On the hunt for a fixer-upper? Awaiting your vision is this century-old French chateau in Lake Bluff. Renowned architect David Adler designed the exquisite 6/6 manse, hidden away on a verdant 8.20-acre estate. Listed as high as $2.595M, it has since fallen to a very reasonable $2.195M. These careworn interiors have seen better days but still abound with old-school goodness evidenced by marble terrazzo floors, ornate plaster wall panels, and a stone staircase. Other specs worth passing along: 13-foot ceilings, four fireplaces, backyard greenhouse, and slate mansard roof. The 9,100-square foot home should have enough give to be updated for modern tastes or restored to aristocratic grandeur. Your call!
