Property Description

This three-story vintage home, known as the Frank W. Read House, is located in East Lake Forest in a coveted, close to town location. It is located in the East Lake Forest Historic District, but it is not a Landmark Property. This hidden treasure is situated on almost an acre of beautiful property. This home features many original details with wood floors, beautiful staircase, high ceilings, built-ins, and sun porches to enjoy the lovely yard. The water heater was replaced in 2016. This home and garage will convey "as is." This is a special opportunity as there is exciting potential here. If you love to restore and update vintage homes, this is for you!
