The Howard Van Doren Shaw home at 81 Laurel was once considered a teardown candidate but was meticulously restored by committed owners. The Moorish gardens, designed by Rose Standish Nichols, have also been restored.
The 8,000 square foot, 7-bedroom, 6 ½ bath home is on a nearly 2-acre site close to downtown Lake Forest. The listing copy describes it as “a magical place.”
Coldwell Banker’s Ann Lyon has the listing.
