This is the chance of a lifetime to own the most majestic 3.5 acre "in town" Lake Forest estate while still being very secluded with long driveway & gated entrance hidden off Green Bay Road. Adler & Cobbs captured timeless architecture that created the ultimate private country club living destination. English walled gardens with reflection pond & limestone doomed gazebo welcome you to the pebbled motor courtyard. Off in the distance, the gated pool area is reminiscent of what you would expect to see at a boutique European hotel with Adler pool house, accented with statues & tiered limestone patios. Adjacent tennis court with warming hut can easily be transformed to a magnificent space for a summer party under the stars. Formally called the Pembroke Lodge, this now 30 rm estate with 8 beds even features a 2-story primary suite inspired directly from Caesars Palace. As you enter the formal foyer, the grandeur of this home is instantly felt with soaring ceilings, incredibly large formal rooms designed to accommodate grand gatherings, intimate get-togethers, & everything in between. Spectacular details such as custom crown moldings, endless French doors, streaming sunlight & vistas of the lush rolling green grounds from nearly every room. This entire floor is designed to support the treasured events of daily life as well as extravagant celebrations. Shoot a game of pool in the billiards rm, unwind in the hand-carved pine living room with intricate millwork or dine beautifully in formal dining rm with private bar area. Kitchen is large an expansive kitchen with separate eating and catering alcoves that has all the right space for something new.
