There is perhaps no other residence in Lake Forest that epitomizes the word “landmark” quite like the tower house at 51 South Mayflower Road. Built in 1928 and designed by David Adler as the original service buildings and tower to the Alfred Hamill estate, it was subdivided from the main house in the 1950s and purchased by the current owners in the 1980s. Over the years they have rehabbed and transformed the interior into a well-organized single family residence, restored the exterior, and installed extensive landscaping.
