This idyllic three acre setting is rarely found in east Lake Forest. Surrounded by towering mature trees and bordering a ravine to the east, this private vintage estate property is the perfect retreat. The striking stucco and stone English manor home was designed by the highly regarded estate architect, Russell Walcott. An extensive interior and exterior renovation meticulously restored the vintage details throughout the home and earned the Lake Forest Preservation Foundation Historic Restoration Award in 2004.
