660 N Sheridan Road - One of the few examples of outstanding Italianate Victorian architecture in Chicago, this home was built for the first mayor of Lake Forest. Consecutive owners of the property have each contributed to the preservation and restoration of the home's extraordinary architectural details. The impressive residence has a remarkable three-story octagonal tower rising above the roof and an excellent arrangement of beautifully decorated rooms. Details include eleven foot ceiling heights; seven fireplaces, five of which are either antique Italian carved marble or slate; incredible flooring and woodwork, including rare African mahogany staircase and library wainscoting with ash and walnut flooring. Wine tasting room (11x19) with three temperature controlled cellars and 7200 bottle capacity. Gorgeous 2.5 acre site with a prime, central, East Lake Forest location. The bluestone terraces with stone walls, numerous garden areas, sweeping lawns and beautiful pool and pavilion are absolutely perfect Virtual Tour
