Evoking a sense of timelessness, this stately brick residence reigns over approximately 1.1 acres in Lake Forest. The property promises tranquility at every turn with a large, private fenced backyard nestled amidst flowering bushes, mature trees and verdant open space. The home brings over 4,389 square feet of refreshed space into elegant focus with five bedrooms and three full baths on the second floor, a first floor office, plus an English basement with the sixth bedroom and fourth full bath. Recent renovations, including fresh paint throughout, new carpeting, painted built-ins, and designer lighting, ensure a move-in ready interior meant to blend with a variety of tastes and styles. An abundance of natural light floods the thoughtfully designed floorplan via tall ceilings and a striking wall of windows capturing picturesque backyard views. Tailor-made for effortless living and entertaining, the home welcomes you inside with a gracious two-story foyer, formal living room and a family room with a wet bar and sweeping white-washed brick fireplace. Additional amenities elevate the living experience: a screened porch, a garden room with a spa, a first-floor laundry room, a second-floor reading nook with built-ins, and an attached four-car garage. A large kitchen with a center island and spacious eating area provides seamless access to the back deck, perfect for outdoor gatherings. Two staircases connect to the second floor and three staircases take you to the lower level, lending additional privacy and versatility to the floorplan. From the expansive backyard to the timeless interiors and abundant amenities, this captivating property is an invitation to embrace the art of living well in a convenient area of Lake Forest. NEW roof, skylights, and gutters are in the works.
