Luxury Offering - 17 Indian Hill Rd Winnetka

This week's luxury offering is 17 Indian Hill Rd., Winnetka.  The property is North Shore fabulous - 10,000+ square feet on two acres overlooking the Indian Hill Club golf course and includes a 7 room couch house. Edwin Clark, a prominent Chicago architect, designed the house in 1928.  So much of what comes to mind when thinking "North Shore" was designed by Clark including Plaza Del Lago, Indian Hill Club, North Shore Country Day School and the Winnetka Village Hall.  Clark also built many noteworthy houses in Winnetka including his own home at 909 Mt. Pleasant in addition to 760 Bryant, 251 White Oak Lane, 1127 Sheridan Rd. and 674 Hill Rd.  The house at 17 Indian Hill Rd. has been on and off the market since 2006 when it was first listed with the real estate bubble price of $9,500,000.  The price was dropped in 2009 to $6,800,000 for a year; the house was subsequently taken off the market for most of 2010. The house was re-listed this February at the current price of $5,495,000. By the numbers: 13 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 5.4 bath on 2 acres.
