This is a rare offering of an exceptional estate designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw situated on approximately 15 acres in the heart of Lake Forest. Providing the utmost in privacy and unsurpassed natural beauty, the grounds are unparalleled and include wooded areas, meadows, ponds and trails, further enhanced by the adjacent property protected by Lake Forest Open Lands Association. The views are endless and the opportunity for exploring nature becomes part of your day. Approached via a long, tree-lined drive and circular courtyard, the residence is majestic. Once inside, the home has a country house ambiance of gracious comfort. You will be taken by the architectural details, impeccable condition, and sheer beauty of the home. Formal rooms are elegant, yet warm and welcoming. Each room captures a view of the grounds while the west terrace and screened porch provide the perfect setting for watching a sunset over the meadow. Family spaces are cozy spots to enjoy a fire and relax. The de Giulio kitchen is spacious and well appointed. It includes a fabulous butler's pantry and a separate breakfast room that opens to the terrace. Adjacent is the family room overlooking and providing access to the children's play area, greenhouse and gardens. The second floor provides a beautiful master suite with fireplace, sitting room, loads of closets and two private baths. There are four superb family bedroom suites, plus a live-in suite. The property is complimented by a charming and spacious two bedroom coach house at the Green Bay Road entrance, which could serve as a home office or guest house. The former stable provides six bays for cars and equipment. There is a delightful two bedroom apartment here as well. A greenhouse and tool shed fulfill the needs of tending to the vegetable garden and lovely cutting gardens. Summer allows for enjoyment of the pool, which is situated in a tranquil, unobstructed spot and provides a full day of sunshine! 980 Green Bay has been a beloved family home for 40 years. The blend of nature and privacy found within moments of the Village of Lake Forest is unique indeed. Continuing as stewards of this estate will be a decision you will not regret.
