This gorgeous home was built on the former site of the Schwinn Estate. The Schwinn family was owners of the world famous Schwinn Bicycle Company in Chicago.
Ignatz Schwinn started the bicycle company in 1895 and built a beautiful brick home on the hill in 1928. The original Schwinn Mansion stood there until 1993 when the family sold the property. The original home was torn down and this new French Chateaux was built. The original boathouse and other buildings on the property remain.
