Tucked away among the verdant thickets of Highland Park, this historic English manor home has inexplicably languished on the market for over a year with nary a taker. The 7,984-square foot manse, known as "Cravadan," is perched on 1.5-acres of woodlands near the Lake Michigan shoreline. Built in 1915, the home's exterior, which features a pair of soaring, asymmetrical chimneys, is anything but careworn. Inside, tons of original details abound. Cheetah-print chairs aside, we really dig the old-fashioned sitting room with vaulted wood beam ceilings. And how 'bout that Florida room? On the market for $2.695M, the 6/4.5 landmark home also ups the ante with a whirlpool tub, enclosed porch, seven fireplaces, a rec room and a very alluring backyard patio.
