A Lake Forest hidden gem. This remarkable French Norman-style country estate with coach house is situated on appx 4 beautifully landscaped and private acres that were once part of the original Albert Lasker Estate and his legendary Mill Road Farm Golf Course. A distinctive bluestone foyer welcomes you into this remarkably expanded 4 bedroom estate Home. The home features a 2.5-car attached garage, a main floor master suite elegantly appointed by a gas burning fireplace topped with a marble mantle and an attached wood-paneled office or study. A beautifully designed and large addition to the home added a vaulted and beamed ceiling kitchen, built for large gatherings and entertaining, connected to a new family room and hallway gallery. Upstairs you'll find 2 large bedrooms connected to a Jack & Jill bathroom, an incredible family or play room with a wood burning fireplace and an enormous guest or in-law suite, complete with private bathroom, sitting area and walk-in closet. The partially finished walkout basement features a professional sound/media room, recreation or exercise room, additional laundry room and full bath room. The home has a total of 4 full and 2 half baths. The coach house sits above an extra-deep, 4-car garage and includes a vaulted family room and open kitchen, large bedroom and full bath. This very private wooded retreat is enhanced by a wonderful outdoor and elevated paver brick patio, perfect for entertaining or watching tennis played on the court located on the lower terrace.
