40 N Sheridan Road

4 Beds 4 Baths 3,588 Sq.Ft.


The genius of architect Stanley D. Anderson is apparent from the moment one enters this incredible home. Perhaps more than any other architect, Anderson is credited with creating and shaping the built environment of Lake Forest. 40 N. Sheridan Road was constructed in 1938 and is an excellent example of his work. The finished product is light and airy with sunlight streaming throughout the home. The placement of beautiful, divided light windows enhance the incredible ambience and comfort of this handsome residence. Perfectly proportioned rooms, detailed millwork and symmetric sight-lines combine to create a space that is both gracious and welcoming. The incredible kitchen features a top of the line appliance package including Sub-Zero refrigeration drawers, Wolf oven, Miele steam oven and coffee/beverage center. The elegant, primary suite includes two walk-in closets, a luxurious marble bath with both soaking tub and walk-in, spray shower. All of the bathrooms include flooring with radiant heat. Set back from Sheridan Road and sited perfectly on a half-acre lot, the outdoor living space is as beautiful as the interior. The well manicured rear lawn has privacy seldom found on a 1/2 acre lot. An abundance and variety of interesting and intentionally placed species of flowering shrubs, trees and flowers combine to create an outdoor environment that is ideal. The beautiful screened porch is equipped with a two-sided, gas fireplace. A total renovation of the home was orchestrated in 2009 by local architect Scott Streightiff that preserved the historic elements and introduced modern functionality and convenience. Relax and enjoy life in this East Lake Forest treasure!
