Ideally located between Lake Forest High School, Lake Bluff Middle School and within just several blocks of Lake Bluff's downtown, this home enjoys the benefit of a cul-de-sac street with limited traffic. Custom designed and built by Lynch Construction for the current owners, the home offers great attention to detail throughout. From the home's foyer you enter the great room with vaulted ceilings and meticulously crafted woodwork. The design is unique and true to form for this style of home. The home emulates what one may expect to find in an upscale, mountain resort destination. The great room includes wide-plank, Georgia antique pine board flooring, tall, beamed ceilings, and a hand-built floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a wall of custom crafted shelves and cabinets. It also includes an open, custom stair system that allows views from the great room of a second-floor gallery. A vacation retreat to call home year-round! The spacious kitchen is designed for entertaining. It offers a large center island and a space for larger gatherings in the comfortable dining area. The flooring is executed in a durable slate with an abundance of custom-built cabinets, many specifically designed for over-sized pots and pans. A sophisticated and high-end appliance package is included. Off the kitchen is a mud/laundry room with substantial storage space. The home employs only the highest level of finishes including Marvin Windows, heavy solid wood doors and granite countertops throughout. The first-floor master bedroom suite provides a quiet retreat from the rest of the home and includes a large, walk-in closet and a luxurious, master bath with separate stone shower and heated floors. One of the most captivating extras is the wonderful screened porch also equipped with heated floors and a custom fireplace. Suitable for every season, the porch opens to a handsome stone patio with a fire-pit. The second level includes two additional bedrooms and baths plus a multi-functional room with fireplace that could easily be transformed to a third bedroom, craft room or nursery. It is currently being used as a private office. The lower level is finished with the same, high level of detail. It offers a separate sitting room, bedroom, full-bath and much desired storage space. The basement area also includes a large, currently unfinished storage room with extensive built-in shelving and a crawl space with concrete floor. The attached garage is heated with one of the two stalls offering an oversized door and stall for larger vehicles with rooftop storage racks. The garage includes shelving and additional space for storing outdoor equipment. Contact listing agents for links to a digital brochure or video tour of this property prior to scheduling a showing.

Wow... a rare opportunity to own a piece of East Lake Forest history! Recognized by the Lake Forest Historical Preservation Foundation, this enchanting 4 bedroom 2.1 bath Chicago-style bungalow has been continually restored and updated with historically significant materials. Nestled on a pristinely manicured lot on quiet Wildwood Road, this beauty is adorned with Artisan ceramic tile shingles formerly extracted from the Walden Estate dating back to 1913. These hand made tiles were placed on the house in 2000 by architect Dan Sutherland as part of a 3 year complete renovation that included additions to the front and back of the house, as well as new electrical and plumbing. Many vintage features including original red oak floors, beautiful 8in crown molding, and double hung windows with storms and screens seasonally still remain, along with updates for today's living that make this home a perfect blend of charm and function. New in last 6 months are Whirlpool stainless steel kitchen appliances, new LG washer & dryer and new basement toilet. Many rooms freshly painted in today's popular and neutral grey tones. Romantic primary bedroom has cozy sitting room with beautiful architectural windows and two spacious closets. 2nd floor loft area offers a great playroom adjacent to the two other upstairs bedrooms. Roomy first floor bedroom could double as a WFH office. Basement has an open design with many windows with great space featuring a mud room, playroom, laundry area , powder room, storage, and even a separate workshop and Costco supply room. An architecturally designed brick paver walkway leads you from the main house through the manicured gardens to an incredible elevated 500sq ft clubhouse, a surprise oasis above the custom 2.5 car garage, constructed in 2000. A forever gathering spot for holiday festivities or just relaxing among the tree tops in this enormous and airy 3 seasons hide away complete with vaulted ceiling and interchangeable window panes and screens. Truly a special home that is close to South Park and only one mile from Forest Park Beach and Downtown Lake Forest!
