When a $4 million home becomes available for lease, potential renters will run, not walk, for the chance to live in a gorgeous Highland Park mansion. The 1928 home stunner boasts 5,120 square feet with four bedrooms and four and one-half bathrooms.
The best thing about it, though, is just a feeling. It’s got that “stately vibe.” It feels like the kind of home that might belong to a congressman or philanthropist. It’s amazing, but not ostentatious, if that even makes sense.
An elegant and sprawling estate with a pool, an elevator and beautiful shade trees, it’s a great space for entertaining on one of the most coveted blocks in town.
The upstairs master bedroom features a sitting area and walk-in closets.
The décor is rounded out with a library featuring built-in bookshelves and a huge kitchen with wood detail, stainless steel and granite countertops, accented by a crisp white backsplash.
Lots of windows bring in plenty of natural light, so it’s a perfect spot to spend an afternoon poolside, invite over a private chef for a dinner party with friends, or, you know, do all those important philanthropy projects.
