Description

Incredibly rare opportunity to own a lakefront historic landmark home! Sitting majestically on approximately 2/3 of an acre this home is surrounded by more than 2 acres of protected land including ravine and bluff that is owned/maintained by the City of Highland Park! This almost 7000 sq ft home was designed by architect William Mann with expansive table land, unobstructed lake views and a close proximity to town. The former estate of Robert E. Wood (Sears Roebuck President + Chairman) presents delightful potential to revitalize a 1929 stone and timber home with a slate roof. Other features include leaded glass windows, 5 distinctive fireplaces, slate foyer, oak beamed ceiling, wood paneled library, an elevator & 3 car garage! Being sold "as-is." Truly a ONCE IN A LIFETIME chance! For more information contact Stephanie Weisman, Allison Silver OR Janet Borden.
