A year-by-year guide to the city's prettiest pads
4200 St. Johns Drive
Neighborhood: Highland Park
Architect: Larry E. Boerder Architects
Square footage: 12,857
Stats: 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 4 half baths
Why we chose it: With the fully grown trees, the amazing gardens, and the dignified digs, we nominate this estate for the next Merchant Ivory film. Let’s just hope Helena Bonham Carter and Emma Thompson will be mindful of the landscape during the croquet scenes.
