Simply fabulous! Style, luxury and comfort define this wonderful east Lake Forest home, just three blocks from Lake Michigan. Renovated and expanded by the esteemed design-build firm, Lake Forest Landmark Development, it boasts over 7,200 sq ft of the most sublime level of finish you will find. Sited on 1.45 acres with a backdrop of a gently sloping ravine, the home is in harmony with its natural surroundings. The two story foyer unveils a light palette and elegant design with generous white millwork and rich hardwood flooring. The foyer opens to the formal living room with fireplace and wall of windows with views of the magnificent ravine. The beautifully appointed dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, a crystal globe chandelier, Fromental silk wallpaper and French doors for privacy. The Christopher Peacock kitchen is a showplace with ideal work space for the family chefs! The abundant white cabinetry is adorned with substantial satin nickel hardware, black walnut drawer liners and Carrara marble countertops with double edges.

Note the hand hewn, wide plank hardwood floors that extend from the kitchen into the informal eating area and spacious family room with fireplace. These rooms have access to the outdoor stone paved terraces.
