A premier location in Lake Forest's Deerpath Hill Estates neighborhood near the heart of town, which was planned and overseen by Stanley D. Anderson. In this stunning transformation of a 1920s southern Colonial mansion, classic and new have been married to masterful perfection. Thoughtfully, tastefully, and extensively renovated over the years by the present homeowners, the house has retained its character as a classic estate while adding modern-day luxury amenities. Beautiful hardwood floors throughout, impeccable millwork, tall ceilings, original fireplace mantles, custom designer lighting and wall coverings blend with a remodeled kitchen and baths to infuse the entire home with a sense of refinement that is forever timeless yet refreshingly current. A floorplan of 5,397 square feet flows effortlessly from room to room, with many spaces overlooking the private park-like grounds that surround the property. A grand foyer leads to the formal living and dining rooms. Wide French doors from both formal spaces open to a beautiful and bright garden room with french limestone floors, exposed brick walls and expansive views of the outdoors. A perfect room for Chicago weather-the many windows get you close to nature in the wintertime and welcome you outside in the summertime on the bluestone terrace. The visionary gourmet kitchen features a massive 12'-2" marble island with seating and storage as its centerpiece, striking fireplace, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, custom cabinetry with Caesarstone Quartz countertops, thoughtfully designed storage and a conveniently positioned butler's pantry with wine fridge. In the family room, custom built-ins flank the one-of-a-kind fireplace as picture windows provide views to the backyard and casual dining space. A beautifully paneled original Stanley D. Anderson study is tucked away at the east end of the house with doors leading out to the garden room-a wonderful and private space for working from home. Completing this level: two powder rooms and a mudroom with access to the attached garage. Front and back staircases lead upstairs to six nicely sized bedrooms, three full bathrooms and thoughtful bespoke built-in linen & storage closets. The primary suite doubles as a five-star retreat-including a luxurious bedroom with a tray ceiling, french doors and a Juliet balcony with wrought iron railing overlooking the gardens below. The dressing room with custom built-ins is equipped with space for everything. A stunning spa bath sheathed in floor-to-ceiling marble with an expansive shower, soaking tub, double vanity and radiant heated floors will make you feel like you are in a luxury hotel. Below, a finished basement space contains a large bonus recreation room with a fireplace, laundry room, tons of storage and is plumbed for a bath. The homeowners breathed new life into this historic home with careful thought, attention to detail and high-quality appointments. All-new mechanical systems, plumbing, electrical, extensive waterproofing, windows, insulation and more brought the home fully into the 21st century. The result of their efforts and investment can be seen both inside and out. The backyard was restored to its original 1928 glory by the brilliant Craig Bergmann with multiple Bluestone terraces surrounded by perennial flower beds, boxwood parterre gardens, lush lawn, and soaring trees. As you sweep around to the front yard with its circular drive and towering trees, you may catch another glimpse of the elegant brick facade, striking restored columns that anchor into a new bluestone porch. A few steps from acres of Open Lands with picturesque trails. Nothing about this house is ordinary. Everything about this house is extraordinary. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime offering.
