My Notes

Illinois' most architecturally significant estate on Lake Michigan, The Schweppe Estate,' was restored to perfection in 1987 and 1988 by 70 craftsmen, including Italian artisans and Bavarian stonecrafters. The superior construction and level of intricate hand-carved architectural details and finishes rival the grand estates on the east coast. Built of superior materials, this concrete, steel and brick structure features intricate hand-carved limestone, monumental limestone stairs, limestone fountains and ballustrades, Flemish bond masonry walls, slate and copper roofs, decorative copper scuppers, flashing, gutters and downspouts and leaded glass windows with limestone surrounds.This magnificent English Renaissance estate was designed by Frederick Wainwright Perkins in 1917. The Schweppe estate was the gift of Mrs. Schweppe's father, Marshall Field and Company president John G. Shedd. It is beautifully situated on 5.3 lush, private acres overlooking Lake Michigan with approximately 400 feet of beachfront. The extensive exterior hardscape, professional landscaping, decorative monumental fountains, grand terraces with limestone balustrade, and open bluffs edge esplanade make this a place to behold. The west terrace and dramatic east bluff-edge terrace were designed by the eminent Boston firm of Pray, Hubbard and Company. The interior features of this majestic estate include: hand-carved wood millwork and mouldings, hand-carved limestone surrounds and walls, 11 fireplaces with exquisite hand-carved marble and limestone mantles, limestone mouldings, plaster walls and intricate plaster relief ceilings. The spectacular library with hand carved linen fold panels and handsome carved bookcases with exquisite coat of arms detailing is one example of the exceptional craftsmanship embodying this estate. Enjoy the warmth and elegance of the grand sun-filled rooms with amazing views of the beautiful grounds and Lake Michigan.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts 60045 home values will rise 1.2% next year, compared to a 1.7% increase for Lake Forest as a whole. Among 60045 homes, this home is 1113% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 45.3% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 60045, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 2.3% greater than in Lake Forest, and 15.5% greater than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 60045 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Lake Forest.
