Property Description

Stunningly beautiful estate that rivals any resort! Completely updated & improved inside and out by the current homeowners, this amazing property checks all of the boxes. With over 17,000 sq. ft. of finished living space across four floors, the house features 7 en suite bedrooms, 8 full & 4 half bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen w/ multiple islands & eating areas, a large family room w/ soaring cathedral ceiling, 1st floor library/office (with an option for a 2nd office), an elevator, 2 laundry rooms, luxurious finishes & amenities throughout, Three 2-car, heated garages, and an amazing lower level that includes a 2nd kitchen, bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, theater area, 2nd family room, exercise room, and wine cellar. Outside, the resort-like amenities continue w/ a large terrace that contains an in-ground pool, a large, separate spa, an outdoor kitchen, a lovely fountain & pergola w/ fireplace, retractable shades and Brazilian Ipe wood flooring. The grounds also feature a firepit, multiple seating areas, a gazebo overlooking the aerated, stocked pond, multiple fire features, and a circular, brick driveway. A major remodel in 2007-2009 added the 3rd floor, two new bedrooms & full bathrooms, a 2nd floor laundry room, the elevator, all new hardwood floors, all new doors, a Control4 sound system, and touched just about every space of the home, including: a completely new kitchen w/ custom cabinetry throughout, all new appliances including multiple islands, multiple sinks, two dishwashers, and a Wolf 60" range w/ 6-burners, griddle & 2 ovens; a re-design of the primary bathroom w/ the addition of custom cabinetry, a steam shower, spa, a 2nd walk-in closet, and dry bar; the new cabana room that serves as a pool room and has radiant heat flooring, a fireplace, and a half bathroom; a redesign of the lower level that added a bedroom, an exercise room, and full bathroom, and a bar area; updating all of the 1st floor bathrooms, converting all fireplaces to gas logs, adding the beautiful chandelier in the foyer (w/ lift); and so much more! Additional improvements since then include installing LED lights on the 1st floor, installing a projection screen in the lower level, updating the full bathroom in the lower level, upgrading/installing wifi boosters throughout the home, rebuilding the gazebo out of TimberTek recyclable materials, replacing the spa heater, and installing a 2nd pergola. This amazing property is undoubtedly one of the premier homes in Lake Forest and offers a lifestyle that exceeds even the most discerning expectations. Must be seen to be truly appreciated!
