    Description

    Solid newer construction with a nod to old world craftmanship found at the end of a quite road in sought after Lake Forest. 5 bedroom, 6.2 bath. Privacy and land are abundant on this cul-de-sac corner lot sprawling over appx 1.4 acres. Upon entering this limestone and brick, classically symmetric home, you will be greeted with a bridal staircase, soaring 12-foot coffered ceilings, wainscoting and triple crown moldings. The open floorplan offers flexible space and well-appointed rooms that adjust to your lifestyle. With expansive square footage and bedrooms all ensuite, this is a rare opportunity for casual, yet elegant living at its finest in a state-of-the-art Control 4 Smart Home. The sophisticated library, dining room, & family room feature stunning mahogany woodwork, extensive built-ins, & fantastic space for original artwork. The gourmet kitchen boasts a large center island, top-of-the-line SubZero appliances, under counter refrigerator drawers and an eat-in area for memorable family meals. Natural light shines throughout: oversized windows funnel in the sunshine inside, while outside, the screened in sunroom provides additional entertainment space and plenty of fresh air. Head upstairs. The custom primary suite is a true oasis with an oversized walk-in closet / dressing room, all marble bath, separate vanities and large steam shower. Enjoy the appx 20 x 17 private rooftop terrace overlooking mature landscape in the summer or cozy-up to the fireplace in the winter. Rounding out the second floor you will find large bedrooms, bonus room options, a laundry room and plenty of storage. The fully finished lower-level features 9-foot ceilings, fireplace, large wet bar, wine cellar, rec room, full bath and additional home gym/bedroom/office options. Exquisite finishes throughout with quality at the forefront: inlaid hardwood floors, 5 granite fireplaces, heated 3-car attached garage, 2 laundry rooms, attic storage, 2 staircases and Keyth security systems are just the beginning of the endless list. 1240 Winwood is professionally landscaped with stunning stone walkways and patio areas. Taxes have been successfully appealed, ask for details. Steps from your back door you will find the walking trails of Middlefork Savannah, Elawa Farm and the Knollwood Club Country Club. Enjoy all Lake Forest has to offer with award-winning schools, Historic Downtown and Lake Forest Beach!
