The description on the Realtor listing paints quite a picture:

This lakeshore legacy property is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to establish your multi-generational family compound in the idyllic town of Lake Bluff, Illinois. This 30-acre property with its polo fields and equestrian stables with 13 stalls rivaling Wellington, and 700 feet of private Lake Michigan beach access for boating, is reserved for the discerning buyer who wants the best of both worlds: a luxurious country estate and the convenience of access to metropolitan living.

Polo fields? Swimming pool? Lake Michigan beach access? You had me at hello. Now, let's see if we can find the asking price of $22,900,000 as of this writing. Where did I leave my bag of cash anyway?
