New Price! An idyllic location blocks from Lake Michigan to the East and Market Square to the West, neighboring some of Lake Forest's most prominent estates and summer cottages. English country-inspired home that offers relaxed elegance, synonymous with its Jerome Cerny design. This 1955 sprawling red brick Cape Cod is situated on .57-acres and is set back from the road. The home is buffered by a stand of mature trees and a motor court. The parcel is framed by picture-perfect landscaping. One is greeted by a formal courtyard and garden. Renovated and expanded by Traditional Concepts, it features a harmonizing display of neutrals, delicate plasterwork, elegant moldings, and custom millwork. It boasts hardwood oak flooring and nearly 9ft ceilings throughout most of the main level. The welcoming foyer opens to the formal living room with large windows that provide views of the front garden and a pretty bay window that looks onto the bluestone patio and rear yard. A beautiful wood-burning fireplace and a wall of bookcases are the focal points of this room. The dining room features a crystal chandelier, chair rail of decorative plaster, and access to the rear yard from the French door. Adjacent is a library with paneled walls. The kitchen features off-white custom cabinetry, a large island with a black suede granite top with seating for two, a tumbled marble backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and travertine floors. The kitchen opens to the family room with a tray ceiling, a masonry fireplace with gas logs, and two walls of French doors overlooking the yard and patio. Adjacent to the kitchen is a wet bar with an ice maker, pantry, powder room, laundry room, and access to a two-car garage. The home has two en suite bedrooms on the main level and two tandem bedrooms that share a bathroom on the second level. The 1st floor primary bedroom features two spacious custom walk-in closets, a deluxe bathroom with double sinks, a separate soaking tub, and a steam shower.
