Property Description

Email me for a link to a narrated video tour that was made for an international client. This faithfully restored 1872 historic home, with Preservation Award, comes with a unique 4-sided sun-filled wraparound porch, and seeks new custodians. It is located on the corner of East Illinois Road and Rosemary Road, sitting between Market Square and Lake Michigan, and is minutes from the coveted Lake Forest schools. The house makes for a perfect home office and offers desk escapes to the nearby beach, harbor, Open Lands, and award-winning Deer Path Inn. You will love the open-plan kitchen with maple wood countertops, the expansive lawns with family and friends, and relaxing in a double hammock under the canopy of mature oak trees. Downtown Chicago and O'Hare are only 30 miles away. It has recently undergone an extensive 2-year inside/out restoration, including a new cedar roof, painted cedar siding, copper gutters, Farrow & Ball paint, new fireplace, hardwood floors, upstairs carpet, and more. All exterior improvements come with a transferable 10 year warranty. Move-in ready, but awaits your finishing touches.
