Ravenswood is a stately and timeless vintage English Tudor Lakefront residence, that is part of the lore of Harbert. The fact that Carl Sandburg had a home a few hundred feet down the beach is well known, but many do not know the story of this property. Built in the 1930's, it was the dream house for a famous football player turned professional wrestler called "Jumpin Joe Sovaldi". Constructed by his Italian stone mason family, the fieldstone workmanship remains flawless. Owned for the past 28 years by Chaz and the late Roger Ebert, their renovation maintains the elegance of the rooms with amenities of the time. Divided light windows enhance the breathless views of Lake Michigan. The winding lake stairs lead to a rarely available fully equipped guest house, complete with kitchen, full bath and expansive sunset deck leading to the prisitine riparian beach.
