Incredible space inside and out with great light, the finest finishes, and an exceptional piece of land in a coveted location make this Lake Forest property an absolute must-see. Four bedrooms and five full baths are offered in 7,012 square foot of beautifully designed living space, with 1.46 acres of private park-like grounds to savor. The Cape Cod-style home, which has been expanded and updated to fully realize its exceptional potential with stunning views of a vast expanse of grass, rich professional landscaping, and heirloom oak trees. The newer arbor sits at the end of the long driveway as a gateway to the remarkable yard. You'll love the office off the receiving room and the formal living room with see-through, double-sided fireplace and bay windows overlooking the grounds. On the other side of that fireplace is a lovely formal dining room with double French doors leading to the outdoors. The immense family room provides the ideal informal gathering space, with a wall of built-ins, Surround Sound, beams highlighting the soaring ceilings, and another fireplace flanked by French doors overlooking the verdant back yard. This leads into a comfortable den, with the gourmet kitchen and breakfast room just beyond. High-end appliances, tons of cabinets with custom millwork, a large eat-in island, and a butler's pantry turn the kitchen into a showcase of style and function. The primary suite is a relaxing haven, with oversized windows that bathe the room in light and French doors providing immediate backyard access. If the beautifully equipped primary bath, with its dual vanities, makeup station, walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, and sauna don't take your breath away, the boutique-style dressing room certainly will. Straight out of a magazine, this space features built-ins with full-height glass doors, numerous deep drawers, and a huge center storage dresser. Upstairs, you have the flexibility to turn an expansive bonus space into a kids' playroom, additional office, studio, or rec room. This home also includes Smart features including Nest thermostats and updated lighting, a four-car attached garage, and two basements - one finished with secondary laundry, a large cedar closet, a rec space, and a bonus office or craft room, and a second unfinished space with high ceilings and tons of possibilities. Outside, the vast grassy yard beckons, while mature trees create a secluded setting. The spectacular grounds have been made even more special with a makeover that added an in-ground spa, a large bluestone patio with outdoor kitchen and fire pit, and a beautiful berm at the back of the property that further enhanced the serenity.
