Property Description

Beautifully updated by Megan Winters in 2014, this home defines warmth, elegance and luxury. Located east of Sheridan Road on one of east Lake Forest's most beautiful streets, this sun-filled 5,500+sq ft home is perfectly sited on 1.19 acres with gorgeous views. Features include a new $140,000 1" thick cedar shake roof with new copper roofs, flashings, gutters and downspouts, a stunning curved staircase, high ceilings, hardwood floors, a family room with views of the breath-taking grounds and a wonderful floor plan with sun-filled rooms and large bedrooms. The Burmeister gourmet kitchen with stone countertops, custom cabinetry, a large island, and stainless steel high-end appliances make cooking a joy! The breakfast room with fireplace and built-in desk complete this amazing kitchen. The 2nd floor has 5 bedrooms with newly renovated bathrooms, white cabinetry and marble countertops. The gracious master suite includes a fireplace, updated master bath with a marble shower, 2 vanities, a spa tub and 2 large closets. The entire family will enjoy the 3,100 square foot full, expansive basement with high ceilings and room for everyone. The attached 3.5 car garage is a plus with a room on the 2nd floor for storage or future finished space with a seperate exterior entrance. The 3rd floor is accessible via a wide staircase and provides ample storage space or room for expansion if desired! Must see to truly appreciate all that this fabulous home has to offer. Perfection!
