1080 Havenwood Lane, Lake Forest, IL 60045
Nestled in a quiet East Lake Forest setting, this timeless Georgian Revival exudes stately prominence from the street. Thoughtfully renovated over the years, the elegant manse rises on .75 acres backing up to a wooded setting, shrouding it in extraordinary privacy with mature trees protecting it. Over 6,400 square feet of living space brings together a flexible floorplan that can easily adapt to a modern family's needs with a spacious backyard for entertaining, multiple bonus rooms and a finished basement. Timelessly appointed interiors reveal dramatic high ceilings, stunning hardwood flooring throughout, fine millwork and wainscoting, coffered ceilings and other custom details. As you enter through the entryway and head up to the entry hall, you are embraced in light and warmth as a bay window in the living room/family room captures a view of the lush backyard. This space is primed for entertaining with a wet bar, built-ins, a double-sided fireplace, and access to the deck, while also leading to a spacious formal dining room. Adjacent to the living room are two generously sized rooms, which can easily flex from offices to a casual game room or second family room. Off the family room, a large breakfast room and the gracious all-white kitchen is an ode to timeless style with exquisite finishes, Wolf stainless steel appliances, and designer lighting illuminates the large center island with seating. Another set of bay windows, a fireplace, and access to the back patio create a comfortable space for hosting friends and family. There is more that awaits this level: an incredible mudroom with planning desk and dog washing station, a main floor in-law suite with a full bath, and access to an attached heated 3-car garage. Four bedrooms reside upstairs, including a sumptuous primary suite appointed with a fireplace, two walk-in closets, a spa-worthy bath with a steam shower and soaking tub, plus a balcony overlooking the backyard. A sun-lit second-floor bonus room doubles as a massive children's playroom space. The lower level has been thoughtfully finished with a golf simulator/media room, rec room, powder room, and exercise room. Two sets of stairs take you upstairs and down. Countless upgrades over the years have elevated this home, from a new generator to a new backup battery sump, whole-house air purifier, a whole house water filter, invisible fence, and more. A new trex deck installed in 2020 with a swim spa, as well as lush lawn and towering trees surrounding it give the entire property a tranquil ambiance that you will not soon want to leave.
