3 minutes from Lake Forest Hospital. Meander down O'Leary Lane, through towering oaks, to the gorgeous surprise that awaits! This gracious home is tucked away well off the street on nearly 2 wooded, private acres, within a quiet and serene park-like setting. Relax with a cool drink on the expansive front porch and you'll feel like you're on vacation in the country-and yet, it's just minutes from everything Lake Forest and Lake Bluff have to offer. Built in 1920, this historic house (originally the gardener's cottage for Knollwood Farm) has been greatly expanded over the years to accommodate today's most sought-after lifestyle: bright, sun-filled rooms (including a 1st floor master), peaceful and bucolic, surrounded by nature through the abundant windows. Over $300,000 in improvements the past two years, adding to the home's utility and sophistication. The total three bedrooms, three and a half baths, with large bonus room and ample storage make this home a perfect "right-size" house.
