Future owners of a home at 1022 Aynsley Avenue in Lake Forest are in for a delight. Located in the heart of the Middlefork Savanna and the neighboring Elawa Farm, the property is surrounded by natural beauty. Imagine being able to just walk over to the annual “Bagpipes & Bonfire” event (held this month on September 29), or wander through 600 acres of walking and biking trails just five minutes away. Talk about living in paradise; this 5-bedroom, 5-full and 1-half bath property has it all. Health-conscious families will especially enjoy access to these local treasures. Widely considered a very special gem in the city of Lake Forest, the Middlefork neighborhood appeals to both young families as well as couples with grandchildren. Built in 2002, the custom brick and stucco home resembles many of the great Lake Forest historic estate houses in architectural style and provenance. With a slate roof, 11-foot ceilings, exquisite millwork, hardwood and travertine flooring, and a private first floor library, the property evokes a grander, more genteel time but with all the benefits of modern living. With whole-house surround sound, a gourmet kitchen with new Subzero and Viking appliances, en-suite baths for all bedrooms, media room, exercise room, and a temperature-controlled wine room, this is the epitome of luxury living. And we haven’t even mentioned the English finished basement with a recreation room that has its own fireplace, eating area, and a fifth bedroom suite. Finish your tour outside with a gorgeous private yard enhanced with new pergola, bluestone patio, and grounds meticulously cared for by Rocco Fiore Landscape. Wow.
