Ready for another helping of luxe suburban real estate? Good, because we've unearthed this enchanting English manor home in Lake Forest. Designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw, it has put in well over a year on the market with nary a price chop. Inside, we're greeted in dramatic fashion by a barrel ceiling adorned with plaster relief moldings. The library comes with rich wood paneling and beamed ceilings. And we'll also sing the praises of the Christopher Peacock kitchen, which rocks a potting room and butler's pantry. Set on two-acres, the 6-bed, 11,000-square foot manse is also good for a sunroom, screened porch, terraces, five fireplaces formal gardens, and a greenhouse. You can call it home for $5.9M. Consider it a belated Christmas gift!
