Property Description

Designed by noted architect, Edwin Hill Clark, circa 1929, this home speaks to an era of architectural integrity, superb quality, and inherent warmth and character. Boasting one of Lake Forest's most premier locations, the home is privately situated on 2.1 acres, with south facing lawn, gorgeous pool and terraces, and pristine grounds. Beautifully proportioned rooms, with exquisite detailing and craftsmanship are awe-inspiring. Everything denotes quality, from the exemplary 1920's workmanship, to the modern influences incorporated to achieve a functionality for today's active families. In 2005, Chicago architect and designer Darcy Bonner, was hired to elevate the home another level, starting with a professional grade kitchen, complete with custom wood cabinetry, top-end appliances and multiple work stations for prep and baking as well as a family breakfast room and private courtyard patio. In step with the family's long tradition of entertaining, a terrific family great room was added off the kitchen area. This exceptional, two-story room features beamed ceilings, gorgeous windows, handsome built-in cabinetry and an impressive fireplace. There is room for a large dining table allowing all to gather on a more casual basis. On the second floor, the master bedroom is a fitting retreat and provides a gas fireplace, built-in cabinetry, lovely bath and a large dressing area with ample closet space. Four additional family bedrooms, all have unique personalities and each include a private bath. There is a fifth bedroom on this level, or bonus room/playroom that also provides a private bath and study room. The nicely outfitted third floor includes a full kitchen, bath, living room and three bedrooms. A perfect, private environment for a live-in or long term guest. There is a lovely guest bedroom suite on the first floor also. The lower level is a special amenity, with remarkable space. To begin, a sport court, with high ceiling, padded flooring, and lot of room to play! There is an impressive wine cellar, an exercise area, media room, workshop, industrial laundry and lots of storage! Once outdoors, you will enjoy the sun-filled pool and terrace area. Tucci umbrellas provide a bit of shade when needed. There is a large dining and lounging area, a seating area with gas firetable and firebowls, a playground area, and a true firepit for a dessert of s'mores. 611 E. Woodland provides a private environment with the atmosphere of an old European country retreat. This is a grand residence that beckons family and friends to gather in comfort and tranquility.
