This trophy property offers an ideal sense of safety and seclusion. A rare find in Chicago’s North Shore, you can live on 2+ beautifully landscaped acres overlooking Lake Michigan. Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac block directly east from downtown Highland Park, the home is surrounded by expansive green space framed by grand mature trees. Stairs lead down a professionally terraced bluff to your own private 250-foot beach. (Even now with Lake Michigan at an all-time high and beaches and bluffs disappearing, this home offers a remarkable deep sandy beach and a fully intact bluff.) Other recreational amenities include a pool and an illuminated tennis/sport court. The existing home was designed by award-winning architect, Tony Grunsfeld, who is known for timeless modernist homes that are very private. “That’s where you go hide, that’s where you’re with your family, where you can take your shoes off and be comfortable,” Grunsfeld told the Art Institute. This home offers approximately 9,600 sqft of living space with an attached four-car garage. As you enter the two-story living room, you immediately notice the expansive space, highlighted by loads of natural light and spectacular lake and garden views. Other features include 7 bedrooms (including a main level master suite), two home offices, a wine cellar, dual laundry rooms, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems including a back-up generator. From here, it is easy to walk or ride a bike to neighborhood elementary, middle, and high schools. Although just 30 minutes from the city, this home feels like it is a world away!
