What remains of the historic Noble Judah estate in Lake Forest is for sale at $5,900,000. The 13,000 square foot, 25-room French Provincial home, on a 3.14 acre remnant of the original parcel, includes 6 bedrooms, 9 full baths, 8 fireplaces, a grass tennis court, an indoor pool - for starters. The spectacular formal gardens are said to be relatively intact.
It's unusual to see a home of this calibre and pedigree on the market at what appears, on the surface, to be a bargain price. Confer the overwrought and thinly-sourced New York Times take on the state of the Lake Forest real estate market.
