A Lake Forest estate with a clay tennis court

Le Corbusier allegedly described a home as "a machine for living in." For many people it's a place where memories are made.

Forest & Bluff magazine offers a look at the memory-making potential of 1200 N Green Bay Rd in Lake Forest, a home that recently came on the market for $6,250,000.

The gracious 11,000 square foot Lake Forest classic has 7 bedrooms, 6 ½ baths, a 7-car garage and an in-ground pool on 4 ½ acres. It was designed by Edwin Hill Clark, an architect who was in the news recently when another of his homes, owned by the late John Hughes, came on the market.

One of the home's more unusual features – unusual for a private estate – is a clay tennis court.

The list price is $6,250,000.
