Set upon a wooded lot in Lake Forest, IL, this home reflects the rich colonial architectural history of the area while addressing modern family needs. The axial entry and interior galleries create an elegant formal procession of spaces. The central body of the structure houses the main living areas, while the adjacent wing provides ample kitchen and family spaces. An extending loggia creates a transitional covered area for entertaining within the idyllic park-like landscape of the property.
