The front facade had been covered with the unfashionable pebble dash - which you can still see on the left hand side of the left entrance gate pillar.

For decades, Lake Forest has been distinguished by those who have chosen to call it home. With its gorgeous Lake Michigan bluffs and picturesque ravines, it’s no surprise that it has historically been a calming retreat for some of Chicago’s finest families – a place to go to get away from it all and make the most out of life. Today, it has inspired the refined maintenance-free lifestyle at Willow Lake – a community of new homes made for the generations to come.
