747 East Deerpath Road, Lake Forest
A limestone garden gate along Deerpath Road is a dignified entry to this stunning home which evokes Edwardian formality with pre-war Beaux-Arts fashion. The elegant Georgian, designed by Frederick Wainwright Perkins, is sited in a meadow with a South-facing terrace overlooking a ravine. The landscape design has incorporated surviving elements from the original 1860 gardens designed by Frank Calvert. A sunny, modern kitchen with white oak herringbone floors and full butler's pantry, gorgeous new baths, and the beauty of new stylish 21st century decorating - make this an extraordinary combination for today's buyer. Irreplaceable details, including a cherry paneled living room, and hand-carved Carrera marble foyer elements make this home, located East of Sheridan Road, the perfect choice for a buyer looking to own a piece of history with today's amenities.
