His Airness is still top dog in these parts, but most other North Shore estates are dwarfed by this 25-acre pastoral retreat with its collection of outdoor amenities and houses. On the menu: a 1920s main house with five beds, five baths, and 6,100 square feet; guest house; horse stable w/ 20 stalls; and even a brick chicken coop for that elite fowl. The open grounds sport pastures, riding rings, a pool, tennis court, and a private pond. The estate combines seven PINs and, though zoning approvals would be required, could accommodate a buyer's bent toward multi-family redevelopment. But these environs have strong merits of their own. New to market, the initial asking price is $17.5M— a bit less than the MJ estate and Winnetka's "Le Grand Reve", but on par with Vince Vaughn's Palmolive triplex, the city's second-priciest listing.
