55 E Onwentsia Rd, Lake Forest
French Manor of Incomparable Design and Quality
An Architectural Masterpiece 5 Years in the Making
Designed by Phillip Liederbach of Liederbach and Graham, this magnificent French Manor is set on 3 glorious acres, providing a private haven in one of Lake Forest's most desired locations. Introduced along a winding drive that opens onto a central courtyard with fountain, this masterpiece was 5 years in the making; a labor of love that was well worth the wait.
With meticulously detailed brick work and a slate roof that will stand the test of time, there are 8 total bedrooms, 5 of which are on the second floor, 7.4 bathrooms, 6 enticing fireplaces, a garage that will house 5 cars, guest quarters with a separate entrance that would also be perfect for a grounds keeper, and a stone terrace overlooking an inviting pool surrounded by lawn and gardens.
Pictures can't do this one justice; one simply must experience this home in person to appreciate the incredible attention to detail. Star floor mosaics, intricate custom balusters, a paneled library and a dazzling Murano dining room chandelier are just some of the many highlights. Additional amenities include a second Chef's kitchen, a butler pantry, two laundry rooms, a finished lower level with recreation areas, a changing room with sauna, loads of storage, and a guest apartment with a private entrance that would also be perfect for a grounds keeper.
