GONE! Spectacular Tony Grunsfeld Estate on 3.5 Acres of Lake Michigan Lakefront

1869 Crescent Ct – Highland Park

Delight in stunning lake and lush garden views from dawn to dusk from the most spectacular property available on Chicago’s North Shore. This one-of-a-kind property is comprised of nearly four acres designed and landscaped by Scott Bryon with a AAA-rated bluff that meanders down to a 407-foot sandy beach – both of which are the envy of the North Shore. Verdant outdoor space offers the ultimate in outdoor living with multiple herb and cutting gardens, a swimming pool, a tennis/sport court, and a fire circle perfect for roasting marshmallows on a summer’s eve. And, the greatest luxury of all – total privacy. This opportunity is priced based on the site’s tremendous land value and the flexibility it brings to a new owner. Buyer benefits include the diligent effort and substantial investment made to subdivide this beautifully shaped tableland into 3 lots. The buyer retains the option to consolidate them back into one lot or divide accordingly (details upon request). Designed by Tony Grunsfeld, modernist architect of Chicago, Beverly Hills, and Sun Valley homes for the elite, the existing home is an added bonus. It is defined by its clean lines and sensitivity to site and landscape. The elegant structure is fortified with double-thick 3/4″ drywall, water-tight foundation and exterior materials. This natural light-filled home can easily be renewed to accommodate a variety of personal tastes and styles. The generous layout can be envisioned for today’s lifestyle needs, including private guest suites, zoom/conference areas, at-home offices, or even a recording studio.
