A noteworthy Lake Forest residence nestled on a five acre parcel adjacent to 26 acre Open Lands property. Often referred to as the McIlvaine Estate the home was designed by Stanley Anderson and built for the family in 1935. The home has only had four owners. Classic Georgian architecture, with symmetry and balance that is replicated on the front and rear facades.
The grand entry foyer spans the width of the home, and leads directly out to the terrace and grounds. Architectural details are irreplaceable today. Millwork is a work of art. Formal rooms are grand, yet warm and welcoming.
Exceptional updates have been made in the past two years to systems: heating, cooling, electrical, electronics, security, smart house technology, have all been brought to today’s standards and beyond. Kitchen features LaCornue range, Sub-Zero refrigerators, large island with tremendous storage and work space. Tranquil hearth room with fireplace and access to patios. Unable to list all. Exceptional.
