Property Description

Set on over 5 private acres is Illinois' most architecturally significant estate on Lake Michigan, Mayflower Place, which entertained royalty several times in its history. This estate was meticulously renovated and restored in 1987 & 1988 by 70 craftsmen and European artists. The superior construction and level of intricate hand-carved architectural details and finishes rival the grand estates on the east coast. Built of durable materials, this concrete and brick structure features hand-carved limestone, monumental limestone stairs, fountains and balustrades, exquisite plaster relief ceilings, a slate roof with decorative copper details & scuppers, and leaded glass windows with limestone surrounds. Enjoy over 425' of lake frontage, 28 rooms/12 beds/11.4 baths and 11 exquisite fireplaces. An opportunity of a lifetime! One must see it to grasp its beauty and truly appreciate the level of detail rarely seen today and impossible to replicate. Truly spectacular!
