Just half an hour away from busy Chicago, a tranquil resort on the shore of Lake Michigan offers an oasis of relaxation worthy of royalty. It’s not often that you find such a mansion—with a private beach, might we add—in Highland Park, yet this display of classical elegance is up for rent right now, at $25,000 a month. Concealed between lavish trees, the limestone manor is an exhibition of symmetry and thoughtful planning.
As you walk through the immense glass entrance and reach the double atrium foyer, grandeur is all that will be on your mind. The incredibly tall ceilings, hosting amazing crystal chandeliers, make the entire home feel like your own private palace. Follow the marble staircases to arrive atop of a delicate wrought-iron terrace which overlooks the double stories living room, with floor to ceiling windows and white Roman columns.

This home is suited for those perfect hosts, as it was designed to offer the best experience for your guests. Entertainment for all tastes is provided with a home theater, a sauna and indoor pool, a workout room, and a game room, and that’s only above the ground.
An exquisite wine cellar and a wet bar are perfect for anyone with sophisticated taste in entertainment, and to complete the lower level, there is a second home theater, an additional bedroom, and a hot tub and spa.
The home opens up seamlessly into the back yard, where a private patio overlooks the lake.
Yet what makes this home a dream come true is the private sandy beach with its own boat dock, from where you can enjoy the lake breeze and the warm sun on a summer day. The wooden stairway that leads to the beach is surrounded by elm trees and beeches, which cast a cool shade on you before reaching the hot, smooth sand.
