Inside Luxury Homes of Lake Forest

Lake Forest is known for its historic estates designed by famed American architects, like Howard Van Doren Shaw, Edwin Hill Clark, and David Adler. Located on Chicago’s north side, Lake Forest is a picturesque community — banked by lush green lawns and the shoreline of Lake Michigan. As a premier suburb of Chicago, Lake Forest is home to a strong (and often luxe) real estate market.
