Property Description

Distinctive IN-TOWN estate perfection! This beautifully crafted home is situated on almost 2 acres of land in East Lake Forest. Secluded, grand, and unique, this home boasts wonderful indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. Designed by architect Knight Cowles, the home has gone through extensive interior and exterior renovations, while retaining the classic, contemporary design and Beaux Art/Art Deco character of the original home and seamlessly incorporating all the modern luxuries, space, and amenities you would expect in a home of this caliber. You enter into a gracious circular foyer with stunning views from every angle. The home has 6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 2 half baths along with an attached 3 car, heated garage. The light filled main floor of the house has ample space for hosting guests. Whether that be in the grand living room, formal dining room, or sun drenched four seasons patio with palladium windows on all three sides. There are exquisite and timeless architectural details in every room, including custom millwork, soaring ceilings, beautiful fireplace surrounds, oversized windows throughout and much more. The contemporary designer chef's kitchen has high-end appliances, and an ideal open floor plan with breakfast room/family room with an abundance of light and a south-facing wall of glass doors that overlook the pool, spa, and breathtaking yard and gardens. Additionally, there is a formal and informal powder room, large butler's pantry with wet bar, wine refrigerator and built-in cabinetry, and spacious mudroom. And not to be missed, the beautiful circular African Mahogany formal library with incredible built-in bookshelves and wood-burning fireplace. The second floor boasts the primary suite with two bathrooms and 3 additional bedrooms, which all have generous closets and en-suite baths; all are accessible from the front or back staircases. Two additional bedrooms, a full bath and a spacious, convenient laundry room with built-in cabinets throughout. The third floor offers a cedar closet, additional storage and extra space to use at your discretion. The lower level features a recreation room, wine room, and even more storage! Additional spaces are ready for a workout room, media room, craft/hobby area, office and/or whatever the next owner wants or needs. In the backyard is a well-situated, octagon shaped, bluestone in-ground pool and year-round spa and a lovely bluestone patio. Tucked away is a guest cottage with a sitting room/bedroom, wood-burning fireplace, bathroom, and kitchenette for company to retreat to, and for those with a green thumb, there is a fully functioning green house to grow your greens and veggies all year round. Last, but not least,.... don't miss the Craig Bergman designed front courtyard and the perfectly, Mariani maintained gardens, including a rose gardens, 15 mature oak trees, a reflecting pond and an abundance of boxwood that were grown on site! Truly a hidden retreat that is more than just a home, and only steps away from downtown Lake Forest, parks, schools, Open Lands, Metra train, and Lake Michigan. One of a kind!
