Set on a half an acre with plenty of room for a pool this lovely colonial has terrific curb appeal. An exceptional location on a quiet, dead-end street with convenient access to both highways, both train stations, town, lake, shopping, hospital, Elawa Farm, Open lands and all that makes Lake Forest such a special place! A bluestone sidewalk curves up to the double front doors and is flanked by columns on both sides, and by pretty diamond-paned windows. A beautiful, symetrical entrance!! The large, completely- fenced yard has a patio. It is accessed from the popular three-season porch with tile flooring and a wood ceiling. This is the favorite room. An attached 2-car garage with built- in storage units and a wide driveway make winter and extra parking a breeze. Inside, the home is light and bright. The kitchen has a large island and really nice layout. There is a lot of space in the work area, making it easy for two people to be cooking at once and your friends hanging out with you. Stainless appliances, double-bowl stainless sinks, and silestone countertops with ceramic tile flooring make it easy for clean-up. There are plenty of cabinets and a charming glass-fronted pantry closet. There is also a corner desk area. The eat-in area is large, easily holding a table and storage or serving piece. A bay window facing east sheds morning light on your breakfast. Entering the home you are greeted by a large, wide foyer which leads to a spacious and cozy family-room with wood-burning fireplace. Picture windows look out over the professionally landscaped yard. The rooms have a lovely open feeling. To the left off the foyer are spacious hall closets, a private powder room, and a large private office at the end of the hall which has triple, huge windows facing the south and another one facing east! It is a wonderful getaway space. There are built -in shelves as well as batten-board walls. It is a very private, charming, quiet spot!! The dining room has windows overlooking the back yard and is adjacent to the kitchen. The family room fireplace is visible as you dine with friends or family and is particularly comforting during the many winter nights. An enclosed sunporch(with baseboard heating) off the kitchen is where you will probably spend the most time, at least for 3 seasons! A mudroom off the garage and a separate laundry room with large, front-loading machines, sink and storage cabinets with an exterior door to the backyard is conveniently located for any muddy-type messes that may wander in. Upstairs, four really large bedrooms greet you. The primary bedroom is very ample with room for a seating area and located on a corner with windows looking to the west and south. There is a primary bath with large, glass shower, subway tile and marble topped vanity. A big closet will contain all your bathroom supplies. The second bath has a tub, subway tile, marble topped vanity and closet. The three remaining bedrooms are large and have ample closet space, the second bedroom holds twin beds with plenty of additional space and again with double closets. The basement has a large open room, currently a second television area and work-out area with high quality vinyl flooring and recessed lights, a nice versatile space. Decorated in neutral colors, this home is very welcoming and has a cozy feel.
