Description

Walter Frazier designed this exceptional multi-structure estate in 1970, setting it high on the property to take advantage of the views of colorful meadows and gorgeous sunsets to the west. Known for his refined elegance in style, the red-brick five-part structure has a central Palladian pavilion and Georgian entry with a central block and two perfectly balanced one-story wings. The grand hallway welcomes you and centers the symmetrical floorplan with an elegant floating staircase. This one-owner home (8,577 square feet) features 16 graciously sized rooms which includes a minimum of 6 bedrooms and 4.3 baths. The first-floor primary wing has a flexible arrangement of rooms currently utilized as a main bedroom (with fireplace), two spacious dressing rooms, an abundance of closet space (here and throughout the entire home) and a private office. Three additional fireplaces are placed in the 10-foot ceilinged living room, cherry paneled library and family room. All of the main beautifully proportioned rooms have an abundance of southern light through floor to ceiling glass doors, merging the landscape with the interior and providing unobstructed views to the yard and future pool. High quality building standards were utilized throughout much of the home including Ludowici tile roof, concrete construction, Phase 3 electric, and 16 zones HVAC. The outbuildings reflect the same classic hierarchy of form and sophistication as does the main home. There is a charming, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath caretakers' cottage; an additional outbuilding with garages, workroom, kennels, attic storage and 2 rooms of vaulted ceilinged living space with 1/2 bath and kitchenette; and a separate 3 car garage (for a total of 7+ spaces). Included in the 9 acres is a 5-acre conservation area managed by LFOLA, with access to the Derwen Mawr Nature Preserve. Sited in the best of locations within Lake Forest; offering privacy, proximity to town and open lands, and a home that incorporates the natural beauty of its surroundings with interior style and comfort, it offers the next generation an incredible ownership opportunity. (Original blueprints and landscape plans are available for previewing. The rooms and square footage on the listing sheet are for the main home only; exception garage total is for entire property.)
