Custom designed and built by Perkins, Fellows and Hamilton for Mrs. Cyrus McCormick in 1916, this spectacular estate is set on 3.8 wooded acres in the heart of East Lake Forest. The house most resembles an early European Manor home exemplifying elegance and grace. Entering the grounds through the handsome iron gates, one is struck by the grandeur of the house and the mature landscaping in its unique, wooded setting, hence its name "The House in the Woods". You are welcomed into the reception hall with French limestone floor, marble walls, paneled walnut ceiling and delicately carved walnut woodwork. The soft patina of the teak and rosewood floors, the handsome fireplaces, and the carved and cast motifs of animals and plants are reminiscent of a by-gone era and speak to this meticulously maintained and lovingly preserved home perfect for today's lifestyle. A fabulous floor plan including 10 bedrooms, 8 full and 4 half baths, 10 fireplaces, gracious room sizes, 10' ceilings and a heavy slate roof are just a few of the features to be noted. Views of the breath-taking backyard are evident from most of the rooms and the bluestone terrace invites you to the inground pool positioned in the southwest part of the yard. The Primary Suite with sitting room, sunroom, two fireplaces, walk in closet and private bath is luxury at its finest. Additional ensuite bedrooms, a guest wing, an elevator, a wine cellar and a basketball court are just some of the other amenities this one-of-a-kind home offers.
