Spectacular private family or multi-generational compound is sited perfectly between Lake Forest's town center and open lands along the historic Green Bay Road corridor. Beautifully scaled and elegantly proportioned the main rooms feature 10 foot ceilings and are filled with southern light. The first floor primary bedroom wing is a flexible arrangement of rooms; main bedroom with fireplace, two substantial dressing rooms, walk-in closet plus additional walls of closets, an office and 1.5 baths. The first floor encompasses a living room with fireplace, cherry paneled library with fireplace, wine room and bar area, dining room, country kitchen with fireplace and walk-in pantry, utility room, storage room, two bedrooms with baths and a formal powder room. The second floor is reached from the foyer's elegant floating staircase and features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, dressing room and large walk-in closet, which would make an excellent second floor laundry area. This classic one owner estate was designed by well-known architect, Walter Frazier. Frazier perfectly sited the home on the hill to take advantage of the vistas and sunsets to the west over open lands. High quality building standards were utilized throughout, including Ludowici tile roof, concrete construction, stone and hardwood flooring, Phase 3 electric, and 16 zones HVAC. With flexibility in mind there is a charming, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath guest house; an additional outbuilding used as a retreat providing additional garage space, 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). The eastern section of the 9 acres houses all of the structures and the grounds allow for a pool to be perfectly placed to receive the sun and have stunning views of the meadows and sunsets. The western 5 acres is dedicated open conservation space and managed by Lake Forest Open Lands. Immerse yourself in nature, but be only minutes from vibrant Market Square, this one-of-a-kind location and estate is waiting for the next generation to enjoy. (Original blueprints and landscape plans are available for previewing. The main home is 8, 577 square feet, sold in trust and as is.)
