Lake Bluff

Ideally located between Lake Forest High School, Lake Bluff Middle School and within just several blocks of Lake Bluff's downtown, this home enjoys the benefit of a cul-de-sac street with limited traffic. Custom designed and built by Lynch Construction for the current owners, the home offers great attention to detail throughout. From the home's foyer you enter the great room with vaulted ceilings and meticulously crafted woodwork. The design is unique and true to form for this style of home. The home emulates what one may expect to find in an upscale, mountain resort destination. The great room includes wide-plank, Georgia antique pine board flooring, tall, beamed ceilings, and a hand-built floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a wall of custom crafted shelves and cabinets. It also includes an open, custom stair system that allows views from the great room of a second-floor gallery. A vacation retreat to call home year-round! The spacious kitchen is designed for entertaining. It offers a large center island and a space for larger gatherings in the comfortable dining area. The flooring is executed in a durable slate with an abundance of custom-built cabinets, many specifically designed for over-sized pots and pans. A sophisticated and high-end appliance package is included. Off the kitchen is a mud/laundry room with substantial storage space. The home employs only the highest level of finishes including Marvin Windows, heavy solid wood doors and granite countertops throughout. The first-floor master bedroom suite provides a quiet retreat from the rest of the home and includes a large, walk-in closet and a luxurious, master bath with separate stone shower and heated floors. One of the most captivating extras is the wonderful screened porch also equipped with heated floors and a custom fireplace. Suitable for every season, the porch opens to a handsome stone patio with a fire-pit. The second level includes two additional bedrooms and baths plus a multi-functional room with fireplace that could easily be transformed to a third bedroom, craft room or nursery. It is currently being used as a private office. The lower level is finished with the same, high level of detail. It offers a separate sitting room, bedroom, full-bath and much desired storage space. The basement area also includes a large, currently unfinished storage room with extensive built-in shelving and a crawl space with concrete floor. The attached garage is heated with one of the two stalls offering an oversized door and stall for larger vehicles with rooftop storage racks. The garage includes shelving and additional space for storing outdoor equipment. Contact listing agents for links to a digital brochure or video tour of this property prior to scheduling a showing.
