272 S Sheridan Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045
A charming circular drive is your first introduction to the stately stucco and stone exterior rising over 1.7 private acres. Poulton is known for his rich detailing, and this one-of-a-kind home represents his homage to traditional craftsmanship, authentic materials, and hand-touched elements that were celebrated by the Arts and Crafts movement. Stunning millwork, hand-carved pillars, and wood beams, dynamic ceiling architecture, intricate stonework, artisan windows, radiant heat flooring, and six fireplaces create a warm and unforgettable ambiance inside the 4,803 square-foot interiors. Four bedrooms, including a serene first-floor master suite with a spa-like bath, are spacious and private. There is a four-season sunroom overlooking the lush, beautiful grounds that were artfully designed and manicured by Rocco Fiore & Sons. In the lower level, the richly designed wine cellar and tasting room are accented by Old Chicago antique brick walls and terra cotta brick tile flooring by Ann Sacks. The expansive unfinished area offers many opportunities with 11' ceilings and plumbed for a bath. A fully restored vintage log cabin lies just beyond the main residence with dramatic ravine views and comes with a kitchen, two bedrooms, full bathroom, and laundry. All of the furniture and contents of the cabin are included in the sale. Offered on the market for the first time, this incredible property has been featured in two design magazines, giving the future owner a chance to live in a home of rare architectural pedigree.
