of timeless elegance, this Lake Forest estate unfolds on 1.73 tranquil acres set along a private lane. Meticulously updated inside and out with a new Brava shake roof, the residence boasts over 5,400 square feet of luxurious living, encompassing six bedrooms, five full and two half baths, an expansive first-floor primary wing with a dedicated library/office, and a finished basement level. A cascading Italian fountain serves as the first introduction to the home as a circular brick driveway and bluestone front walkway guide visitors to the entry. The entire residence is enveloped by mature trees and landscaping, lending to a sense of sanctuary. An oasis awaits in the backyard, featuring a stunning bluestone patio, pool with a waterfall, spa, patio, and gazebo. Inside, a well-designed floor plan sets the stage for sophisticated living and entertaining. The grand 2-story foyer with a curved staircase and crystal chandelier creates a dramatic first impression. Stone floors lead the eye towards captivating sightlines of the private backyard from the living room's dramatic wall of windows. Soaring ceilings and abundant light infuse the formal dining and living rooms with expansiveness. Throughout the interiors, rich architectural details contribute to the home's overarching grandeur: exquisite millwork, tray ceiling details, custom built-ins, and refinished hardwood flooring with some rooms bearing bespoke inlay elements and a herringbone pattern. The family room opens to a large, light-filled chef's kitchen featuring top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a granite island, a walk-in pantry, and a breakfast room overlooking the pool. An adjoining butler's pantry provides a convenient connection to the dining room. Double doors lead to the sumptuous master suite wing with a library, dressing area/sitting room with bay windows, dual walk-in closets and a spa-like bath recently renovated in Carrara marble. Sliding glass doors open to the back patio. Four bedrooms upstairs, two of which offer ensuite baths, ensure comfort for everyone. The finished lower level offers further opportunities for entertainment and leisure. A state-of-the-art home theater, a sixth bedroom, a fifth full bathroom, a dedicated exercise area, a spacious recreation room, a large laundry room, and ample storage complete the picture of this remarkable residence.
