Location translates to luxury and Kelmscott Park, located at 1080 N.

Residents of Kelmscott Park can walk to a local fitness class, grab lunch with friends on the patio of MLG Grill, and then pick up dinner at Fresh Market before heading home.

Thoughtful Architecture

It is rare to commission a world class architect to design a suburban residential community, but in a place like Lake Forest, it is crucial in order to assimilate new structures to an already exceptional aesthetic. Local resident – Larry Booth of Booth Hansen understands Lake Forest and the significance of its architectural historical precedence.

Rich Landscaping

While located just a short walk from downtown Lake Forest, Kelmscott Park has been crafted to feature green spaces that create a haven for residents.
