Property Description

Stunning, rare and refined Grand Ranch, approximately 6000s sf, with 10 foot ceilings and multi-windowed big views of gorgeous 2.45 acre grounds. Imagine a Gold Coast penthouse picked up and transplanted to this special private oasis of perennial gardens, lawns and mature woods - and you will begin to understand the magic of this special custom home with truly classic lines that can embrace traditional, transitional or modern decor with equal aplumb. Rendered in natural stone and true stucco exterior, with deep plaster wall interiors, the solid-as-a-rock home was created by a plaster industry executive who built it to last - and also with artful appeal. Even the dining room ceiling showcases a one of a kind sculptural relief by one of his Old Word craftsmen- simply amazing. The current owners have added gorgeous landscapes and hardscapes to compliment the homes' immense architectural appeal outside. Inside, the highlights of their many recent improvements include: a new luxury kitchen opening to fabulous family room, and the new panoramic-view year-round sunroom beyond; new primary bath with expanded his and her closetry; updated secondary baths; temperature-controlled wine cellar; and more! Current owners also installed a beautiful cement-infused tile roof to last the decades, and updated mechanicals. From the gracious high-ceilinged terrazzo marble-floored foyer... to the grandly-proportioned living and dining rooms...to the immense bedrooms, all with walk-in closets with built-ins...to the large handsome study off the master wing, with built-ins and bath (which could be 6th bedroom)....to the kitchen wing bedroom/exercise room with bath...your experience here will be one of treasure found. Augmented by the beauty and privacy of the adjacent Knollwood Country Club grounds, this large acreage property is a haven of peace and relaxation, conveniently located to stores, restaurants and other Lake Forest amenities - including its award-winning beach, parks and schools. Come, explore and enjoy this Grand Ranch, like no other.
