Lake Forest

Designed by Edwin H. Clark in 1930 for his client, Frank G. Reynolds, a Chicago real estate mogul. The red brick estate is classic in design and sits on 5.24 lush acres which overlooks the Lake Forest Open Lands, Skokie River Nature Preserve. The grand nature of the home is exhibited by the large rooms and tall ceilings. From the coin molding in the living room, the terrazzo flooring in the enclosed porch and the knotted pine paneling in the library, an elegant and sweeping staircase make this home unique. A large master suite with his and her baths and dressing rooms, 7 additional bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths are perfect for today's family. Pure in its style and detail from its origins, this house is ready for the new owners vision and energy. A 3 car attached garage is another one of the many surprises here.
