3 words: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Check out this wonderful, 4-bedroom, 2.1-bath traditional colonial home in the historic town of Lake Forest. The inviting front entry is surrounded by mature trees and plantings. Just through the main entry is the open foyer and staircase. Follow the beautiful hardwood floor to your left you will find the spacious, yet light and airy living room that is washed in a neutral pallet. This would be a great place to entertain family and friends,especially since it has sliding glass doors that lead to the outdoor entertaining area. You can barbecue or watch the sunset at the end of a long day. But if privacy is what you need, this space could also be closed off by shutting the classic french doors. There is also a great home office/library tucked away on the other side of the living room. You could have a nice quiet space to get some work done or get lost in a great book. To the right of the main entry is a sizable formal dining room that is filled with lots of light and also has hardwood flooring. Just around the corner the upgraded kitchen has plenty of storage in all of those designer cabinets. It also has stone countertops, high end appliances, and an adjacent breakfast room where you can enjoy the view of the amazing backyard while you enjoy your favorite morning beverage. Imagine spending time with your family in the gorgeous family room especially on those cool fall nights when you turn on the gas fireplace. On this main level, there is also a laundry/mudroom, a powder room, and access to the 3 car garage. Upstairs, you will find your spacious, relaxing, and bright master retreat. It has a walk-in closet and an ensuite bath where you have your choice of a hot shower or bath to relax at the end of a long day. There are also 3 other large bedrooms on this level and a full shared bath. On the lower level, there is a huge recreation area that could become a second family room. You could host game nights or have friends over for the game. There is also plenty of room for storage, space for a second office or craft room, and a utility room. It is only minutes to Metra to get you to downtown Chicago or 20 minutes to O'Hare and you could go anywhere in the world! You could even get right on I-94.
