21 Pembroke Drive, Lake Forest, IL 60045
Set on 1.12 acres on a tree-lined cul-de-sac blocks from downtown Lake Forest and close to the recreation center and schools, this beautiful brick traditional offers a spectacular combination of convenience, privacy and standout features, including an open, light-filled floorplan, multi-generational living and chic design by the incomparable interior designer Megan Winters. An impressive presence from the street with a long circular driveway and sweeping front lawn beckons you inside. Classic details like rich hardwood floors and bespoke ceilings throughout set a luxurious tone as light spills through the interiors. The foyer introduces a sophisticated gallery space, formal living room and expansive formal dining room with its elegant bay window. But it's the open concept family room space where Megan Winters' timeless style truly shines with joyful pops of color, custom wall coverings and designer lighting, beamed ceilings. The fashionable and functional kitchen impresses with dual islands, two dishwashers, double gas range and ovens, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and opens right into a casual dining area and family room with rich built-ins flanking a marble fireplace. French doors lead to the terrace overlooking the backyard. A first-floor primary suite is an oasis, with an immense custom walk-in closet (complete with its own washer and dryer!) and a new primary bath designed by Winters that has been outfitted with dual vanities, a deep freestanding soaking tub, and an oversized walk-in shower. Completing this level is a convenient landing space with a large mudroom, entry to the four-car attached garage, and stairs to the home's two additional floors. Upstairs, there are three generously sized bedrooms, plus two updated baths, a large second-floor laundry room, and large attic space with great potential. A fully finished, light-filled walk-out basement doubles as a multigenerational living and entertaining space with abundant windows, soaring beamed ceilings, two spacious bedrooms with shared bath, a large office space, a recreation room, second family room, sleek built-in bar, potential wine cellar or craft space, full bath and immediate access to the resort-like backyard. Shielded by mature trees, the grounds feature a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace, a large swimming pool and built-in grill, a spacious grassy area and a newly added bluestone patio with firepit - a wonderful space for outdoor living and entertaining.
