Lake Forest

The home exudes classic elegance and is thoughtfully designed throughout for modern living. From fine millwork to glistening hardwood floors to the Andersen windows and doors, no detail was overlooked in the amazing transformation of this home. The high-end details and amenities are enriched by the intrinsic quality of construction. Graciously sized rooms are well suited for entertaining, while offering wonderfully intimate spaces. Adding to the warmth in the home are three large full masonry fireplaces with gas starts that feature detailed custom milled mantles. The unsurpassed gourmet kitchen blends efficiency and beauty.

This ideal culinary space features extensive custom cabinetry, hand selected black granite with an antique finish, high-end appliances, a double sided farmers’ sink, designer lighting, and an expansive granite island with breakfast bar. The sundrenched breakfast room with a vaulted handcrafted bead board ceiling is the perfect extension of the kitchen and opens to the backyard vistas. Additional first floor amenities include a custom dining room breakfront with recessed lighting, an elegant butler’s pantry with a stainless steel wine fridge and sink, a stunning full bathroom and a lovely powder bathroom with antique cabinetry, a large mudroom with slate flooring and custom lockers, and an incredible laundry room designed by a professional organizer with a planning desk, storage, and workspace. The master suite surpasses the need for quiet relaxation.

The exquisite marble bathroom was inspired by The Peninsula in Chicago and features separate vanities and a steam shower. Enter the private master office through French doors to enjoy the cozy fireplace and backyard views. Three additional large family bedrooms and two full luxury bathrooms complete the second floor. The finished lower level was expanded during the renovation to include a second family room, fifth bedroom, full bathroom, game room, and additional storage space.
