Six-plus acres on the lake in Lake Bluff

A 6.4-acre parcel is available either as a vacant lot or a design-build home at 700 Forest Cove Rd in Lake Bluff.

The listing copy bills it as "one of the most desirable properties on the whole North Shore … with 680 feet of lakefront including tire beach, well known to boaters … Room for pool, tennis court, pool house / guest house and boat dock."

If memory serves sandy beachfront is sparse along this stretch of Lake Michigan, and the bluffs are fairly steep. The photos that accompany the listing seem to confirm that. Setting that aside, there are very few parcels of this size or natural beauty available for new construction on Chicago's North Shore.

The list price is $4,195,000 for the land alone, or $6,194,000 with a suggested home. Coldwell Banker's Jeannie Emmert has the listing.
