Van Doren Shaw Gem In Lake Forest Won't Budge On Price

New, 2 comments

In the rarefied air of luxe suburban real estate, this monumental Arts and Crafts home in Lake Forest sure ain't no slouch. Tucked away on a generous 3.3-acre expanse near the fringes of a nature preserve, famed architect Howard Van Doren Shaw designed the 114-year old home for John Dorr Bradley. We can't help but be charmed by these 9,350-square foot interiors, which were given the royal treatment in the form of an award-wining restoration. And they keep things nicely vintage without going over-the-top classical. You've got rich woodwork, coffered ceilings, and french doors galore, most with easy outdoor access. The 7/6 home's woody and secluded grounds also toss in a tennis court. A screened-in porch, breakfast room, and five woodburning fireplaces can be counted among its other joys. This place is yours for a mere $3.995M.
