From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally-friendly abodes, the North Shore is full of one-of-a-kind homes.
Each week, Patch features one ‘Wow House’ that catches our attention. This week, it's a $4.95 million elegant Lake Forest mansion.
Located at 1390 Lake Road, this six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is a Lannon Stone Colonial Revival that was designed by Stanley Anderson in 1936 on about two acres across from Lake Michigan. Its got walls of windows, 11-foot ceilings, six fireplaces and a gourmet kitchen with a built in coffee maker and two dishwashers. There's also a winding wrought iron art staircase.
