1080 Havenwood Lane, Lake Forest, Illinois 60045
Privately situated on a wooded lot in East Lake Forest, this stately brick home exudes warmth and sophistication throughout.
Designed and built by Gene Martin, the one owner home is finely crafted with tall ceilings, rich millwork, graciously sized rooms and a fifth bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor. The marble entryway in combination with the dramatic reverse-open staircase is a beautiful introduction to the home with cased doorways leading to all of the rooms off of the foyer. The formal powder room is fitted with luxurious Sherle Wagner sink and fixtures, and brass candlestick sconces. Great care and attention was given to the planning and placement of the intricate millwork throughout the home, which includes five piece crown molding with dentil detail, wainscoting, chair rail and picture frame molding, four custom fireplace mantels, coffered ceiling, and extensive built-in lighted bookcases and cabinetry. Tall ceilings on both the first and second floors add to the sense of grandeur, while oversized Pella windows, glass doors, and seven large bay windows bathe the home in light and accentuate the beauty of the private wooded setting. Graciously sized rooms and a thoughtful floor plan provide an ideal flow for both family living and easy entertaining with built-in speakers and hardwood flooring throughout most of the first floor. The foyer is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms with a bonus library or music room just beyond the living room. Enjoy the endless possibilities of the versatile family room with multiple areas for gathering and game play, a wet bar with a SubZero fridge, and easy access to the backyard deck. The expansive kitchen and breakfast room includes a fireplace with a hand painted tile surround, built-in planning desk, and large eat-in breakfast bay. The kitchen features an island with marble prep station, SubZero fridge, double Thermador ovens with microwave, Thermador range with electric grill, large appliance garages, and teak hardwood flooring. The adjacent butler’s pantry has a sink, extensive work space, built-in locked cabinetry for added security, and is plumbed and vented for a washer and dryer. A fifth bedroom and full bathroom complete the first floor. The elegant master suite is enhanced by a marble surround fireplace, tray ceiling, separate sitting room or study with access to a private deck, oversized walk-in closet with built-in ironing center and safe, and marble master bathroom with double vanities, separate shower, and whirlpool.
Additionally, the second floor includes three large family bedrooms, two full bathrooms, computer workstation, and large unfinished storage space. The lower level has a finished recreation room, wet bar, powder bathroom, generous laundry or craft room with built-in storage, and ample space for a workshop and storage. Other amenities of the home include front and back full staircases, heated attached three car garage with a sink and floor drains, monitored security system, dual central vacuum systems, intercom system with radio, and in-ground sprinkler system. Thoughtfully adorned with professional landscaping and exterior lighting, the natural outdoor setting is enhanced by mature trees and can be enjoyed from the expansive deck, flagstone terrace, and walking paths. The master suite has a unique way to enjoy the ravine, through an expansive three season porch. The porch extends to the great room and the library with a fireplace and custom built-in cabinetry. The second floor has four family bedrooms with individual walk-in closets and two Jack-and-Jill bathrooms. The large loft spaces are poised to capture the drama of the great room. One large loft space is ideal for study or relaxation with a built-in double desk and wall of windows. A convenient second laundry room and additional storage rooms complete the second floor. The walkout lower level is a compliment to this well planned home. It expands the opportunities for family enjoyment and has great entertaining possibilities. The elegant county club style bar with a fireplace is well proportioned and has direct walk-out access to a large bluestone patio surrounded by walled gardens with the ravine canopy overhead.
