In-town living at its finest! Not long ago, a complete renovation & transformation took place on this very East Lake Forest home maintaining the quintessential vintage character while incorporating modern amenities & sought-after luxuries. Authentic quality is abundant on all FOUR floors of finished living space with 4 bedrooms & 6 bathrooms. The front porch (with Ballard Design porch swing!) welcomes you to the front entry where you will find 9 foot tall tray ceilings, hardwood floors, crown moldings, and fresh paint throughout giving this one an updated look! The formal living room is flanked with a handsome marble surround fireplace and Hudson Valley sconces and light fixtures. Adjacent is the formal dining room with sunlight pouring in from the bay window and classic wainscotting adorning the walls. French doors lead to the high-end kitchen (WOLF / SUBZERO / FISHER PAYKEL) with NEW quartz countertops, large center island, and Restoration Hardware light fixtures. The kitchen thoughtfully connects to the mud room, the second of two first-floor powder rooms, and has an open concept feel to the breakfast room and family room. Additional French doors open to a private deck and a maintenance-free flagstone patio, perfect for grilling on summer nights. The airy staircase leads to 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths on the second floor. EVERY closet in the home has beautiful custom built-ins. The primary suite is a generous size with a walk in closet, neutral bath with separate shower/tub, double vanity, and NEW quartz countertops. Head up to the third floor! Yep, this must be the place! This bonus space makes for a great playroom or study. The finished basement features a full bath & bright laundry room with sink and white cabinetry. Need a Pelton area or gym? We have an extra DEEP-pour basement wired for T.V.'s and ready to go with a cedar sauna! This space could also serve as a golf pit, movie theater, and more, the options are endless! The two-car garage features a second story with unbelievable storage. Entertain THIS summer on this extra wide lot and host a bocce night on your own court! This is LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION - within walking distance "up"town, West Park, Starbucks, Fresh Market, Sheridan school, LF High School, Lake Forest Days/Parade, and even the beach!
