Description

UNDER CONTRACT Designed and built by renowned architect Jerome Cerny in 1936 as his family's residence, this south facing home is situated on a well landscaped 1/2 acre within walking distance to parks, Lake Forest Country Day and Cherokee Schools, and less than 2 miles from Lake Forest's historic Market Square. The home was inspired by the Monterey area of California with its sloping roof line and the famous Absinthe House in New Orleans with its' original pattern ironwork. The home features stunning bay windows, two fireplaces, 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, luxurious wood moldings, Dutch doors, Chinese cinnabar knobs and French locks all of which are signature features of this famous North Shore architect's eclectic style. Gardens and interiors have been significantly restored and enhanced without altering the original charm and character of the property. A gracious reception hall with curving staircase invites you into perfect entertaining spaces in the formal dining room and living room which flows out to a bluestone terrace and private perennial gardens. A bright sunroom, spacious kitchen, family room, powder room, mud room and guest suite with adjacent full bath complete the first floor. Upstairs the master suite enjoys privacy with a large en-suite master bath, large walk-in closet and french doors leading to the expansive balcony. The upper hall features circular ceiling detail with two additional bedrooms, and a bath. The lower level boasts a family room with large windows, built-in bookcases, fireplace and office space, large laundry room area with built-in cabinetry, utility sinks and plenty of storage. As this home has been lovingly restored and graciously appointed, contact agents for a comprehensive list of improvements.
