When a young couple decided to set down roots for their family in the wife’s hometown of Lake Forest, they were thrilled to find 875 E. Ringwood, new construction on the coveted east side.
“We were so happy to find this house when we bought it,” the homeowner says. “I know, from growing up here, how difficult it is to find a new house in east Lake Forest that is both charming and move-in ready. The house is surrounded by ravines and has a very spacious, private feeling. We used to say that we felt like we were on vacation when we lived there. It is also easy to go to most anywhere in town from the house—close to Westleigh, right off of Sheridan Road, it’s a very convenient location.”
A major 2006 renovation transformed this home into the exceptional Nantucket style Lannon home it is today. Located on nearly an acre, this home has a breathtaking floor plan and exquisite finishes throughout. The newly remodeled chef’s kitchen has all new custom Nu Haus cabinets, gleaming hardware, and beautiful marble countertops. The spacious eating area was designed with a family in mind, and the mudroom off of the kitchen with built-in lockers, walk-in pantry, and half bath are the finishing touches. There are five spacious bedrooms all with en suite baths; the master bath most recently redone in marble. Other features include a screened porch, finished lower level with sixth bedroom and full bath, finished bonus room above a three-car garage, plus a two-car detached garage with an additional room and full bath. The homeowners would likely have stayed in this Ringwood home had the chance to purchase the wife’s childhood home had not come along.
“This was a great family house,” the homeowner adds. “The layout is perfect for entertaining, which we did often. Once you’re inside, it’s easy to see how logically laid out the house is and how maximized the space is. We spent hours enjoying the yard and the back driveway, which was perfect for riding bikes, playing basketball, whatever we could dream up.”
There are two points of entrance for the home, one off of Ringwood and the other off of Walden. The Walden entrance is a very quiet and safe street—perfect for walking or riding bikes.
“This is a very special house, completely redone, and we hope a special family ends up here.”
