DESCRIPTION
Click Map to Enlarge
A premier East Lake Forest location a half block from the beach, this estate is the perfect year-round home and retreat. It has been upgraded with $2,000,000 of renovations and improvements. Four plus acres of table land and two ravines, including a subdividable 2 acre city approved buildable site. This is one of Lake Forest's most significant properties. The home offers an open and flexible floor plan, perfect for entertaining intimate events or meetings, but grand enough to accommodate more than 200 guests. The main floor features an expansive family room with kitchenette. Floor to ceiling windows and doors bathe the rooms in natural light. The second floor currently includes 7 ensuite bedrooms, with many built-ins. The Primary Suite includes a fireplace, custom built-ins and two separate walk-in closets and dressing rooms. There are 3 dedicated home-school and office spaces, one of which is large enough to become a media room. The turret office has a custom desk and shelves and overlooks the courtyard. A huge multi-use recreation room has special floating floors, ideal for dance or aerobics, or as a playroom or both! A pool, tennis court, firepit, a recently renovated two room cottage, lovely lush gardens, and acres of space for sports and exercise add to the outdoor amenities. Some indoor amenities include a wine cellar, wet bar, hot tub, exercise room, and dry and wet saunas. All this in one magical spot.
