Lake Forest, Illinois 60045
This turn-of-the-century, gorgeous home is located in the heart of East Lake Forest and features grand entertaining spaces and a perfect, private yard. This impeccably maintained home features timeless architectural details such as leaded glass, bowed windows and doors, five warm fireplaces, beautiful millwork, and an elegant front porch. All located just steps to both historic Market Square and Lake Michigan.
The style of the home is a restrained Queen Anne with extensive interior and exterior use of carved wood. These beautiful details set this home apart from all others. There is a decorated pediment situated on the roof above the front porch entry and a matching pediment is repeated and tucked into the roof gable.
A show-stopping porch wraps around the front and western side of the house. A charming porch swing hangs in the open section of the porch. The screened portion of the porch, which is 29' by 18', can be entered from the front or through leaded glass doors from the formal living room. This screened porch is cooled by ceiling fans and green and white striped awnings. This is a wonderful summertime entertaining extension of the house.
Some of the recent updates include cedar roof replacement, comprehensive rebuild of front porch, and chimneys rebuilt.
