This faithfully-restored, 5 bedroom, 3 full, and 2 half bath home with unique sun-filled 4-sided wraparound porch, seeks new custodians. Ideally-situated on the corner of Illinois and Rosemary, the house is a few minutes walk from Market Square, the beach, Deerpath Inn, and trains to downtown Chicago. It was built in 1872 and is one of the founding homes of Lake Forest. It has recently undergone a 2-year inside/out restoration, including a new cedar roof, kiln-dried painted cedar siding, copper gutters, Farrow and Ball interior paint throughout, new fireplace, refinished hardwood floors, upstairs carpet, and more. If you like to cook, you will love the beautiful open-plan kitchen with maple wood countertops. Just imagine the joy of throwing lunch and supper parties for loved ones, perhaps with children playing on the expansive lawns, or simply relaxing in a double hammock with glasses of wine in hand under the canopy of mature oak trees. Move-in ready and awaits your finishing touches.
