$6.95M Historic Landmark Mansion Sits on Ravine

This Highland Park home is 2.6 acres overlooking a ravine and Lake Michigan. It includes a 55-foot marble entry hall that leads the way to meticulously restored home with a private path to the beach.

From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally-friendly abodes, the North Shore is full of one-of-a-kind homes.

Each week, Patch features one ‘Wow House’ that catches our attention. This week, a Highland Park limestone estate on nearly two acres of beach front property.

Designed by Arthur Huen, this Limestone historic landmark mansion sits on 2.6 acres and overlooks a ravine and Lake Michigan. Located at 105 South Deere Park Road, this home includes a 55-foot marble entry hall that leads the way to meticulously restored home with a private path to the beach.

There's also a remodeled cherry kitchen and a master suite, which is joined by a sitting room and master bathroom with a steam shower, whirlpool tub and original cabinetry.

Except who would want to live in Highland Park. Ruins the house for me. Too many annoying big nosed people.

To very loosely paraphrase Winston Churchill, the noses can easily be changed so as not to offend your refined aesthetic sensibilities, but with the exception of a massive frontal lobotomy, you will wake up every morning with an ugly mind and repugnant disposition.
