Welcome to 855 S Ridge Road. A rare opportunity to own a piece of Lake Forest history. This gem of a property is a project for someone looking to have a one-of-a-kind home on a great piece of land. Renovate the current floor plan, add on, or turn this into the ultimate car clubhouse. Built-in 1935 by Stanley Anderson as horse stables for the surrounding farmland and estate. Throughout the years the use has changed and the land was subdivided and the stables were converted into a hobby farm, then into a residence, and most recently into collector car storage. Sitting on 1.39 acres with a gated driveway off of Ridge road, and green grass all the way to Hunter lane, with plenty of room to add on. A large heated garage was added in 2013 and was built to house collector cars. Easily room for 6+ cars with a catwalk above makes the perfect hangout to admire a car collection from above. Bring your plans, your ideas, and your wildest imagination to this one-of-a-kind property on Ridge Road. New design renderings have just been completed and are available to turn the barn into a unique new construction residence built around the original stables.
