Surrounded by professional landscaping and mature trees, rests a home of impeccable taste and timeless quality that is located only blocks from downtown Lake Forest. Built in 2006 by Greystone Builders, the residence has been thoughtfully improved and pristinely maintained through the years by its only owner. Among its charms: a private and serene backyard appointed with a bluestone backyard patio and built-in BBQ, a beautifully finished "English Basement" and an effortlessly flowing floorplan that prioritizes family living and ease of entertaining indoors to out. As you come into the home, there is great presence created by soaring 10' ceilings, custom millwork, classic moldings, hardwood floors and an expansive view extending throughout the main level. A graciously sized dining room and formal living room with fireplace both are appointed with French doors opening onto the bluestone front porch for a wonderful al fresco experience. A private library/home office flanked by built-ins also offers connection to nature with views to the backyard. The inviting and spacious family room overlooks the backyard and opens to the classically styled kitchen with soaring ceilings, center island, a Viking double oven and range, Thermador warming drawer and Sub-Zero fridge. A convenient and spacious butler's pantry links the kitchen to the dining room - perfect for entertaining. The kitchen and breakfast room offers access to the new bluestone patio, providing a captivating outdoor setting from which to entertain friends or family amidst lush greenery and meandering flagstone paths. A mudroom, two half baths (formal and informal) and a heated 3-car attached garage complete the main level. On the second floor, you will find four bedrooms, a second-floor laundry room and abundant linen storage. Two bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath and the other bedroom has its own private ensuite bath. Adorned with a tray ceiling and traditional detailing, the primary bedroom suite is a picture of tranquility with a sitting room (or second office) and a resort-like bath with steam shower and therapeutic jet tub, dual vanities, a large walk-in closet and extra storage space. In the finished lower level, natural light floods into the entire secondary entertaining space via large finished window wells, bathing the rec room, game space and wet bar in warmth. The exercise room could also be a potential fifth bedroom with an adjacent full bath. Don't miss this truly special offering so close to everything that downtown Lake Forest has to offer!
