Property Description

This classic Colonial is ideally located in east Lake Forest on coveted Maple Court. It is a quiet and peaceful cul-de-sac location. The charming 3-story center entry home has a freshly painted white frame exterior with black shutters and a cedar shake roof. It is beautifully poised on a .55 acre lot. In keeping with its style, it is functional and gracious, with high ceilings, spacious rooms and intricate period details. The wide staircases and landings offer exceptional and well-lit circulation space. The grand formal living room has an alcove workspace/reading room and an adjacent office/library. The formal dining room opens to the sunroom/office and butler's pantry. In 2009, the current owners expanded the home with a significant addition crafted by two of the area's best (designed by Witmer & Associates, built by Altounian Construction). The addition incorporated a spacious kitchen, family room with fireplace, mud room and deep-pour basement with huge recreation room, bedroom/exercise room, full bathroom with steam shower, and oversized laundry room. The kitchen has abundant white cabinetry, soapstone countertops, a Shaw's Original farm sink, a Wolf gas cooktop, stainless steel double wall ovens, a Miele dishwasher and SubZero refrigerator/freezer. In 2012, an in-ground swimming pool with depth to 8' was installed by Boilini Pools. Build your family memories in this light and bright east side treasure!
