Highland Park French streets

This is the elegant French estate you always wanted. Welcome to 4304 Belclaire Avenue, the classic and timeless estate located on one of the most prestigious French streets in Highland Park. The realtor team, TJ Frank and Greyson Johns of Rogers Healy and Associates, just listed this 7,398-square-foot beauty for $5.985 million.

The talented team of builder Christine Goff and architect Will Snyder, who’ve teamed up before for a palatial Versailles Avenue estate we wrote about a few years ago, created this exquisite 2009-built home in Highland Park. Native limestone wraps the exterior with large windows and well-manicured landscaping. Inside you will find an ideal floor plan with five bedrooms, five baths, one powder bath, and an elevator.
