    Description

    Designed by renowned architect Edwin Hill Clark for his client Frank G. Reynolds in 1930, this grand Georgian estate is an architectural treasure rich in history and brimming with possibility. Set in a prime location just moments to town, this magnificent home sits on over 5 lush acres overlooking the Lake Forest Open Lands. The majestic nature of the home is exhibited by the beautifully scaled rooms and tall ceilings. The home features special and distinctive details throughout, including coin molding in the living room, terazzo flooring in the enclosed porch, knotty pine paneling in the library, and an elegant and sweeping staircase. Breathtaking views and stunning grounds. Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revitalize this remarkable historic estate and own a piece of Lake Forest history!
