Description
This 1917 villa, designed by David Adler, was built during an era when Chicago’s wealthy denizens had the time to cruise up the North Shore by yacht—which explains why the home’s grander façade looks not to the street but toward Lake Michigan. In those days, visitors to the villa could dock their boats, climb the stairs up the lakeside bluff, and meander across a deep lawn lined with statuary to be welcomed by their hosts, the Chicago banker and attorney Charles Pike and his wife, Frances. -- http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/June-2012/David-Adler-Designed-Villa-Sells-at-Steep-Discount-in-Lake-Forest/
