Edwin Hill Clark's 'Ferme Le Grand Moulin' Lists For $6.625M

New, 1 comment

Here ye! Here ye! Make way for one of "Lake Forest's most beloved historic homes." Nestled on the edge of a golf course, the arresting French Provincial manse dates back to the roarin' 20s and was designed by Edwin Hill Clark for the Swift family. Since listing last year for $6.85M, it hasn't really budged much price-wise. And for good reason. The nearly 12,000-square foot home lies on an idyllic 3.3-acre spread with a pond, in-ground pool, and a coach house. Its palatial interiors stay true to the home's historic roots without getting too overzealous. The family room, outfitted with vaulted wood beam ceilings and a 17th century fireplace, leads up to a unique lofted space above. There's also a screened-in porch with heated floors and a view of the outdoor gardens. The 6/7 home ups the ante with a remodeled kitchen, office, hardwood floors, sun room, eight fireplaces, and a bluestone patio. The ask? $6.625M.
