Property Description

Nestled at the end of what feels like a private road, this newer (08) home offers a well balanced space in which to live and entertain. Open plan rooms provide an elegant flow, naturally linking the rooms to one another, making the home very livable. Oversized windows throw sunlight into every corner & accentuate the hardwood floors. Fireplaces for cosy winters are everywhere. Each bedroom is en-suite, and the master boasts a fireplace, private roof terrace, and possibly the largest dressing room ever seen. 12' ceilings accommodate large art in an effortless way. Walk your dogs on Middlefork Savannah from your back door. Just minutes to Hienens & Knollwood Club, equidistant from East & West Lake Forest Metra. Schools feel like they are private. Taxes have been successfully appealed, reducing the fair market value of the home from $2.2m to $1,649,989 which will reduce the taxes.
