These exquisite, individually designed homes were built with the finest materials and craftsmanship. Designed with natural stone, brick, and stucco exteriors, these Lake Forest homes feature a variety of styles including classic colonial, country manor and Tudor.

It connects to the neighboring subdivision, Country Club Estates, via Walnut Point Dr and Hunters Creek Dr. This community has curbs and sidewalks on both sides of the street.
