Lakefront homes and historic mansions
Sheridan Road, an extension of Lake Shore Drive, is home to the most affluent communities on Chicago’s North Shore. Hugging the shores of Lake Michigan, the grand estates, some originally situated on 100 acres, were built between 1900 and the 1930s by the most prominent architects of the day, including Benjamin Marshall, Howard Van Doren Shaw, and David Adler.
The quick and scenic drive along Sheridan Road to Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, and Lake Bluff offered prominent Chicago families weekend retreats with private beaches, stables, tennis courts, and guest houses. The European-inspired mansions with ballrooms, paneled libraries, and orangeries were replicas of Italian villas, English country homes, and French chateaux.
By the 1970s, the expansive lots began to be subdivided but many of the elegant mansions remained, retaining the grandeur of the Gilded Age. The lush and gated grounds and deep lots shield many of these grand homes as you meander along Sheridan Road, but you will never lose sight of the enduring appeal of Chicago’s North Shore.
