This picture-perfect brick traditional is stately inside and out. Elegant, welcoming, and perfectly located for fine family living, the five-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath, 5,436-square-foot home presents a unique opportunity to own an updated classic on a picturesque, 1.43-acre park-like homesite in a highly coveted neighborhood. The elegant foyer introduces many of the home's fine finishes, including rich hardwoods and crown molding. The formal living room with fireplace opens to a gorgeous formal dining room, where a wall of windows affords views out to the verdant backyard. The bonus sunroom is the perfect place to relax with the family or gather with friends while you relish the natural light spilling in. The newly updated and upgraded kitchen features a center island, two-tone cabinetry, sleek Quartzite countertops, double ovens, and huge breakfast bar. A butler's pantry adds ample counter and storage space and the adjacent breakfast room awaits casual meals while allowing immediate access to the outdoor oasis. In the expansive, light-filled family room, a fireplace is flanked by built-ins and two walls of glass provide connection with the outdoors. Access to the spacious private library is hidden by the family room paneling. A full bath on the main level would make an ideal pool bath if a swimming pool is added to the immense backyard. Upstairs, bedrooms are graciously sized and beautifully finished, starting with the luxe primary suite. This designer space offers intricate moldings, leafy views, and a chic, newly renovated spa bathroom with large glass shower, custom-built cabinetry, and premium finishes. In addition to the five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, the second floor includes a convenient loft/den/bonus/homework area overlooking the backyard. On the lower level, a deep-pour, unfinished basement is ready to be turned in to the entertainment mecca of your dreams. This space is so large, it could easily accommodate a golf simulator, theater, gym, and playroom, all under ceilings so tall you'll forget you're downstairs. This home also features a new asphalt roof and three-car garage. In addition to the vast expanse of grass out back, you'll also love the bluestone patio, knot garden, and numerous trees for shaded privacy. It's like having a private park all to yourself and the opportunities for outdoor enjoyment are endless! This home's convenient location is also close to parks, restaurants and shopping, Onwentsia Golf Club, schools, and transit. This Lake Forest gem is the perfect combination of classic style and space, in the setting you love. This one is not to be missed!
