Howard Van Doren Shaw-designed mansion on long stretch of lakefront seeks $8M

New, 2 comments

Here’s your chance to own a stately waterfront mansion from one of the area’s greatest architects

A stately Glencoe mansion designed by noted architect Howard Van Doren Shaw has just hit the market seeking $8 million. Built in 1918, the mansion has received some modern amenities over the years, including an elevator, a three-car garage, as well as a mostly newer kitchen and bathrooms. The public listing information shows that this home has not exchanged hands in years, so this is the first time this home has been available in quite some time. Similar to other Howard Van Doren Shaw designs for the North Shore, this home borrows a classic European-influenced flair more typically seen in mansions on the East Coast. The best part however is its 350 feet of private Lake Michigan shoreline.
