Another day, another stately mansion lists in the Chicago area. Today we have an 8,500-square-foot mansion designed by Ralph Milman and built in 1942. The classic Georgian-style mansion stands over a large 6.7 acre lot in coveted Lake Forest, which we all know means big money. According to the listing, the property was once part of the large 80-acre estate of the Chicago area’s famous McCormick family. The house is certainly opulent but by no means gaudy, and it has been throughly overhauled by the current owners. This is a classic home with a highly refined style and it can be yours for $4.3 million.
