This beautiful brick SMART-HOME with circular driveway, being sold below appraised value, rests above one of the sparkling blue lakes of Lake Forest with a view of the fairway. Living at 14706 Forest Oaks Drive places you at one of the most beautiful settings in the entire subdivision. On the opposite side of the lake is a lush cover of trees and foliage along the bank - no window coverings necessary - like a secluded lake house. In preparation for sale of this 6 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home, Seller has installed a new roof and has painted the interior. Master suite is on the main level and the large eat-in kitchen is equipped with GE ultra-premium grade Monogram Series stainless appliances, which include an upgraded built-in refrigerator/freezer of approximately 30 cubic feet, and a wallsystem for oven and microwave, all to remain. The dining room is open and columned, and the living room looks out over the lake. Several rooms on the main level exit to the upper tier deck which spans most of house. Just beyond the deck is a lower deck, hexagon in shape, which sits out over the water and is accessible from either the main level or lower level. Upstairs, the walkway between bedrooms overlooks the living room on one side and the dining room on the other. Two large bedrooms are joined by a Jack and Jill bath. A third upstairs bedroom has a private en-suite bath. The mirrored exercise room in the finished walk-out basement will support a lot of exercise equipment. In addition to the two bedrooms and full bath in the lower level, there is a huge family room outfitted with projection equipment and movie wall, a magnetic wall and a chalk board wall for the children - great for both learning and playing. Stepping outside at this level is a beautifully landscaped scalloped patio, also spanning most of the home. House systems include a 98.0 High Efficiency Furnace; 80-Gallon Water Heater; Lennox High Efficiency Cooling and Filter; Heat Pump; Healthy Climate Solutions Humidifier; AT&T Digital Life Control which includes 5 live-feed cameras, carbon monoxide detector, water leak detector, alarm system, remote entry to front door and garage and temperature control. The Central Vac System was installed in 2018 and Seller installed a 20 kw generator which will keep the entire home running as usual in the event of a power outage. An appraisal performed within the last 2 months gives this home an effective age of 10 years and was done prior to the installation of the new roof and painting. Lake Forest HOA fees include the use of 5 pools (including 2 kiddie pools and a small family pool), 3 tennis courts, 3 playgrounds, off-duty police patrol, snow removal and salting of streets, park and soccer field, horticulturist/arborist, holiday lighting at entrances and at the Lodge, trash collection and a variety of community activities and social events and much more.
