Lake Forest

"That's my favorite house in Lake Forest" is the refrain referring to the "petite estate" designed by Harry Howe Bently in 1924. Authentic French doors and fireplaces, moldings, leaded glass window, arched lannonstone front entry, herringbone brick and hardwood floors, hand-hewn beamed ceiling, imported French tile, hobnailed oak plank flooring, and Zuber mural wall depicting French Indo-China, are just a few of the original superb details that make Windbreak House special. The 2008 addition of a 2 ½ car garage, mudroom, command center, laundry room, family room, kitchen and breakfast room has taken this jewel box into the new millennium. Luxurious 4 room master bedroom suite with his and her baths and dressing rooms offer grandeur and convenient amenities. The coach house over the 1 ½ car garage has a private access. On .80 acres featuring award winning gardens, within walking distance to the train, this distinguished home is an important part of Lake Forest history.
