Elegant Home On Seriously Large Lot Drops Ball On Decor

New, 5 comments

Curbed's conscience stays a little clearer when tackling luxury properties to the ground, as opposed to working class spreads. This 6,200-square-foot Lake Forest home on 1.4 acres oughta have few difficulties drawing attention — for its overwhelming attributes as well as one or two savagely ugly spaces. The elegant low-slung four-bed boasts seven bathrooms, 10-foot ceilings, paneled library, several fireplaces, hardwood floors, sun room, kitchen w/ butler's pantry, and a disparate array of wallpapers (more pics here). The green fern overlay takes the cake, blitzing one bedroom. But it only rings hideous because the bedspreads and chairs are in cahoots. We know it's natural to crave the tropics in these parts, but lordy! Back to the rosier side, the property's grounds include a tennis court, pool, and a darling little guest house. New-to-market, the seller is after $2.995M.
