Newly Updated Stanley Anderson on 1.17 Acres

There is something about this distinguished brick Georgian that speaks of exceptional durability and timeless appeal. Designed by noted architect Stanley Anderson, this newly updated treasure offers the total package, with its substantial property of 1.17 acres, and its prime location in east Lake Forest within steps of the lake shore.

The handsome facade greets you with a copper portico that shelters the center front entrance which opens into a gracious foyer newly adorned with Travertine marble flooring. The interior suggests the quality of a by-gone era when houses were built to last, and exudes a traditional elegance with its freshly painted, neutral decor. Providing over 3500 square feet of functional living space, there are a total of 5 bedrooms, and 4.1 baths, with numerous windows to provide inspirational views
of the lush lawn, and wooded ravine.

Highlights include the formal living room with wood burning fireplace, and the stunning brand new kitchen with stainless appliances, fine custom cabinets, breakfast bar topped in granite, and table area overlooking the garden. In addition, there is a formal dining room for memorable entertaining, a comfortable family room integrated with the kitchen, a screened porch with new ceramic tile flooring, a spacious master suite, and a large bonus room accessed at the top of the back stair case.

New hardwood flooring, updated bathrooms, a convenient second floor laundry room, and a walk-out lower level with a bedroom, full bath, and separate entrance add to the allure of this rare offering. For those who place equal value on architectural appeal, location, and lifestyle, this home is the perfect fit.
