This stately brick home is beautifully situated on .69 acres in East Lake Forest. The professionally landscaped property is accented by mature trees and bluestone patios. Designed and built by Gene Martin, the finely crafted home exudes warmth and sophistication throughout. Tall ceilings on the first and second floors add to the sense of grandeur, while large arched windows and glass doors bathe the home in light and accentuate the beauty of the private setting.

The circular foyer provides entry to the richly paneled library, living room, and dining room. The bright kitchen is well planned for efficient cooking with ample cabinetry and counter space, an island and breakfast bar, and a built-in planning desk. The kitchen is adjacent to the butler’s pantry and opens to a sunny breakfast room. Enjoy panoramic views of the backyard through the wall of windows and doors in the family room. A stunning fireplace that is flanked by built-in cabinetry provides another focal point for the warm family room.
