    Description

    Impressive Tuscan-style home in East Lake Forest, one block from Lake Michigan. This 1921 gem has been thoughtfully restored and renovated by the current owners; every surface has been upgraded while preserving the original architectural beauty. The welcoming foyer has a checkerboard marble floor and an arched doorway leading to the extraordinary living/dining room. This voluminous room has an 11' beamed ceiling, two custom limestone fireplaces with marble hearths and oak overmantels, 5" quarter sawn oak hardwood floors, and French doors open to the library and sunroom and rear terrace. The designer kitchen features white O'Brien Harris cabinetry, marble counters, backsplashes, a custom island with maple butcher block top and marble ends, Edgar Berebi hardware, Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator/freezer. Shaw bar sink, and so much more! The 2nd floor has four large bedrooms, three renovated bathrooms, and two dressing rooms, all with treetop views of the property -new oak hardwood floors were added to this level. The primary bedroom suite was renovated in 2013. It is complete with a fireplace, Bagues sconces, custom closets/doors with Berebi hardware, and a dressing room with lovely built-in dressers, shoe drawers, and a settee. The marble bath has a double vanity, wet room, and private WC. The expansive 1.45-acre lot boasts significant table land with mature trees and a lush lawn bordered by a ravine. The South Garden, with a fountain, was installed in 2019 and is a wonderful spot for Tuscan-style outdoor dining and entertaining. Elm Tree is not a "through" street at the ravine, so this location is truly a private oasis.
