    Reminds me a bit of the local Maggiano’s restaurant we have down here ( http://www.insidefortlauderdale.com/photos/maggianos.png ) but overall I like it. Very much prefer the estate feel to some cookie-cutter neighborhood.

    I quite like it in general. The exterior has a fairly authentic Italian feel to it and the interior has some nice spaces. The decor could be a little more interesting but, like Daniel said, I’d take this over any beige mock-Med I’ve seen.

    I know this house, whenever I drove by it I always thought it looked like a school or a monastery. Now I will think Maggiano’s also. lol
    Love Lake Forest, one of the best neighborhoods in the country.

    Gorgeuos classic italianate. Not really over board on anything just a nice solid estate. Why am I hearing so many horror stories about land transfer problems in Illinois? Is there some kind of onerous transfer tax?
