Winter Wonderwalk Set for December 5
Magnificent Lake Forest residences decorated in holiday finery will welcome Winter Wonderwalk guests of Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart on December 5.
Once again Winter Wonderwalkers will savor the craftsmanship of artisans and the exquisite amenities and details of true residential artistry. Christmas decorations dazzle as they adorn the masterful proportions of these homes, which are among the most historically and architecturally significant properties in the Lake Forest community.
Mark your calendars for December 5, 2012 when Winter Wonderwalk again presents four superb residences: The Schweppe Estate, a 27-room Classic English Renaissance home built in 1916 and designed by Frederick Wainwright Perkins; a stately Georgian built in 1946 and designed by Boyd Hill; a gracious red brick Georgian constructed in ca. 1892 and designed by Henry Ives Cobb; and a Country French style home designed by the Martin Design Group and built in 1995. Knowledgeable docents in each home point out architectural details and decorative features.
