Description for 1000 E Illinois Road Lake Forest, IL 60045
A rare combination of a private setting and gracious residence with separate coach house/garage. Accessed through matching pillars flanking the entrance drive, the beautiful 3.81-acre property is nested between 2 ravines. There are lovely gardens on the property, including a sculpted boxwood garden just off the terrace. 4 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, originally built in the early 1900's, designed by Otis and Clark, with a continental villa flair. The architectural detail and quality construction remain today. Prominent among the outstanding features are glorious room sizes, high ceilings and a flowing floor plan. The bridal staircase, majestic fireplaces, arched windows and tiffany windows are vintage architectural details which remain favorites today. Twenty-first Century renovations reflect current lifestyle desires, both for daily living and elegant entertaining. An owner who desires to work at home part of the week will treasure the coach house/office just steps from the main house.
