Lake Forest

This stone and stucco masterpiece was built with superior craftsmanship and extraordinary materials inside, outside, and in-between the walls. Hand cut stone arches accent the front porch and provide an elegant entryway into the home. The Vermont multicolor slate roof was designed with old-world craftsmanship and complemented with copper gutters, downspouts, and flashing. The home is flanked by two 2” bluestone patios that provide a gracious setting for outdoor enjoyment.

Tall custom windows allow for an abundance of natural light to enhance the warm interior of the home. A minimum of 10’ ceilings on the first floor with additional vaulted ceilings that are enhanced by handcrafted Cypress wood beams provides a feeling of grandeur throughout. A combination of outstanding stone flooring with tumbled edges and quarter sawn white oak hardwood flooring with hand scraped edges lend to an old world look and feel. The well appointed kitchen is comprised of high-end appliances, custom Burmeister cabinetry, and elegant marble and granite surfaces.

The flexible floor plan allows the home to adapt to your lifestyle. First floor highlights include a master suite, gracious sun room, expansive great room, and walnut library. The unsurpassed master bathroom features Crema Marfil marble throughout, steam shower with Grohe fixtures, whirlpool, and separate Burmeister vanities. The second floor combines two additional family bedrooms, a third bedroom/bonus room, and two luxury full bathrooms.

The full, unfinished lower level demonstrates the superb engineering and state-of-the-art technology that power the home. It also has tall ceilings, five zones of radiant heat, and is plumbed for a bathroom. The integration of quality and attention to detail throughout the home combine to form an unforgettable residence.
