This idyllic three acre setting is rarely found in east Lake Forest. Surrounded by towering mature trees and bordering a ravine to the east, this private vintage estate property is the perfect retreat. The striking stucco and stone English manor home was designed by the highly regarded estate architect, Russell Walcott. An extensive interior and exterior renovation meticulously restored the vintage details throughout the home and earned the Lake Forest Preservation Foundation Historic Restoration Award in 2004. The property also includes a separate two-bedroom and one-bath renovated coach house, an in-ground pool and a pool house with dual changing rooms/baths, great room and kitchen.The stucco exterior of the home is thoughtfully accented by stone detailing. The classic Ludowici clay tile roof was replaced on both the main house and the coach house in 2001, and the original copper leader heads were restored and reinstalled. The renovated kitchen was designed to complement the original aesthetics of the home, while providing the necessary amenities for modern day needs. Classy and timeless, the kitchens carrera marble countertops beautifully complement the white custom built-in cabinetry and fine millwork. Features include built-in dual Sub Zeros, two Miele dishwashers and an impressive Viking 60 custom range with double ovens, six burners and a large griddle complete with a wall mounted pot filler faucet on the tile backsplash.
