Chicago's North Shore is speckled with spectacular lakefront mansions in idyllic multi-acre settings, a fact that instantly triggers skepticism when you encounter one, newly listed for $5.25M, that purports to be the "finest lakefront property on [the] North Shore."
The 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath, 1950s-era home at 581 Ingleside Park in Evanston is on a nearly 1-acre site with 180 feet of park-adjacent Lake Michigan frontage. The property also includes a 1-bedroom guest suite above a 3-car garage.
Prudential Rubloff's Sally Mabadi has the listing.
