Just wow! From the mansion, to the gardens, the little cafe and how about the plaster moldings! At one point this home was owned by the President of Morton Salt. Purchased by Mr. Driehaus, Chicago philanthropist, in 1999 and he did all of the restoration work. Glanworth Gardens was built in 1906. It is located on forty acres in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Love the wine cellar and the walnut paneled den. The pool and grounds are simply beautiful! The home is situated on 621 feet of shoreline. Thirteen bedrooms, eleven bathrooms and 14,145 square feet. $39,250,000
