Property description
Retreat to this Enchanting Villa in prestigious Lake Forest - just 45 minutes beyond the bustling city lies "Villambroso" a picturesque mediterranean-inspired estate surrounded by nearly four acres of lush greenery and peaceful flowing ravines. Built in 1914, this 6000sqft home (and Coach House) is equal-parts rich in architecture and old-world charm yet incredibly livable and manageable in size. Designed by architect Edwin Clark (Brookfield Zoo) keen attention to detail throughout the homes interior and exterior all tell a story of centuries past. Restored in 2003 and updated in 2018 the storybook home features a pebble and cobblestone circular drive, front courtyard, an overhanging balcony with water fountain, solid stucco facade and terra-cotta clay roof. Pass-through arched entry doors to the majestic dual-staircase entry foyer. Main level includes a fireside formal dining room, both formal and family living areas, a wood-adorned office and library, and custom kitchen and prep room and bright sunroom overlooking the rear yard gardens. Upper level features four bedrooms and media room, each with attached bathrooms, a romantic main bedroom with sitting and dressing room, ornate vintage detailed baths, lighting, custom closets and window treatments. Lower level partially finished with 800+ bottle wine cellar, additional storage and prep rooms. Sip on wine, entertain and feast on meals alfresco overlooking a 60ft deep lot perfectly plush with fire-pit. Additional coach house studio with full bathroom and two car detached garage. Nearby Lake Michigan, own a piece of history, dazzle family and friends, and start living your fairytale now.
