There's something majestic about architect David Adler's work. All of his homes look like they could be movie sets, doll houses, or art found in the Thorne Miniature Rooms exhibit at the Art Institute. Either way, they're all incredibly pleasing to the eyes, but maybe not so much to the pocket. This Adler-designed estate out in Lake Bluff looks like a palace, complete with the lawn statues and landscaping. Built in 1922, the brokerbabble states that the home was designed to resemble the La Lanterne, a hunting lodge and presidential retreat in Versailles, and it certainly is a spitting image of its big French brother. At over 7,000 square feet, with five bedrooms, and six baths, this home may as well be fit for French nobility. Its price tag is just the same, at a princely $5.995 million.
