This stunning home, located East of Sheridan Road and mere blocks from Lake Michigan, is a completely renovated work of art by highly acclaimed designer, Megan Winters. Originally designed by renowned architect Jerome Cerny in 1962, this beauty rests on 1.85 acres of private land in East Lake Forest. Distinguished by design and defined by quality, this elegant home features cashmere wallpaper, striking light fixtures, and amazing sight lines. While maintaining the charm of the original exterior architecture, an entirely new living experience was created via a fully redesigned floor plan. Pops of color are visually stimulating throughout while fireplace focal points catch the eye. The kitchen is complete with black Viking appliances, an expansive island, leather pull details, large pantry spaces, and opens to the dynamic family room – truly a feast for the senses. The bedrooms are impeccably detailed with a flair for artistic integrity. The expansive property is meticulously landscaped with beautiful views yet offers complete privacy for the owner. This home is a modern day masterpiece.
