A year-by-year guide to the city's prettiest pads
4616 St. John's Drive
Neighborhood: Highland Park
Architect: Cole Smith
Square footage: 19,252
Stats: 7 bedrooms, 9 full baths, 4 half baths
Why we chose it: While we would certainly never knock the whole Tuscan-villa architecture thing, this stunning example of Italian Renaissance is rather refreshing, and the award-winning formal gardens by Lamberts add to the “wow” factor. Honestly, this is the type of house that is usually walled away from inquiring eyes. Lucky for you, it’s not.
