1711 Devonshire Lane - Once in a lifetime opportunity! Keck & Keck designed 4200 sq, ft. 4br., 4 bth., mid-century modern ranch home with 2-stone fireplaces sits nestled atop the crest of a wooded lot in southwest Lake Forest. This 2.7 acre private retreat boasts a custom home that presents itself as a low wall of naturally colored wood & masonry at the top of a curved driveway. The style is naturalistic, organic design of Frank Lloyd Wright's late 1930s, Usonian style-with warm,earth-hugging, open-planned spaces transitioning through window walls to natural landscapes including many large oak trees. The expansive south single-story elevation utilizes passive solar sustainability floor to ceiling window walls across the house, underneath a broad overhang, let in winter sun but screen out the sun's heat in summer. The home & in-ground pool w/seperate pool house needs to be rehabbed but has major potential. Value is in the land. sold as-is. 2006 LFPF Award Winner. Buyer pays $4/$1000 Transfer Tax.
