Interior designer Megan Winters spotted "this charming house snuggled into a very private piece of property” on Crabtree Lane in Lake Forest a few years ago and decided to “bring it back to life.”
79彩票注册网址In its new incarnation, the house sizzles, with large doses of her signature glamorous touches, such as the use of the color black and big horizontal stripes. After buying the house in 2017 for $1.5 million, Winters moved walls to open up sight lines through the house and wrapped a conventional staircase banister in plaster to give it a sensuously curving look.
79彩票注册网址Now preparing to shift their home base to Florida, Winters and her husband, Patrick Winters, listed the five-bedroom, 5,700-square-foot house on about 1.8 acres for sale Jan. 13. Priced at just under $3.8 million, the home is represented by Annie Royster Lenzke of Coldwell Banker.
79彩票注册网址The house is a combination of buildings: a onetime outbuilding from a larger estate; the main section of the house, designed in 1962 by an institution in Lake Forest residential architecture; and a piece built in the late 20th century to connect those two.
Winters, whose firm Megan Winters Design is based in the 79彩票注册网址 Coast, previously revamped and sold two homes in Lake Forest, where she and her husband live and where One of them is a Green Bay Road home that they bought in 2011 for $910,000 and sold in 2017 for $3.15 million. ( in January, for $2.32 million.)
On Crabtree Lane, the centerpiece of the house, the facade with corner quoins, a cross-shaped window and a cupola, “is such a classic,” Winters said. She reorganized the outdoor arrival to focus visitors on it instead of the garage door.
