Remember Mr. T and the Tree Massacre?
Well his old (tree-less) property is back on the market! With the addition of some trees…
Mr. T, known for his professional wrestling and acting career (A-Team, Rocky III), purchased this Lake Forest home in 1986 for $1.7 Million. He shocked the nation when he had over 100 trees chopped from the property citing ‘allergies.”
The mansion, called Two Gables, hit the market this week with a price tag of $7.5 million by Andra O’Neill of @properties.
Set on 7.5 secluded acres, this gated and fenced property includes the main house with attached two-car garage, a detached four-car garage with one bedroom apartment, in-ground pool, pool house and two separate driveway entrances. Features include 10 fireplaces, elevator, alarm, lawn sprinklers, Ludowici tile roof, hardwood floors, paneled library, Great Room, butler’s pantry, gourmet eat-in kitchen and more. In 2006, the home was completely renovated and expanded including all operating systems, and was awarded the Lake Forest Preservation Foundation Rehabilitation Award. The front wall was built in November 2009, and the coach house was built in October 2011. Jens Jensen designed the original gardens, most of which have been restored. A truly remarkable home.
