Billy Joel’s Sagaponack house is listed with Corcoran. It has just over an acre of property on the beach that he recently had shored up from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. And the house was renovated by the famous Nate Berkus! Real estate house talk is that the home has been on and off the market since 2009. Check out the piano paradise here.
Real Estate House Talk 2.
An English Renaissance estate in Lake Forest, IL is $12,000,000. It reads like a Who’s Who, because this magnificent kingdom was “the gift of Mrs. Schweppe’s father, Marshall Field and Company president John G. Shedd.”
-The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Schweppe is a large restaurant food and equipment supplier in the Chicagoland -
Known as Mayflower Place or Schweppe Mansion, Chicago Magazine says the home has entertained royalty including Edward Duke of Windsor who abdicated his throne for love.
The listing details from Coldwell Banker and Zillow are extensive. “Illinois’ most architecturally significant estate on Lake Michigan. The Schweppe Estate,’ was restored to perfection in 1987 and 1988 by 70 craftsmen, including Italian artisans and Bavarian stonecrafters. The superior construction and level of intricate hand-carved architectural details and finishes rival the grand estates on the east coast.” I am tagging this one for a full post.
