The first-floor primary wing has a flexible arrangement of rooms currently utilized as a main bedroom (with fireplace), two spacious dressing rooms, an abundance of closet space (here and throughout the entire home) and a private office. Three additional fireplaces are placed in the 10-foot ceilinged living room, cherry paneled library and family room. All of the main beautifully proportioned rooms have an abundance of southern light through floor to ceiling glass doors, merging the landscape with the interior and providing unobstructed views to the yard and future pool. High quality building standards were utilized throughout much of the home including Ludowici tile roof, concrete construction, Phase 3 electric, and 16 zones HVAC. The outbuildings reflect the same classic hierarchy of form and sophistication as does the main home.

There is a charming, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath caretakers’ cottage; an additional outbuilding with garages, workroom, kennels, attic storage and 2 rooms of vaulted ceilinged living space with 1/2 bath and kitchenette; and a separate 3 car garage (for a total of 7+ spaces). Included in the 9 acres is a 5-acre conservation area managed by LFOLA, with access to the Derwen Mawr Nature Preserve. Sited in the best of locations within Lake Forest; offering privacy, proximity to town and open lands, and a home that incorporates the natural beauty of its surroundings with interior style and comfort, it offers the next generation an incredible ownership opportunity. (Original blueprints and landscape plans are available for previewing. The rooms and square footage on the listing sheet are for the main home only; exception garage total is for entire property.) The property is on the market for $5.29 million with Marcia Rowley of Coldwell Banker Realty. Video by DroNation Video Services.
