    Description

    Like a crown jewel, this modern gem sits at the highest point of Lake Forest's Green Bay Road, on 4.5 acres of woods and park-like grounds. It began as the 1936 architectural masterpiece of George F. Keck (an iconic American modernist based in Chicago), designed after his 1933 World's Fair "House of Tomorrow". Commissioned by Mrs. Bertram Cahn who proclaimed a desire for "The House of the Day after Tomorrow". It is constructed of glass and a formidable steel frame, sheathed in stucco. The home was thoroughly renovated and expanded in 1996 with the addition of a deluxe 2nd story, pool, spa, patio bar and 5-car garage. Legendary designer John Regas created the stunning interior in neutral tones, with extensive use of marble and Birdseye maple. It boasts a soothing waterfall, elevator, open floor plan and extraordinary lower level w/second kitchen, media room, bar, exercise room and guest quarters. With masterful architecture and design, this modern home offers every comfort and amenity!
