About 730 S Ridge Road, Lake Forest, Illinois

Auction! $1,500,000 is the suggested opening bid for the online auction, not an asking price; the reserve price is higher. This architecturally significant English country estate, with ties to Marshall Field and Daniel Burnham, was built in 1925. Whitehall sits gracefully upon nearly six acres of rolling green grounds with stunning views of its impeccably maintained English gardens. A large, well maintained, inground pool is the centerpiece of this home's expansive and impressive backyard entertaining areas. This stately manor home with its brick and stone exterior features timeless interior finishes, including many recaptured from England's Shrewsbury Castle circa 1500's. Arguably one of the finest estates designed by Burnham, it boasts both grand entertaining rooms and intimate spaces, high ceilings throughout, eight bedrooms, five full and five half bathrooms, 6 fireplaces, garage parking for five cars, an apartment over one of the garages, and an English pub style entertaining area and bar on the third floor of the home. Appointed with exquisite materials not commonly used in today's construction, from the clay roof, zinc gutters and intricate millwork imported from England throughout, this home would be prohibitively expensive to build today. This is a truly unique opportunity to own a piece of history. Place your winning bid today and begin making your memories in this storybook setting only a lucky few have called home. Pre-auction offers highly encouraged! This property is expected to sell prior to the online auction. The 6% buyer's premium applies: Your client's offer plus 6% = total purchase price. **SUFFICIENT PROOF OF FUNDS REQUIRED FOR ALL SHOWINGS** ***DO NOT SEND CLIENTS TO WALK THE PROPERTY! ACCOMPANIED TOURS ONLY!***
